Hot new London restaurant openings


One of the most ambitious openings of the year will see chef Ollie Dabbous join forces with Russian tech billionaire and owner of Hedonism Wines in Mayfair, Yevgeny Chichvarkin, to launch a 170-seater fine dining restaurant set across three floors within a 1960s building overlooking Green Park.

Called Hide, the venue boasts three separate sections – cocktail bar Below headed up by Dabbous’ former business partner Oskar Kinberg; Ground, a more casual dining restaurant at street level; and Above; a tasting menu driven fine dining restaurant run by Dabbous.

Master Sommelier Piotr Pietras has been plucked from Launceston Place to look after what will be London’s largest wine list, stretching to 6,800 bottles, and a team of 16 sommeliers.

Every single bottle sold at Hedonism will be available to order from iPad wine lists at Hide, and Pietras promises that bottles can be delivered to the restaurant in as little as 12 minutes.

The site also features three private dining rooms, a walk-in cellar, and the option for guests to choose their own decanter.
