Exciting new restaurants: London's hot openings of the week
This week, we're celebrating two staples of the London foodie scene which are each branching out into new territories. Lina Stores, the Soho deli dating back to 1944 that last year opened its first restaurant – a pastel-coloured pasta parlour also in Soho – has now opened a second, larger site in Granary Square. The King's Cross site sees the brand's deli and restaurant offerings housed together for the first time.
Meanwhile, suave restaurant group The Ivy is set to take Londoners east with the opening of The Ivy Asia in St Paul's. Much like the Manchester branch, the offering here is Asian-inspired cuisine and theatrical cocktails served up in a luxe, colourful setting.
