New London restaurant openings: August

The Frog

The Frog

Rather than a tongue-in-cheek jibe at the French, The Frog is the debut solo venture of 27-year-old wunderkid and MasterChef: The Professionals finalist Adam Handling. Nestled inside the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, the light and airy interiors of the 60-cover site echo the vibrant freshness of the plates, which are painterly in presentation.

At just £45, the 10-course tasting menu offers amazing value via the likes of cheese doughnuts with truffle butter; salt cod, cucumber and lime; asparagus, burnt butter and crispy peas; and BBQ veal tartare with chili and herbs. Sugar fiends can get their fangs around burnt honey, malted ice cream and lemon for pud. Wine pairings cost £35 and beer pairings £25, giving The Frog’s extensive craft beer offering a chance to shine.
