Can't afford a weekend getaway to Istanbul? Panic not – Yosma is bringing the best bits of the city's eating culture to us. Based on a meyhane – an Anatolian tavern – there'll be an open mangal grill doing whole marinated fish, octopus and lamb in many forms. Not to mention a dreamy cold meze selection. Raki will play a big part in the vibe – yes that same Turkish aperitif you still have in your fridge from Kalkan 2013 – but it gets a swish makeover in the raki lounge, with recipes concocted by Matt 'Talented Mr. Fox' Whiley. Trust us, we'll be down there getting freekeh as soon it's open.
Soft launch: 50 percent off food now until Sunday September 11

Once a takeaway-only spot, Tootoomoo will now serve its fun Asian tapas to Islington diners. Based on the ‘shophouses’ of Vietnam and Malaysia, all dishes are street-food-inspired – think shichimi squid, beef rendang and Szechuan chilli with tofu. Wash it down with a few of their flavoured caipirinhas (lychee, mango or pineapple) and you'll be tootoomooing all the way down Upper Street.
