FOOD NEWS IN KENSINGTON & CHELSEA
Eat around the world in Kensington and Chelsea this month as new restaurant openings encompass British and Mediterranean cuisines and Japanese-Peruvian fusion food
Peruvian and Japanese cuisine at UNI
Fans of top-notch Japanese-Peruvian fusion food should hasten to UNI to check out one of the city’s most entertaining openings. It offers a mixture of old favourites like black cod and Wagyu beef with some divine house specialties like lobster ceviche and rock shrimp tempura – not to mention some deceptively delicious cocktails – this is an absolute must-visit.

Adam Simmonds at Kensington Pavilion
Adam Simmonds made a name for himself at Danesfield House, and was regularly voted one of the UK’s best chefs. Now he’s back (sort of) with a new Kensington opening, Kensington Pavilion, which is going to be a celebration of all things British, from locally sourced meats and cheese to homemade chutneys and pickles. Given his track record, expect greatness.

If you’re in search of a little Mediterranean class, then you won’t be disappointed by the newly reopened and refurbished Toto’s in Knightsbridge. Not only is the food top-notch modern Italian, but the atmosphere – encompassing a garden courtyard and olive trees at the entrance – is so welcoming and inviting that it’s practically like going on a summer holiday.
