Calling all London socialites: There’s a new must-see restaurant in town


Excellent food? Check. Great atmosphere? Check. Set in one of London’s most hip areas, with renowned chefs and brilliant cocktail makers? You’ve guessed it, check!

A new restaurant in Soho, called Bantof, has a little something for everyone. It is setting out to be a centre for great art, brilliant food, and excellent cocktails.

With Michelin chef Asimakis Chaniotis behind the menu, it should achieve those goals too. A clear ethos of the new place is to create a culture of collaboration and that is reflected in the signature dishes on the menu, which are designed to be enjoyed on sharing plates.

Lovers of great cocktails will also want to make the pilgrimage to Great Windmill Street. That is because its cocktail menu is set to be designed by Jack Sotti’s SuperNacular.

Sotti is a regular on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and known throughout the UK as a man who really knows his mixology.

And since we are calling all socialites, we better mention that this isn’t going to be a dining experience without culture. In fact, Bantof has already released a statement detailing what patrons can expect.

It read: “As well as serving delicious food made from fresh, seasonal ingredients, guests can expect an ever-changing rotation of art exhibitions curated by the restaurant’s team themselves. With shows featuring both upcoming talent and more established names within the creative scene, Bantof provides not only somewhere for people to eat great food but also somewhere to come and experience art in all its forms”.

Unfortunately, unless you are lucky enough to go to one of the preview nights, you will not be able to enjoy Bantof until early September. However, we are sure once it does open its doors that it will be a regular venue on the calendar of many a tasteful Londoner.
