5 of London’s Top Restaurant Spin Offs

You may or may not have noticed, that a lot of top restaurants are opening smaller and often less expensive versions. More restaurants means there is more opportunity for people to sample and experience some of these wonderful places. Here the Handbook has picked out its top 5 that we think are worth checking out.

Duck And Waffle Local

What: In and Out At The Duck And Waffle Local

Why: Duck and Waffle has been a raving success and just last year they opened Duck & Waffle Local. It may be a more casual affair but it’s just as tasty. You can order at the counter before being shown to a table, or you if you’re in a rush you can pick up food to takeaway. The same great quality just delivered at a faster pace and for your convenience.

Where: 52 Haymarket, St. James's, London SW1Y 4RP

Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea

What: Cinnamon Kitchen

Why: The Cinnamon Club’s superstar chef Vivek Singh is opening yet another restaurant, this time at Battersea Power Station. Expect a sleek and urban feel inside, in keeping with the whole regenerated site, channelling industrial minimalism. Not so the menu, which will be a medley of Singh’s Indian creations spread over brunch, lunch and dinner as well as cocktails and light bites from Monday to Sunday.

Where: Battersea Power Station, 4 Arches Lane, SW11 8AB

The Ivy Cafés

What: The Ivy Collection

Why: The Ivy has been expanding for a while now and were one of the first to create the concept of a more affordable spin off. Keeping the same chic style whilst providing a more casual experience “The Ivy Cafés and Brasseries offer accessible all-day dining in a friendly environment”, and can be found across the whole of London and other cities in England.

Where: Multiple across London
