News feed: Find out this year's best winter terraces

by Deborah James

Every week, we round up the newest openings, menus and exciting news from the food world. This week, it's mainly about a bottomless brunch and the coolest winter terrace pop-ups.

New opening: Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack

On 12 December, Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack will open in Soho. The 23-cover restaurant will be opening on Bateman Street and maintain the same principles of its successful big sister, with a new focus on small plates made for sharing. Expect lovely delicacies such as squid toast with ink aioli and wild hayle mussels cooked over embers with parsley hollandaise and charcoal grilled monkfish cheek.

New menu: Weekend brunch at Kensington Place

Created by head chef Ian Waghorn, the menu will feature light and revitalising dishes, with an emphasis on fresh seafood from their on-site fishmongers. You can make it a naughtier affair by adding bottomless Prosecco and Bloody Marys. Or you can go for the healthy option and join in the Vinyasa flow ‘Reshape Morning’ yoga classes before brunch.
