Cave Things, a shop selling playful and unusual bits that have been designed, drawn, written or recorded by Nick Cave, is popping up at Dover Street Market for a limited time this spring. You’ll be able to shop the range of milk jugs, art prints, pencils, bowls, t-shirts, charms and more – many of which have a slightly cheerier look than you might expect from a Nick Cave design – throughout March and April, as well as get your hands on the Milk Carton tee, made exclusively for DSM. This is the first time Cave Things has appeared as an IRL shop; Cave Fans, keep your fingers crossed that it’s not the last.


4 Compton Ave, London N1 2XD

Islington’s beloved The Compton Arms (which managed to survive a licence review last year) is welcoming a new kitchen residency, taking over from Reece Moore’s Belly. Tiella, run by chef Dara Klein (who’s cooked at Brawn, Trullo and most recently, Sager + Wilde), is all about traditional, rustic Italian food, including the eponymous Puglian dish tiella, made with layers of rice, vegetables, mussels, cacio cavallo & pecorino. The menu will also feature the likes of sagne ‘ncannulate pasta with eight-hour tomato sauce, sage & anchovy fritti, braised hoggett shoulder with polenta & vignole, asparagus with mozzarella & saffron sauce, and bay panna cotta with Fernet Branca & blueberries.

To mark the premiere of the short film Matar, Choose Love is teaming up with WaterBear to open The Lab pop-up. The film, created by the same team behind The Swimmers, explores the UK’s asylum policies and the discrimination that people in the system face. The pop-up will play host to film screenings, live podcast recordings, and a photography exhibition, and you’ll also be able to purchase items from the Choose Love shop and oppose the refugee ban bill by accessing pre-written letters to send to your local MP.

Greek kitchen esti (a play on ‘estiatorio’, the Greek word for restaurant) is taking up residency inside TT Liquor in Shoreditch. With esti, founder Kostas Vais is blending Greek dining with Australian hospitality – with some British produce and ingredients from Down Under thrown in – where the menu is heavily influenced by the cooking of his mother and grandmother. It’s one of those menus where you’ll want everything but don’t miss the pork souvlaki with its tender meat and tzatziki in a soft pita (not like the carboardy ones you get on the supermarkets); the white tarama livened with zhoug and served with impossibly crispy potato skins for dipping; the smoked aubergine with tahini and brown butter giving nuttiness; and the superb braised octopus, cooked down with Aussie bush tomato and orzo. And instead of the traditional chips, esti is doing big slices of fried potatoes, with plenty of surface area for aleppo pepper and manouri cheese to cling to. If you’ve ever had galaktoboureko, the classic Greek custard dessert, before, you’ve got to try this one – it’s served hot so you get extra crispy filo with soft, rich custard underneath, it’s a gamechanger. esti will be in residence at TT Liquor from Weds – Sun, with terrace cookouts on Sundays, and there are already plans to move somewhere permanent come the autumn.

NYC natives and pop-up experts Ha’s Đặc Biệt are the latest to take up residency in the kitchen at Shoreditch wine bar Oranj. Created by couple Anthony Ha and Sadie Mae Burns, Ha’s Đặc Biệt is a residency-based Vietnamese concept that began with the pair serving their food from a small pushcart at Manhattan’s outdoor markets and the gardens of Brooklyn’s bars. They made a name for themselves as they went and have since been travelling the world, bringing their menus to an international audience. Most recently, they were in Paris for three months, cooking at Le 6 Paul Bert, and now they’re coming to London to spend a whole month at Oranj. Expect a cuisine described as “Vietnamese bistro” and, as always, plenty of natural wine.

In honour of the final Loewe collab with Studio Ghibli – this collection is based on Howl’s Moving Castle – the brand has got French culinary studio Balbosté to take over Dolly’s Cafe in Selfridges and turn it into Calcifer’s Kitchen (he’s the little fire demon who cooks in the movie FYI). You’ll be able to try breakfast and aperitivo menus based on scenes from the film, but the afternoon tea is the real showstopper – it includes a lobster-filled charcoal chou Fire bun, Broomstick with sauce in a hat, Calcifer & Loewe macarons, verbena jelly Cloud terrine, and apricot & marzipan-filled Flower pie.
