The latest hospitality venues to open their doors across the UK in November 2023
From the best new restaurants to the buzziest new hotels, there are plenty of new openings happening this month.
Bone Daddies' Leicester Square site is one of the latest restaurants to open up in London, with two floors of pimped-up ramen and Japanese-inspired sides with a western twist. As a special welcome, the restaurant has introduced an exclusive ramen special that echoes the rising popular streetfood of the area – Korean hot dogs. This one is coated in crunchy ramen, drizzled with sweet mustard and filled with comforting mashed potato and cheese.
The Caterer team headed down for a bite, and saw how the brand has taken a narrow building next to the station and turned it into a neon-lit, Tokyo-style, swanky little space, with drinks stations on both floors and a dumbwaiter to ferry food between the two. The K-dog ramen was an innovative twist on a trendy dish, showing how a special menu item can hit notes of both exciting buzz and local flavours.
As for the rest of the country, excitingly Leeds is getting its own Flat Iron, dishing up the classic steaks in the city. Also Leeds will see a new restaurant Blue Pavilion, that showcases regional dishes from across China.
