Exact details about the opening are limited but expect this new restaurant to open a little later in 2019.

This chain has several restaurants in London and Edinburgh already, but it will be expanding by opening its first site in Manchester later this month. The restaurant will follow the others by paying homage to the Irani cafes of Bombay and will serve similar menus to them. So, expect to see its famous bacon naan rolls.

The second new restaurant will open at Canary Wharf and the third and biggest one of all will open at Tower Bridge (right near The National Student HQ, no less.)

Customers will be able to click and collect at the deli during the week while on weekends the venue will play host to live acoustic music, brunch platters and cocktail trolleys. Yoga classes will also be hosted here and with a studio that can hold up to 30 people, this is something that is not to be missed. Make sure to book in for the mindfulness and meditation workshops as well.

This new Italian restaurant has been launched by Aktar Islam, who not too long ago launched his upmarket Indian restaurant in Birmingham. It boasts a wood fired oven and a concise menu for customers. With two different pastas being made fresh every day and with a huge amount of flavour in every dish, this looks to be a another hit for Aktar.

7. Pensons, Herefordshire

Pensons is a new rural restaurant and the brainchild of chef Lee Westcott and Peta Darnley. The menu is inspired by the countryside and fresh local produce. Housed in the newly restored farm buildings on the Netherwood Estate that go back centuries and with a guest house located on site, this restaurant promises a cool and calm atmosphere.

This Australian and New Zealand inspired restaurant will serve dishes such as acai bowls, corn fritters and everyone's favourite, avocado on toast. The new site will stay open into the evenings and host pop up supper clubs and kitchen takeovers. A more contemporary bar, it's hoped this new opening will add even more life to the already busy streets around Deansgate.
