LONDON EATERIES – Just Opened unveil 2015 Awards
The London restaurant, bar, lifestyle and culture openings experts publish their Overall Top 10 Openings 2015
- Lists honours a wide variety of new openings, from pioneering pop-ups to fine dining and fun-casual
- 2015 set a trend for the pop-up gone permanent as Shackfuyu and Dinerama score highly
- 2015 will be remembered as a key year for comfort food in the capital
Just Opened London unveiled the winners of their second annual awards this morning, celebrating the best of London openings in 2015.
The year saw comfort food reign, with openings such as Chick ‘n’ Sours, Shackfuyu and Foxlow getting mentions. Dinerama and Shackfuyu spearheaded a confident move in hospitality from the pop-up to the ‘permanent’: Dinerama gained a glass roof for winter and Shackfuyu – the year’s strongest pop-up – has reopened for good.
Those scoring highest in Just Opened’s End of Year Awards were The Ivy, Shackfuyu, Granger & Co King’s Cross, Phonox, Cahoots, Original Sin and overall winner, Dinerama.
Just Opened editor Adam Bloodworth said: “Just Opened London have taken everything into account to pick this year’s winners, including the obvious things like quality of food and drink; but also innovation; fun; novel takes on hospitality; trailblazing pop-ups; interior design feats and fresh fusion food and themed openings.
This is not simply a list of great-tasting food and drink – these are the openings we’ll take with us into 2016 as the best and most memorable, from another vintage year of openings.
We’re delighted to see comfort food reign! And congratulations to our overall winner, Dinerama, who challenged the notions of pop-up street food in 2015.”
