Sune promises relaxed brunches and cosy, candle-lit dinners

It’s a fine time for fine dining around the world this November as some exciting new restaurants open in London, Tokyo, New York, Singapore and more. Chefs Mauro Colagreco, Mads Refslund, Josh Niland and Stuart Ralson take different directions – from wood-fired ovens and foraged ingredients to sustainable seafood – to get to their own vision of luxury. Other openings are more down-to-earth: Sune’s cosy canal-side kitchen in London begins service in the same month as Paris’s Grand Mazarin opens the doors for its Eastern European-inspired dining room. Read on for the best new restaurants this month.

New restaurants to visit around the world in November 2023


London, UK

A new restaurant on Broadway Market promises relaxed brunches and cosy, candle-lit dinners by three of London’s most experienced hosts: sommelier Honey Spencer, manager Charlie Sims and chef Michael Robins. Expect great things from Spencer’s wine list, which will feature the best natural wines as well as more conventional bottles that are in demand, while Robins and colleagues bring clever touches to casual dining: caesar salad with smoked eel, za’atar lamb ribs and Hen of the Woods mushroom with Taleggio. If you’re nearby on a dry, sunny day, stop in for fresh pagnotta and coffee at a canalside seat at the back.

Josh Niland


Part of the new Edition Hotel’s opening, Josh Niland is bringing his passion for sustainable seafood to Singapore this winter. Niland’s new spot, his first outside of Australia, is one of several dining and bar venues at the 200-room, pool-topped hotel off Orchard Road. Guests will be served fish cut to order – rib on the bone, crown roasts, chops and cutlets – safe in the knowledge that the restaurant operates on ‘circular’ principles to minimise waste.

London, UK

London’s Aussie stalwart Caravan is now on its seventh venue in the capital and its menu is still one of the hardest to beat. As well as coffee, brunch, pizza and all-day plates, there’s also a wine list with an affordable mix of Old and New World bottles, and a well-crafted cocktail list that keeps up with the trends. This new Drury Lane venue is housed in a converted, listed grain store with plenty of natural light – and a cosy bar beneath – that offers a sweet escape from the ever-increasing Christmas crowds outside.

Edinburgh, UK

For fine diners travelling through Scotland this autumn and winter, a night at Lyla is unmissable. After an starting with an apéritif, snacks and views over the skyline, guests move downstairs for a 10-course tasting menu built around sustainably-sourced Scottish seafood served with Japanese touches: koji, sake, koshu, and chawanmushi custard. This Georgian terrace restaurant with clear city views, its dining room with an open kitchen, bring a new elegance to the city’s dining scene.

New York, US

From the imagination of Mads Refslund, a Noma co-founder, comes Ilis, a restaurant in the Greenpoint district of Brooklyn that celebrates seasonal, sustainable North American dishes cooked over wood fires. Like Noma, the menu capitalises on fresh and foraged ingredients – blueberries, clam, eel – with bison and venison dishes bulking up the later courses of its weeknight tasting menu. An open central kitchen is the focal point of the restaurant and the chefs serve the food directly to diners.

Paris, France

Named after the Yiddish for ‘grandma’, Boubalé pays tribute to the East European dishes chef Assaf Granit learned from his own. Ashkenazi dishes like matza ball soup get a luxury revamp as lobster, monkfish, mussels and shrimp teem in broth served from a teapot while classics like gravlax are served with elegant pickles, dill and fried capers. At the heart of Paris’s Grand Mazarin, the decor is maximalist with ikat sofas, wallpaper, and hand-turned wooden chairs nodding back to the dining rooms these dishes came from.

Tokyo, Japan

Named after the turning of the seasons, Mauro Colagreco’s new restaurant brings the flair from the chef’s Argentinian background to an airy spot in Otemachi. Japanese dishes such as sea urchin share a menu with Mediterranean tapas (a nod back to his work at Mirazur) and South American desserts. It’s perfect down to the details: even the wine list is printed in handmade washi paper made with grape leaves and skins.
