Simon Rogan's Roganic named best new restaurant by Square Meal

Simon Rogan's two-year pop-up restaurant Roganic has been named the best new eaterie in London by Square Meal.

The first venture in the capital by Rogan, who also runs the Michelin-starred L'Enclume in Cartmel in the Lake District, Roganic beat stiff competition to win the award, including Jason Atherton's Pollen Street Social and Wolfgang Puck's Cut.

Square Meal editor Ben McCormack praised the restaurant for its "endless innovation and impeccable ingredients", served in a friendly environment. "This is a fine-dining restaurant without the formal trappings of fine dining," he said.

Roganic head chef Ben Spalding added: "It will have nothing but a positive effect on business, and I'm really humbled."

Roganic serves a six- or 10-course tasting menu, with a fierce loyalty to the best seasonal, British produce available.
