All the restaurant and hotel openings from this week's issue.

Feast Bar & Kitchen

The 5,000 sq ft drinking and dining space features sharing tables and communal seating for up to 300 diners. The concept will offer a line-up of London's independent eateries and street food stalls, rotating every six months. The first residents are Del 74, serving tacos and Mexican cuisine, and Netil Market stars Morty & Bob offering comfort food such as grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers.

Diners order and pay for food at kiosks in the restaurant, and their order is delivered to their table. Feast also has a takeaway seating area. The venue is designed with a contemporary interior of greenery, granite and timber, and will have an additional 157 outdoor seats in the summer months. The space will be open Monday to Friday, 12pm until late. Tables for groups of four or more are available to book.
