Spring’s Scratch MenuOptimo at Village Underground
Skye Gyngell’s majestic, marble-clad Spring restaurant is usually a treat night only affair, but her new ‘Scratch’ menu changes all that. It’s £20 for three courses, and aims to use up the rest of the biodynamically grown Fern Verrow farm ingredients from the previous night’s menu to create dishes like salt cod croquettes and acquacotta. Yesterday’s bread becomes tomorrow’s bread pudding: we like. Glaswegian DJ duo JD Twitch and JG Wilkes return to Village Underground for another night of chaos. Known for their eclectic mix of rock, pop, techno and house, you never know quite what to expect from the pair, which only makes seeing them play more fun. This time around they’ve bought iconic San Francisco DJ Solar to join them in the booth.

Heads up design lovers; the Spring edition of SAMPLE is coming to the Greenwich Peninsula Garden. Celebrating the beginning of the new season (which, let’s face it, is obviously an excuse to buy new things) SAMPLE showcases a curated selection of designers from all realms: fashion, beauty, art, design and homeware. Spring is literally in the air, as the garden will be filled with specially-picked foliage from the Royal Horticultural Society. Plus, located just around the corner, Stevie Parle’s CRAFT London will be hosting a special 3-course SAMPLE menu throughout the weekend. Just in case all that shopping makes you hungry.
SAMPLE takes place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th March at Greenwich Peninsula, SE10 0SQ. Nearest tube North Greenwich.
Shutters Down! at Somerset HouseDo Ho Suh, Passages
As part of her Somerset House residency, Manchester-based songwriter LoneLady brings her Shutters Down! club night to London. The Deadhouse – Somerset House’s secret subterranean chapel – will be transformed with an atmospheric installation, whilst LoneLady and friends will be playing tunes inspired by post-industrial landscapes. South Korean artist Do Ho Suh brings his incredible fabric city to N1’s Victoria Miro Gallery. His signature life-size pieces of architecture have caused a bit of a stir in the capital, so you better either get down early or be prepared to queue. It’s so worth it, but don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Rail House Café’s Soft Launch

Nape by Cannon & CannonSaturday Night Fever at the BFI
We brought you news that these guys were opening a few weeks back, but now the Borough Market charcuterie experts’ restaurant is finally open. Of course, it’s meat meat meat on the menu, but we’ve just heard there are also toasties (Welsh sobrasada, cow’s curd, pickled fennel and Wiltshire ham with Keen’s cheddar and leeks) and also doughnuts from Bread Ahead. How to beat your Sunday hangover? A walk along the river and a feel-good movie. The BFI Southbank supplies just that this weekend, with a one-off screening of Saturday Night Fever. There’s cheesy disco. There’s dancing. There’s John Travolta in a jumpsuit. What more can we say?
