Hot new London restaurant openings

Leroy

Michelin-starred London Fields bistro Ellory has a new name and location. Its new incarnation is called Leroy and the quirky small plates venue has upped sticks to Shoreditch.

Inspired by the buzzy bistros of Paris, Leroy is more laid back than its big brother, and will serve sharing cuts of meat and fish for groups, alongside oodles of shellfish.

Owner Ed Thaw has also done away with the tasting menu, and is instead encouraging head chef Sam Kamienko to take inspiration from his days cooking at La Verre Volé in Paris.

On the current menu are delights like whipped cods roe; whelks and garlic mayo; smoked eel with quail egg and crêpe parmentier; scallops with lemon butter; lamb sweetbreads with morels in a nettle and wild garlic sauce; and poached rhubarb and milk ice cream.

On the drinks front you’ll find homemade vermouth in addition to a sizeable wine list filled with European drops, including Aglianico from co-founder Jack Lewens’ Italian project Vigneti Tardis in Campania, and wines from further afield.
