The hot new spots across the capital
MARIA G’S FULHAM
The time has come for Robin Gill’s second iteration of Italian goodness, this time on the riverside and aptly serving much more fish. The baked crab rice, cooked with fennel, winter tomatoes and vermouth is bellissimo. Now open. 20 Central Avenue, SW6 (mariags.co.uk)
Hear ye, hear ye, Richard Caring’s latest spectacle has arrived. Based around the wildest Greek god, Bacchus, expect decadent plates of Mediterranean food and a waiter whose sole job is feed you grapes.
Now open. 1 Mount Street, W1 (bacchanalia.co.uk)
Penelope’s has arrived at Hotel Amano in Covent Garden, promising a mix of Spanish and Israeli cooking plus the wildly booze and boogie-heavy parties that made the hotel’s Berlin venue such a hotspot. Now open. 34–43 Russell Street, WC2 (@penelopes.london)
