Top 10 food and drink trends for 2018

Glam gastropubs

Gastropubs are having a bit of a moment in the capital, and are being given the star treatment. Leading the charge is The Wigmore, a ‘luxury’ gastropub with food by Michel Roux Jr inside The Langham hotel in Marylebone, which boasts plush Art Deco interiors, including emerald green walls and gold table lamps, and serves the likes of paprika-glazed short rib with a bone marrow crumb, and masala-spiced Scotch eggs.

Meanwhile, late last year Layo and Zoe Paskin, the dynamic duo behind The Palomar and The Barbary, took over The Blue Posts pub on Rupert Street in Soho. Giving it a dash of their signature magic, the venue boasts The Mulway cocktail bar on the first floor and Evelyn’s Table, an 11-seater kitchen counter located in the old beer cellar.

King’s Cross newcomer the Racketeer is equally glam with its midnight blue wallpaper and killer cocktail list, which incudes sips like the Black Spice, featuring Rittenhouse 100 Rye, PX Sherry, dry curaçao, Fernet Branca and a black pepper tincture.
