One Lawn Terrace (0171 379 0724) reopens on Tuesday following a refurbishment by owners of London's Bank restaurant, BGR, who recently took it over the Blackheath eaterie. The interior will now be modern and minimalist. The menu has also been overhauled with an emphasis on fish dishes, such as blue-fin tuna marinated in citric juices.
Cafe Boheme (01865 245 858) has become the latest place to be seen in Oxford. A sister to the eponymous restaurant in London's Soho, the Oxford High Street brasserie similarly offers a laid-back atmosphere - jazz is played and snackers are as welcome from morning till night as those having a full-blown meal.
