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

Pali Hill

Pali Hill has opened in London's Soho at the site formerly home to Gaylord, the long-standing Indian restaurant, which closed in 2019 after 53 years of operation.

It is the first UK opening for Azure Hospitality, which is based in New Delhi and runs several restaurants across India. The Mortimer Street venue was set to launch earlier this year before lockdown forced a change of plans in March.

Pali Hill's 60-cover ground-floor restaurant, named after an old Mumbai neighbourhood, offers seasonal sharing plates inspired by different regional Indian cuisines. Many dishes are cooked on a large grill, and the menu also features gluten-free flatbreads, chaats, fried fish and slow-cooked meat.

Beneath the restaurant is a 40-cover basement bar, named Bandra Bhai, which is accessed through a hidden doorway. Bar manager Luke Ridge, formerly of the Ivy Club and Dandelyan, has designed a cocktail list inspired by well-known Indian figures.

Opened 12 October
