The Young Turks, a collective of three chefs, have taken up residency at The Ten Bells pub in Shoreditch.
The Young Turks are the clever guys behind events like the pop-up ocakbasi night at Frank’s Campari Bar which sold out in just minutes as well as previously working at top restaurants including St John Bread & Wine, Noma in Copenhagen and New York’s Momofuku.
The chefs will be staying at The Ten Bells for three months where they'll be serving up four course meals with a side of Hendrick's cocktails. The reservations line is now open taking bookings until the end of November. Click here for more information.
If themed dining is your type of thing then read on because a new Imperial dining experienced has opened in London.

Gordon Ramsey's latest venture, Bread Street Kitchen (BSK) is now open and taking bookings.
Housed in One New Change and looking much like an up-market East London cafe with checkered floors and brown walls BSK is a relaxed option for diners looking for drinks or food.
'At the heart of the Bread Street Kitchen offering is an informal approach to dining – guests can meet, eat and drink from early morning until late at night. Underpinned by great service and a menu that includes dishes from a raw bar, a wood-burning oven and from the lively open kitchen, the aim is to deliver a great experience to those that visit at whatever time they choose.'
To kick off their 25th birthday celebrations 101 bartenders at T.G.I. Friday's got together to break a Guinness World Record.
The bartenders broke the record for the Most People Simultaneously Cocktail Fliaring at once. The whole thing lasted for over 2 minutes without a single bottle or glass dropped or without those taking part falling out of sync.
It makes quite a lot of sense that the bartenders would be pretty good at something like this, they trained Tom Cruise to do all the tricks he pulled out in his film Cocktail.
Here's a video of the world record taking place although we suggest that you probably don't try this at home, especially not if you value your carpets.
