There are lots of exciting new restaurants opening in London in 2018. I'm very excited about Sabor opening in Mayfair this month from the ex-Barrafina chef and their former general manager, Nieves Barragan Mohacho and José Etura. Very yummy credentials.
However, it looks like we will have to wait a little longer for Bob Bob Cite to open in the city. This is the sequel to Bob Bob Ricard in Soho with it's legendary "Press for Champagne" buttons installed on every table. Looks like we will have to wait until next quarter for the champagne launch codes. It will be interesting to see how the City crowd respond to pressing such a seductive button.
Meantime, I'm looking forward to Sabor's doors opening.
I had hoped my finger would be hovering over the "Press for Champagne" button at Bob Bob Cité, the long awaited sequel to Bob Bob Ricard, by now but, alas, corks won’t be popping until spring when Leonid Shutov’s "modern British grill" opens on the 8th floor of the Leadenhall Building.
