The Best Food in London this October

The Best Food in London this October

4 October 2017 Livvi Alderson-Tuck

Now London has seemed to squeeze every ounce of sunshine out of the summer, it is time to turn our minds, and stomachs, to autumn officially! October brings all the best bits of this season; Halloween, pumpkins and thus warm, comforting dinners. Head to one of these new openings in October to try out some of the hearty, delicious dishes on offer in London.

Long gone are the Pinot Blushes and Aeperol Spritz’s of summer; tis the season for a comforting glass of red wine. And what goes better with a glass of red than a big hunk of cheese? Well, look no further for your winter supply as there is a new cheese haven opening in Bloomsbury. La Fromagerie are a company which already supply London’s best restaurants with cheese, but now have their own place in a beautiful renovated, old period building. La Fromagerie will sell a vast variety of cheese from around the world, alongside crispy, flavoured crackers, soft, floury bread and homemade chutneys as accompaniments. They will also serve brunch, lunch and dinner, consisting of charcuterie sharing boards, a smoked salmon and oyster bar and dishes championing the chef’s favourite cheeses from their wide selection. Opening 27th September on Conduit Street, this will brie a grate new spot in London (we couldn’t resist).

The founder of some of London’s favourite and best restaurants is back in the Big Smoke this autumn, with a new restaurant located in Marylebone. Alan Yau, father of Hakkasan, Yauatcha and on a more casual level, Wagamama’s, will be opening Yamabahçe at the end of September. Moving away from the Asian influences of his previous ventures, this restaurant will be championing the Turkish speciality, Pide; a type of Turkish pizza made with flatbread style dough in hot clay ovens, stuffed with delicious fillings such as ground meat, vegetables and spices. Still not a huge amount of information on this new hotspot, but if the quality and popularity of his other restaurants is anything to go by, this is one to add to the list.
 
Do you consider pasta as a main food group? If so, this new restaurant from Stevie Parle, of Palatino and Craft London fame, is right up your street. Pastaio is a cosy new opening, right in the centre of Soho, which will be serving up big bowls of freshly made pasta, carrying a range of delicious sauces and toppings made from seasonal British ingredients. They even serve a gluten free option, to satisfy the needs of those who drool over pasta yet usually must refrain; a pesto, green bean and potato dish. For those who take a ‘no holding back’ approach when it comes to pasta, try the indulgent pork and rabbit agnoli. And if, for some absurd reason, you are a little tired of pasta, there are plenty of Italian inspired small dishes to choose from, or even their fried mozzarella sandwich, which we are betting tastes as good as it sounds. All sloshed down with prosecco slushies, for those who love Italia, this is the new spot for you.
 
Everyone loves a street food success, and Claw is most certainly one of those. After being an acclaimed pop up around the country, everywhere from Southbank Food Market to Green Man Festival, Claw is opening its first permanent home in Kingly Court. In the smoky urban landscape of London, let Claw take you to the windswept, fresh coastline of Devon with its responsibly and sustainably sourced crab, served in soft rolls with crunchy lettuce and smooth mayo. However, now Claw has a firm home on land, they will also be introducing other meats into their menu, such as their duck nuggets and bacon and scallop breakfast rolls- beats a McDonalds any day!

This latest branch from Caravan will be situated in Bloomberg Arcade, serving up a new range of dishes and whole new brunch menu. Opening in a fortnight, Caravan City will still offer up the same delicious food as its other venues, such as the coveted pizzas (the house-made pork and fennel sausage pizza with spinach, mozzarella and chilli is mouth-wateringly good) and their range of tapas style small dishes, which use quality ingredients and showcases flavour combinations from around the world. There will also be a ‘shrub station’ as with other Caravans, where you can mix your own drink. However, with a new restaurant comes a new focus on fermentation and raw ingredients which should add something a little different to the menu. Situated over three floors, this expansive restaurant will be a great new addition to the City’s restaurant scene.
