The end of the working week is in sight, so you’ll need some fun activities to keep your busy this weekend. Plan your weekend diary with our pick of places to eat and drink around the capital. Check out our picks below and book a table with SquareMeal today.
Where to dine
Sumosan Twiga, Knightsbridge
What: At this glamorous spot, you can pick from a selection of either Japanese or Italian dishes. It’s now serving lunch and when we popped down recently to try it out, we enjoyed the likes of ‘billionaire’ sushi rolls topped with melt-in-the-mouth Wagyu beef and truffle, alongside rich and indulgent tiramisu.
When: Lunch served daily 12N-3pm
Where: 165 Sloane Street, SW1X 9QB
How much: Billionaire rolls £29
Where to get festive
J Sheekey, Covent Garden
What: J Sheekey is well and truly getting in the holiday spirit by dedicating every Sunday up until Christmas to festive fun. This week, two real life ‘little donkeys’ Tinsel and Chestnut will be joining diners – a pretty clever way to entertain the family on a Sunday afternoon if you ask us.
Where: 28-32 St Martin's Court, WC2N 4AL
How much: Mains from £15
Where to brunch
What: If you fancy brunch in the City, the team at Vinoteca is serving up seasonal dishes including leek, ricotta and pine nut filo pie, and poached Norfolk kipper with new potatoes, lemon and parsley butter. For traditional brunchers, there’s French toast and English muffin with ham, poached egg and hollandaise sauce.
When: Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm
Where: 21 Bloomberg Arcade, EC4N 8AR
How much: Dishes from £6
Where to drink
What: To get into the Christmas spirit, take a trip to rooftop bar Aviary where you can enjoy a Hot Chocolate Rum, which comes topped with two toasted marshmallows – head outside to the heated terrace (which boasts killer views) and you’ll feel like you’re on a camping trip…opposite skyscrapers.
When: Saturday until midnight, Sunday until 11pm
Where: 22-25 Finsbury Square, EC2A 1DX
How much: £13.50
