What they say:

The five-course tasting menu at The Frog (£40) will feature fresh produce sourced from the nearby Spitalfields and Smithfield Markets. Portobello Gin have created a bespoke offering, Brewdog are behind the beers and there’s to be plenty of homemade Kombucha tea and original cocktails if you’re here to whet the whistle. The restaurant will offer a relaxed place to dine with an emphasis on letting local creatives thrive; promising to allow art students, up-and-coming DJs, wine-makers and guest chefs to make their mark.

What we say:

His hotel restaurant at St. Ermin’s hotel won three AA Rosettes in its first year, he made it through to the final of Masterchef: The Professionals and he’s the current Scottish Chef of the Year, so when Adam Handling launches something new, foodies around town take notice. Set to bring affordable fare with a “lightly theatrical touch” to this top dining neighbourhood, The Frog should also offer an insight into the string of new restaurants Handling is planning to open over the next five years.
