Cocktails at Bone Daddies

Bar & Restaurant Openings

The Little Yellow Door, an eclectic pop-up bar based on a fictional flatshare between friends from all walks of life, opens on Wednesday 29 October in (yes, you guessed it) Notting Hill. It promises innovative cocktails and delicious dinner parties on Fridays by partner, The Wandering Chef. The dinner menu will change on a quarterly basis and be influenced by the nationality of the latest flatmate to move into The Little Yellow Door.

This November sees the re-opening of Kensington’s Indian restaurant Zaika with Tamarind Collection, the group behind the Michelin-starred Tamarind restaurant, taking the reins.

With a new look and a new team that boasts Mumbai-born Sanjay Gour as executive chef, we can look forward to a menu inspired by the techniques and flavours of northern India’s Awadhi cuisine which is traditionally influenced by the Middle East and uses cooking methods resembling European techniques. Gour previously cooked in Dubai at Verre, under Jason Atherton, before moving to Maze London, the Savoy Grill and Murano, working under Angela Hartnett.

The ramen craze continues… In early November, Ross Shonhan, of Bone Daddies and Flesh & Buns, is opening his third restaurant in Kensington Whole Foods Market. With the menu featuring Bone Daddies ramen favourites, Flesh & Buns’ signature buns, and gyoza – a first for Bone Daddies – with fillings such as chicken and prawn and pork and truffle, alongside snacks such as chashu pork, jalapeño and cheese croquettes, the restaurant will also offer a full bar and cocktail menu.
