What they say:
The latest addition to the Bloomsbury dining scene, Neptune is set to be a British-led restaurant which will take significant influence from Australian an Californian cooking. Headed up by chef Brett Redman and former stylist Margaret Crow, who are the team responsible for Hackney gastropub, The Richmond, the restaurant will feature an oyster and shellfish bar, as well as a selection of classic cocktails with a seasonal twist.
What we say:
Based in the forthcoming Principal Hotel - formerly the Hotel Russell - this new London restaurant aims to reignite the salon atmosphere of old Bloomsbury. With raw fish bar and classic cocktails, Neptune is intended to be high-end dining with a neighbourhood vibe. While full details of the menu are still being kept under wraps, the food will be seasonal British cuisine with influences from California and chef and owner Brett Redman's native Australia.
