A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors

Ten Trinity Square

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has opened its newest hotel within the City of London's Ten Trinity Square building. Overlooking the Tower of London, the Grade II-listed property formerly housed the Port of London Authority, was originally designed by architect Sir Edwin Cooper and was opened in 1922 by then-prime minister David Lloyd George. Architect Aukett Swanke has overseen the building's refurbishment.

The hotel has two restaurants: La Dame de Pic, overseen by Anne-Sophie Pic, the only female French chef to be awarded three Michelin stars; and an Asian fusion restaurant. La Dame de Pic showcases Pic's creative French cuisine in a classic English environment and is her first restaurant in the UK. The Asian fusion restaurant specialises in Chinese and Japanese dishes, with the tea service a focal point.

The property also accommodates 41 private residences and a spa.
