If you're looking for a bit of Parisian glamour, then look no further than Brasserie Blanc in Covent Garden's Opera Terrace. Little B is its opulent and intimate private bar offering a separate alternative that can accommodate up to 25 people for drinks or 15 for dinner. The cocktail list is designed by the Cocktail Club's JJ Goodman and James Hopkins, winners of the 2009 BBC2 series The Restaurant. You'll also find here what is possibly London's largest selection of absinthe.

Fresh and healthy foods are on the menu at Bibigo Bar & Dining, which is owned by Korea's biggest food company, CJ. With the aim of bringing the country's national food to the world, its first European flagship restaurant will open on September 1. It offers a menu created by Leo Kang, one of the judges for Masterchef Korea. Kang previously worked in London at Zuma and La Tante Claire, as well as with Gordon Ramsay in both London and Dubai. On the menu is assemble-to-order bi bim bap, Korea's national dish, alongside grills such as the traditional beef bulgogi and other delicacies. The setting is relaxed and contemporary with 86 covers spread over two floors.

It's all happening in September for London openings. Chicken Shop is a new public restaurant venture from Soho House Group that will be dedicated to serving the finest rotisserie chicken, utilising a brand new in-house cooking method. Chicken will be the only main course available, served quartered, halved or whole. Simple sides will be triple-cooked chips, creamy coleslaw, corn on the cob and salad. Design is taken from 1950s US general stores as an intimate space with room for 40 diners. The site will also house a Pizza East restaurant.


Draft House Charlotte

43 Goodge Street, London W1T 1TA

Finest cask and keg beers, accompanied by owner Charlie McVeigh's menu of hearty pub grub is what's on offer at the fifth Draft House to open in London. The lunch and dinner menu of established Draft House classics, such as Foot-Long Scratchings, the mighty Meat Bomb and hamburger specials. The Yolk, the Smoke and the Poke will grace the menu, plus it's also open for breakfast. Beers include "everyday bottles" and "extreme bottles", which includes the likes of Delirium Tremens (8.5% abv; £6.95) and Yeti Imperial Stout (9.6% abv; £9.75). Alas, because the venue is "very, very" small it does not take reservations.
