Foodies, get excited: there are six new hot restaurants arriving this month to add to your ever-expanding bucket list.
From the brunch spot taking over the city to a new pink-themed pizza joint, here are six restaurants opening up their doors for the first time this month.
If there’s a new brunch spot arriving in town you know for sure that we’re going to wax lyrical about it, and this month it’s the arrival of brunch giant Beam’s Notting Hill branch.
Opening up on Westbourne Grove, Beam will be bringing its culinary expertise to the table, serving up a mix of classic breakfast staples and Middle Eastern favourites, including their glorious spiced breakfast spread, Kahvalti. Serving two, the feast features spicy sausage, halloumi with honey, filo pastries, aubergine salsa, fried eggs with chilli, hummus, beetroot borani and more.
There are also a few sneak peak designs for the new site too, which incorporates hanging lampshades overhead and rust orange walls.

Lockdown brought with it a lot of sadness, heartache and problems, but the period did birth a few happy stories along the way, including the arrival of Love Triangle, a new artisan pizza joint in Balham.
Set up by three friends who all lost their jobs to the pandemic, Love Triangle merges three millennial highlights: pink interiors, awesome branding and pizza. Not to mention a great terrace too that’s set to open soon.
The dough is perfectly cooked inside their brighter than life pizza oven (it’s got a quirky face on it – definitely worth a shot for the ‘gram), and we love their n’duja and fennel topped pizza that’ll add a fiery kick to your day.
For every pizza ordered too, the team donates a meal to their local food bank. A meal with a conscience.

Set up by sisters Grace and Victoria Sheppard after working in hospitality for several years, Queens of Mayfair is a brand new speciality coffee shop-cum-cocktail bar in Mayfair. The pair decided to make their dream a reality, offering high quality and artisanal produce to the London market.
By day, it’s a coffee shop, boasting a delicious breakfast and lunch menu and by night, it’s a new cocktail and wine bar, serving up an exceptional cocktail filled with classics.
Originally slated to open at the beginning of the year, Queens of Mayfair has finally arrived, cocktails in tow, and we couldn’t be more excited to head down for a glass of rosé.

Boasting outposts in Covent Garden and Southwark, Tandoori Chop House has recently launched its third location inside Eggbreak in Notting Hill.
The team will be serving up their renowned Northern Indian menu, while still championing the best of a classic British chop house. Think punchy spiced flavours with carefully selected cuts of meat. On offer will also be dishes from their other delivery based restaurant, Tandoor Tacos. We’d recommend trying the ‘great paneer’ taco, a mix of egg paratha, jalfrezi mix, paneer, pickle onion, green chutney, fennel, lettuce and coriander.

Chicken wings can often be so disappointing. Dry, halfhearted additions to the menu but Wingmans has other ideas. The eatery has become renowned for its succulent, often spicy, freshly dipped buttermilk wings and sauces, and they’ve just landed a brand new restaurant slap bang in the middle of Soho.
Get your wing fix and order in a boat load of their signature offerings, from their award winning buffalo with blue cheese and celery wings to their sweet and smoky bbq bites. Add on some truffle parmesan fries and spicy Korean cucumbers and you’ve got yourself a meal to remember.

Influenced by the street food market, Piss Alley, in Tokyo and Latin American’s street food stalls, Sugoi Jpn started life as a humble street food vendor and has announced it will be rapidly expanding across the city, with two new openings arriving this month.
Their premise is rather unique, a Japanese-Latin fusion style taco or ‘noritaco’ as they call it. It’s essentially a crispy seaweed tempura shell with a range of exotic flavours.
Their first new venue, in South Wimbledon, opened earlier this month and just three weeks later, a new venue in Palmers Green will be arriving on 27th August. All available for delivery or takeaway.
