Eating Out: Taste of things to come Hot, happening and opening soon
Sunday 04 October 1998
l Planning a special night out? Why not make it Friday 16 October, when more than 100 top restaurants across the UK will be giving a percentage of their takings to the World Food Day Appeal in aid of war and famine victims. Call 0171 242 5665 to find out more.
l The long-awaited reopening of Pierre Koffmann's triple Michelin-starred La Tante Claire (0171 493 5699) - which many foodies regard as the country's finest restaurant - is set to take place in November. The restaurant has moved from Chelsea to a new home in London's Berkeley Hotel, but Koffmann assures us there will be no other changes - he'll still be cooking full time.
l If fish is your thing, you'll be pleased to learn that the owners of London's trendy (and pricey) Bank restaurant (0171 379 9797) are about to launch a chain of more informal (and affordable) cafes, called Fish! Diners. By the end of the year the first will open in London's Borough Market; others are to follow.
