Nosh Garden

Those on a post-summer health kick need to know about new opening Nosh Garden Kitchen at boutique hotel, La Suite West in Hyde Park. Super healthy – think beetroot carpaccio, umeboshi broth with black soba noodles and vitamin-packed juices – it’s a totally guilt-free way to indulge; lasuitewest.com

2. OSLO (Hackney)

Oslo Hackney

Oslo Hackney

East London favourite Oslo, which has just relaunched its brunch, lunch and dinner menus, has an unmissable live music programme. Alongside an innovative cocktail menu (an Icelandic Martini and Oslo Spritz are our recommendations) there’s an extensive menu and cool club nights; oslohackney.com

3. BOKI (Covent Garden)

Boki Seven Dials

Boki Seven Dials

New opening Boki, in Seven Dials, is a haven from the after-work crowds. By day, pop in for superb coffee and fresh dishes; by night, small plates and coffee-inspired cocktails. We like the sound of the protein-packed Boki Bowls, which will no doubt offset all the craft beer later; bokisevendials.com

4. MINT GUN CLUB (Stoke Newington)

Mint Gun Club

Drinks expert Richard Hunt, formerly of Hawksmoor and Mahiki, is at the helm of the just-opened Mint Gun Club in Stoke Newington. Expect globally-inspired cocktails and a high tea which includes cucumber kimchi sandwiches, semolina cake and Turkish delight. Personally, we’re quite taken by the perfect, fragrant gimlets; onesour.com
