5 Great New Restaurants in Central London

Living in London, one of the culinary capitals of the world, means you are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. From spectacular street food to refined Michelin-star creations, knowing where to try next can be overwhelming. We can tell you the choice is not about to get any easier thanks to these incredible new restaurants opening their doors in 2022. 


Meaning “the warmth of the sun in winter”, Apricity is an appropriate name for the new sustainable eatery by award-winning chef Chantelle Nicholson. Themes of warmth, regeneration and light will be prevalent throughout the restaurant, from how Chantelle takes care of her staff, to her no-waste approach to food.

Chantelle works with small scale British farmers to champion the best of their local produce. The seasonal menu will have both omnivore and herbivore tasting dishes, featuring sustainably caught fresh Cornish mackerel, juicy Shetland mussels, wild garlic, and tender oyster mushrooms. 

If you fancy a tipple with your meal, you can choose from a seasonal cocktail or a low intervention wine that tastes as fresh and flavourful as nature intended.

Apricity will open its doors on 12 April 2022 at 68 Duke Street, Mayfair, London W1J 6JU.


British-Ghanaian chef Akwasi Brenya-Mensa established his name at various pop-up supper clubs around London but will open the doors to a more permanent establishment this year.

Akwasi’s flagship restaurant will be located across the ground and the first floor of The Africa Centre in Southwark. The restaurant’s design takes inspiration from the famous chop bars in Ghana, where people come together to connect around food, art, and culture.
Tatale takes its name from the Ghanaian street food dish, the plantain pancake, and the entire menu will showcase a collection of the tastiest Ghanaian and pan-African dishes.

Customers will be able to choose from flavour-packed dishes, such as Omo Tuo Nkatekwan Sesame - mashed rice with groundnut, peanut soup or the iconic Tatale Signature Chicken burger, featuring crispy buttermilk fried chicken topped with lashings of chilli, citrus yoghurt and basil oil. 

Tatale will be opening on 7 June 2022 at 66 Great Suffolk St, London SE1 0BL.


When translated, Lisboeta literally means “a person from Lisbon," perfectly describing head chef and owner Nuno Mendes.

Nuno is passionate about his Portuguese heritage and hopes to transport diners on a culinary journey around Portugal, allowing customers to taste and feel what it would be like to be served food in an authentic Portuguese environment. 

Located across three floors, guests are welcome to dine from midday through to evening, with a range of menus to choose from, including ‘Petiscos’ – small plates or ‘Tachos & Travessas” – larger plates. 

Diners will experience the gastronomical goodness of cured greater amberjack from the Azores Islands and Carabineiro prawns and razor clam rice from the sunny Portuguese shores. 

Lisboeta recently opened their doors to the public on 21 March 2022 and are located at 30 Charlotte Street, London W1T 2NG.


Widely acclaimed head chef and owner, Louis Korovilas, is bringing Sicilian street food and fresh pasta dishes to the people of Islington.

Noci, meaning Italian for ‘walnut’, showcases the best of local produce with an ever-evolving seasonal menu. Diners can marvel at the talented chefs as they hand make each individual pasta shape that will feature in classic dishes, such as Open Ravioli with Herbed Lamb Shoulder or Brown Butter Cacio E Pep Bigoli. Or, for a taste of Sicilian street food, sample the incredible Squid Fritti.

Diners can wash down their tasty meal with a refreshing seasonal drink, such as a pear & marjoram spritz or a full-bodied Italian wine.  

Noci opened on 11 March 2022 and can be found at 4-6 Islington Green, London N1 2XA.


Roji means “the path of stones," leading to a traditional Japanese tearoom. This restaurant’s entire environment will reflect the refined and conscious Japanese way of living, from its interior design to its carefully considered menu.

Award-winning chefs and husband and wife team, Tamas Naszai and Tomoko Hasegawa, have paired up with the renowned Saga Japanese Restaurant Group to bring you an intimate 10-seater restaurant.

Their Omakase counter will feature sushi using locally sourced fish, tender charcoal-cooked meat and a range of pickled and preserved vegetables sourced from the Namayasai farm in East Sussex. Diners can complement their meals with a glass of wine or treat themselves to a taste of a limited-edition Sake.

Roji is set to open Spring 2022 and will be located at 56b South Molton Street, London W1K 5SH.
