HOTTEST OPENINGS OF EARLY 2015

Usually, the start of the year is quite a slow mover on the restaurant scene - London is plagued by people adopting new diets and money saving resolutions. 2015 was slightly different. London was gifted more epic with Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street, the ground-breaking Kurobuta Chelsea gets a permanent home, a Hoxton favourite finds a second home in Islington with The Dolls House, and Bone Daddies pops up in Soho with Bone Daddies Shakfuyu. Find out more about these and a loads of other great London restaurant openings of Early 2015
