New Kids on the Block


London's erstwhile celebrity haunt Le Caprice has been given a new lease of life this month, with a glamorous relaunch on 11 March. Yet owner Jeremy King has decided to rename the restaurant Arlington, dedicated to the Mayfair street that was once Mick Jagger's home from home. Indeed, former regulars of Le Caprice will be in their comfort zones at Arlington – seared scallops, dressed crab and an extensive selection of vintage Champagne sets the tone at this deluxe address. The hype starts now.

Edinburgh's bustling restaurant scene has welcomed another member into its fine-dining ranks – Cardinal is the first solo project of chef/patron Tomás Gormley, co-founder of the Michelin-starred Heron in Leith. So we can expect great things from Cardinal, not least a 13-course tasting menu (only served in the evening), and a shorter, more concise offering for lunch (starting 5 April). Wash it down with a glass – or six – of natural wine, carefully chosen to accompany each dish. Meanwhile, patrons are already raving about Cardinal’s bespoke wood-fired barbecue and exceptional cocktail list.

Three Sheets, Soho

Hipster favourite Three Sheets has been charming barflies and mixology lovers in Dalston since 2016, so it seemed inevitable that owners Max & Noel Venning would head west at some point. Et voilà: Three Sheets Soho opened its doors in March. The new venue will undoubtedly repeat the successful formula of its older sibling, with bespoke cocktails, Blaufränkisch by the glass, and an enticing selection of small plates, including fresh oysters and beef sandwiches.
