Top 10 new London restaurants to watch in 2019

Nathan Outlaw at The Goring

A royal family favourite, The Goring hotel is opening a new restaurant, its first for more than 108 years, with famed Cornish chef Nathan Outlaw at the helm. Promising “the best, freshest seafood in London”, The Goring in Belgravia plans to open the as-yet-unnamed site by the end of April, and will focus on sustainable Cornish seafood.

The new restaurant will offer a more “casual alternative” to its existing Dining Room, which has held a Michelin star since 2016. The Dining Room at The Goring has an impressive wine list, overseen by sommelier Jean-Baptiste Lemoine. Ranked 42nd in London by Wine List Confidential, the restaurant embraces Bordeaux and Burgundy while “hovering a torch over the New World and emerging regions,” our experts said.

Housed in an ornate orangery, Outlaw’s restaurant will overlook the hotel’s garden. The Goring’s bar is also set to be transformed into a bright, lively space serving classic cocktails and British spirits.

“We’re building an eccentric, uplifting space with the help of some very special craftsmen and designers, and the restaurant will be all about simplicity on the plate, freshness, and our usual heartfelt British service,” added CEO Jeremy Goring. Outlaw already holds two Michelin stars at his eponymous restaurant in Port Isaac, and will spend two days a week in his new kitchen.
