Bread Street Cafe, London
Gordon Ramsay is expanding his Bread Street line of restaurants with the newly opened Bread Street Cafe in Ealing Broadway.

Dominique Ansel Workshop, New York
There's a new bakery in NYC that's causing quite a stir and it comes from none other than Dominique Ansel. It's his first opening in the city for six years and comes off the back of closures in London and LA during the pandemic. The Workshop is being described as his flagship and is a continued celebration of croissants in all forms, with it being the largest section on the menu. Aside from viennoiserie, there are a range of desserts including the hazelnut praline coffee triangle and savouries such as the gougere puffs with comte and mozzarella.

Fireside, Hong Kong
As the name suggests, Fireside is all about open-flame grilling, using a variety of woods and binchotan (Japanese coal). More concerned with allowing the complexity of each dish to shine, the menu doesn't focus on one cuisine type in particular but instead takes elements from Spanish, Japanese and Latin American foods. A highlight is the confit duck with fore-cooked rice, perfumed with aromatic almond wood and served on a sizzling skillet or the Ora King Salmon that is smoked over applewood for three days.

Tapenade, Melbourne
Hailing from the South of France, Laurie Faget and Kevin Chassagne have brought a little piece of Provence to Melbourne. The cafe, which is currently just open for takeaways, offers classics like quiche Lorraine, croque monsieur and a pan bagnat (a Nicoise sandwich). You can also enjoy the speciality, an olive tapenade made using Faget's grandmother's recipe, served with focaccia. The cafe also features a retail boutique section stocking French treats, adding to the experience.
