Want to take your date to one of London’s new eateries?

By Aneeka Patel

Do you need to take someone you like on a date tonight or maybe this weekend? You’ve maybe suggested grabbing a bite to eat for lunch or dinner, but where can you go that will make a really great impression, be buzzy but not too noisy so you can hear what they are saying? We’ve all been there!

The first thing you should ALWAYS do is to ask the other person what kind of food they really like, or the restaurants they have either really liked or would like to check out. And by the same token, places they really don’t like!

Well, remember that London really is your oyster! There are fantastic restaurants popping up all the time all over London and I’ve selected 5 cool-sounding, new eateries for you to consider. The team at Project 143 is armed with information about all the great, new places to go on dates so our members can simply go and enjoy their dates there. It couldn’t be easier!

  1. Palomar

In a nutshell: Ideal for dining à deux – you can really get up close and personal at the counter with your date.

Where is it? 34 Rupert Street, London, W1D 6DN

Why should you care? Fantastic modern-Israeli food, great dance music and a warm family atmosphere at the West End’s most unlikely bar-restaurant of the moment.

  1. Poppies

In a nutshell: Fish and chips in Soho

Where is it? 55-59 Old Compton Street, London W1T 1DB

Why should you care? Best known for their Spitalfields restaurant. Poppies are making the leap into Soho. Expect a traditional fish and chips restaurant and maybe the odd jellied eel too

  1. Squirrel

In a nutshell: Healthy food in Kensington

Where is it? 11 Harrington Road, South Kensington, London SW7 3ES

Why should you care? This latest healthy food restaurant is a big departure from the people who also run Bunga Bunga and Mr Foggs. Expect plenty of healthy food in bowls – and you’ll be eating it in a treehouse too, I’m serious. This is a super casual place but you are less than a 10 minute walk to galleries like the V&A and the Natural History Museum or you can pop over to Harvey Nicks and Harrods, so plenty at your disposal.

  1. Bao Fitzrovia

In a nutshell: Bao v2

Where is it? 31 Windmill St London W1T 2JN

Why should you care? This is the second restaurant from the people behind the hugely successful Bao in Soho. Expect the usual bao buns but with many small and sharing dishes that are new to this branch. Remember, there are no reservations at this place you just drop in and enjoy THE craze of 2016, bao buns. The soft, firm Taiwanese steamed sensations show no signs of losing pace in the capital. Experience them with your date and see what the fuss is all about!

  1. Switch House Restaurant at Tate Modern

In a nutshell: Gallery restaurant with a view- super romantic and you can always check out the art before or after you’ve eaten lunch or dinner.

Where is it? Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

Why should you care? There’s a big new gallery building attached to Tate Modern, the 10 storey Switch House, and this brings a brand new bar and restaurant to the South Bank. The Tate will continue to champion small producers, something it’s well known for doing. So Rare Breed Beef and Swaledale Lamb comes from the Yorskhire Dales, Emmetts of Suffolk is producing home-cured hams, fish comes from day boats in Cornwall from the Stevens & Sons fisheries, and there are free-range Yorkshire Wold chickens have been sourced for the rotisserie. Yummy! And there really is something for everyone on the menu selections.

Happy dating!
