Half price Fried Chicken AT BIRD!

To celebrate the opening of their new branch in Camden, Bird are giving all fried chicken fans 50% off the food bill in the new Camden branch between 21st – 24th January. This will be a first-come, first served type situation so get down there early and don’t be shy! If you need any more incentives, remember that this is currently the only place in London where you can try and fit an entire Bird fried chicken and waffle burger in your gob.

Dip & Flip opens in Tooting!

Dip & Flip opened their third branch in Tooting on Friday 15th January. If you still haven’t heard of these guys, they serve delicious cheeseburgers topped with slices of roast beef dipped in gravy… with an additional side of dipping gravy. Unfortunately Dip & Flip only have locations in south-west London, but this sounds so freakin’ delicious it’ll be well worth the trip if you live further away. Go! Go now!!

Hawksmoor to open new restaurant in New York!

As well as celebrating their 10 year anniversary, Hawksmoor announced they would be taking the much-beloved British steakhouse to the traditional home of great steak, New York City. AND to the new World Trade Centre no less. Very fancy! The new restaurant is not set to open until the end of 2017 but it’s nice to know there will be a little slice of England somewhere in the big apple if you ever get homesick and you find your Tamworth Belly Rib levels are dangerously low….

In news that is both happy and sad, barbecue behemoths Pitt Cue Co. announced they would be closing the doors of their Soho branch on 18th January – booo! BUT they will be re-opening a new, bigger branch in East London sometime in mid-February – yaaay! Rumours are the new venue may even take reservations?! Double yay!! For East-London folk like me who hate standing out in the cold this is a very exciting turn of events.
