Every London restaurant opening this week

This week, Adam Handling unveils his latest restaurant in Chelsea, and a sausage-heavy eatery comes to Islington. Read below to get all the details, including the opening date and more.

Adam Handling Chelsea, Chelsea

When: Opens 28 February
What:
Following his appointment as executive chef of the Belmond Cadogan in 2018, Adam Handling is now launching a restaurant at the hotel. He’s appointed fellow chef Adam Simmonds (who previously ran Adam Simmonds at Danesfield House) to oversee the day-to-day running of the restaurant, which will serve up tasting menus and an à la carte featuring some of Handling’s signature dishes.
Where:
21 Pont Street, Chelsea, SW1X 0AZ

X-Upper, Islington

When: Opens 25 February
What:
This gourmet sausage restaurant finds its home on Islington’s Upper Street (replacing a branch of Jamon Jamon), and hopes to knock the ubiquitous burger off its top spot as London’s favourite junk-food-gone-gourmet dish. X-Upper offers six varieties of sausage, with options including The Italian Romagna: an Italian chicken and pork sausage with a herby green sauce and yellow pepper salsa.
Where:
88 Upper Street, N1 0NP
