What to do This Weekend: 28th -30th July

This weekend it’s all rather foodie, from baking pop-ups to help those in Syria, to British brunches, free pisco sours and new breakfasts. It’s time to get your eating pants on…

Nobu Hotel Shoreditch

What: World of Nobu Festival

Why: For the first time, the World of Nobu festival is being hosted in Europe and it takes place today and tomorrow…so you might want to change your plans. Happening at the recently opened, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, the festival will be a series of special dinners, masterclasses, sake tasting and the chance to try a selection of Nobu’s world renowned dishes and canapes from the different Nobu restaurants around the world.

Plateau

Canary Wharf (0.2 miles)

What: Peroni at Plateau

Why: The heatwave might have gone, but that doesn’t mean we now have to hide in doors – we’re Londoners and it’s summer after all, we can still drink outside. Plateau have teamed up with Peroni so that from Thursday until the end of September you’ll be able to drink the recently-launched Peroni Ambra and eat oysters, smoked salmon and sorbet on their (hopefully) sunny terrace.
Launches Thursday 27th July 

Where: 4th Floor, Canada Place London, E14

#CookForSyria

What: #BakeForSyria

Why: Want to do some good? Want to eat cake? Then you need to head to #BakeForSyria which is taking place this Saturday over on Columbia Road. Part of the #CookForSyria initiative, the pop-up will see some of the best restaurants and bakeries in London cook one of their dishes with a Syrian inspired twist. Those taking part include Dominique Ansel Bakery, Fatties Bakery, Lily Vanilli Bakery, Pizza Pilgrims and The Boy Who Bakes and if you like baking then you can bring you own Syrian inspired bakes to be judged by the likes of Rosie Birkett and Chetna Makan. Ready, Steady, Bake!

Where: Columbia Road East London, E2 7RN

Camden Town Brewery

What: Beer Party

Why: Open days, tend to make you think about walking around prospective universities, but we’re over that now…sadly. That’s ok though, because we have a better open day for you – Camden Town Brewery, are opening the doors to its new £30 million Enfield Brewery and you’re invited. It’ an all-day party of live music, workshops, brewery tours, tastings, talks, food from the likes of Walter and Monty’s, Texas Joe and Polpo and of course beer. That’s not all though, there’s a bouncy castle (that’s for the children though, you have the beer), screen printing and design workshops curated by Beach London Gallery and a skate park from Slam City Skates. Best open day we’ve heard of.
Saturday 29th July

Roast

London Bridge (0.2 miles)

What: British Brunch

Why: This week we’re five events in, so you know what time it is? It’s brunch time, yep don’t worry we wouldn’t give you a weekend guide without a brunch and this week it’s the turn of Roast and their new, very British brunch. Happening every Saturday you’ll be able to feast on buttermilk pancakes with cinnamon, berries, yogurt and a pistachio crumble, avocado on toasted brioche, lobster or pork cheek eggs benedict and meatier dishes like beef wellington and the ultimate roast burger. Pair it with a Bloody Mary and say hello to the weekend.

Where: The Floral Hall, Stoney St, London SE1 1TL

108 Brasserie

Bond Street (0.4 miles)

What: Breakfast on the Lane

Why: The problem with brunch is that it often doesn’t start until 12pm, so what do you do if you want to eat before that at the weekend? It’s called breakfast and yes, people do still eat breakfast. 108 Brasserie, have in fact, launched a new breakfast menu this week, ‘Breakfast on the Lane’. Served on the terrace, the new menu includes sweetcorn fritters, avocado, grilled halloumi, smoked red pepper and tomato relish; toasted banana bread with ricotta and caramelised pecans, chia porridge with pomegranate and toasted coconut and avocado on toast with chilli flakes and grilled plum tomatoes – grab a paper and make a deal out of the most important meal of the day.
Available Daily

Where: 108 Brasserie, Marylebone Lane, London

Umu

Oxford Circus (0.5 miles)

What: When You Need to Impress

Why: Mayfair restaurant Umu have recently launched this season’s Kaiseki, a tasting menu which combines precision, originality and seasonality. Kaiseki is Japan’s most exquisite culinary tradition and despite the fact that originally it was a simple, vegetarian meal served during the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, Kaiseki has now evolved into an elaborate fine dining experience, served in Michelin starred restaurants around the world. At Umu Executive Chef Yoshinori Ishii and his team aim to convey the message of the season through their culinary expertise and once again they did not fail with the summer tasting menu – if you’re looking to impress this weekend then head to Umu.

The Piano Works

Farringdon (London) (0.2 miles)

What: We Don't Just Live For the Weekend: Jukebox Live

Why: Monday – might not be the night you tend to go out, but here’s why you should. Firstly it’ll definitely get rid of any Monday blues and secondly if you go to The Piano Works you’ll find live music all evening, so you can dance your way into the week and drink deals from £2.50 – it’s like a Monday student night, except the venue is great, there aren’t any sticky floors and no 9am lecture the next day – just work, but that’s fine, you get paid for that.
Monday 31st July and then every Monday 

Where: 113-117 Farringdon Road, corner of Ray St Farringdon, London, EC1R 3BX
