Hot new London restaurant openings

Gizzi Erskine at Mare Street Market

Known for her angel wings tattoo and Audrey Hepburn updo, celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine will open her first permanent restaurant this month inside the shiny new Mare Street Market in Hackney.

Aiming to please, the place will have multiple personalities, operating as a florist, record shop and coffee roasterie in addition to a wood-fired restaurant and cocktail bar.

The 70-cover space, which was initially intended to be run by Nuno Mendes, will boast a giant rotisserie and wood-fired ovens and will serve dishes inspired by California’s farm to table movement with a firm focus on veg.

Dishes on the opening menu include rotisserie chicken with bearnaise and watercress salad; roasted buffalo cauliflower with gorgonzola and pickled celery; whole salt-baked celeriac with romanesco; and steak tartare with bone marrow and marmite soldiers. Don’t miss the miso caramel banana split dessert.
