Memsaab (7 The Boulevard, Chelsea SW6) offers a wide variety of dishes with classic recipes such as Old Favourite Chicken Tikka Masala as well as more contemporary recipes reflecting newer food trends in India including Chettinad quails and Quilon seabass.

An 120-cover brasserie and bar has opened above the River Thames on the second floor of the Oxo Tower Wharf on London’s South Bank. With colourful, contemporary décor, Tamesa@oxo (Barge House Street, SE1) is open all day. The brasserie menu consists of both contemporary and classic dishes by head chef David Schofield, with set menus starting at £12 at lunch and for pre-theatre. There is a 75 bin wine list and 15 wines are offered by the glass.

Arbutus (63 Frith Street, W1D 3JW) is the first restaurant for Anthony Demetre and Will Smith, formerly of Putney Bridge Restaurant. This venue, in Soho, is a 60 seat restaurant with a small bar area and the menu features highly seasonal and indigenous ingredients as well as some ‘forgotten’ dishes such as pied-pacquets and matelote of eel.
