 If you’re looking for somewhere warm to escape to after work tonight, how about grabbing a last minute table at J. Sheekey for their chef series? If you’re waiting for the cold weather to blow over and anticipating the sun, you might want to pick up a pair of the new Off White x Air Jordan 1, dropping on Saturday. Or, look ahead to spring openings. We just got news that Fare Bar and Canteen – a new spot from Sager & Wilde – is coming to Clerkenwell in March, and there’s more below. P.S. We’ve been making our way around for long overdue visits to restaurants, and Bar Douro comes highly recommended.

#UJLoves Shoreditch restaurant Lyle’s, and their Guest Series is a great way to taste a new menu from a globally-renowned chef.

Ahead of Stokey fave Perilla’s refurb (they’ll be back open on 5th March with a new bar, a new menu and a new vibe), we spoke to founders Ben Marks and Matthew Emerson about their London.
What's your favourite restaurant in London?
Ben: It has to be The Ledbury, I’ve never eaten food that good anywhere else.
Matt: Portland in Fitzrovia – delicious food, a great wine list, a beautiful space and with fantastic laid back service.

Where do you go to celebrate?
Matt: The Laughing Heart in Hackney because they have a fantastic wine list and it’s open after hours (perfect when you work in hospitality).

Which chef should we be watching right now?
Ben: Daniel Fletcher from Fenchurch Restaurant at the top of the Sky Garden and Aaron Potter of Trinity, watch this space!
