Sushi bingeing. The final frontier. The unquestionably orgasmic delight of popping dollop after dollop of a food of an unrelentingly elegant design; low in fat, high in umami, arguably, an invention born of perfection. Some say the combination of raw fish
At the half way mark of 2010, we have witnessed a number of new restaurant openings in London which has brought a sleuth of choice to the discerning diner. Yet, many more are anticipated to open as we hurl toward the second half of the year. I went to some of the new opens and thought it was fitting to compile a list about what’s coming and what’s already here. Fellow London Eaters, For what it’s worth, I think Capello should stay on, he is one of the World’s best afterall, if he can’t get the job done, then who else? So there are more convincing choices in the London dining scene this year, than ever before now. Even though new restaurants open all the time, the last few months has felt abit like an extended blockbuster extravaganza. Week after week, wave after wave of gushing reviews. I’m not sure if it is a step up in frequency or that the talent pool has been upped, or merely that media (both new and old) are simply covering more ground.

The LondonEater Newsletter, Vol 2, Issue 2 Did you watch the election last night? Six days to the polls. Be sure to vote. In other news, A Danish restaurant was named the best in the world, and LondonEater finally made the pilgrimage to Bray. On Monday, the list of the best fifty restaurants in the world was revised for 2010. Shock and awe pulsated throughout across the foodie community, as a reshuffling of the top rankings gripped the twitterati. There were whispers that El Bulli was going to be toppled after a four year reign and it finally happened. The best restaurant in the world is now …drumroll… Noma. A two Michelin starred restaurant based in Copenhagen, headed by 32 year old René Redzepi and whose menu is completely centred around Nordic produce. El Bulli drops to second place and the Fat Duck in third. The votes were decided by an international cast comprised of 800 of the most important critics and chefs, organised into 26 regions around the world. Anyway, the UK only had three entrants in the top 50 list: The Fat Duck (3), St John (29) and Hibiscus (49). Gordon Ramsay is no longer in the running and I am so very glad to see both SNobu
