The group behind The Botanist will bring a new all-day restaurant and bar to White City. The restaurant — part of the long-planned £600m Westfield development running in parallel to the long-planned White City Place regeneration — will be called Maple.

The space is geared towards the photogenic: interiors aside, a “see and be seen” table with raised seats will add a dash of performativity to a meal already theatrical from its open “theatre” kitchen, while a bookable garden terrace offers a metropolitan alternative to the best way to dine al fresco in the city.

Ingredients will be sourced from rare breed farmers and day-boat fishermen to produce not unheard of all-day dining staples: tuna tartare with avocado; beef carpaccio with cheese (Berkswell) and crunch (hazelnuts); “the best burger in town.” A bar menu will offer sliders and wings, obviously, with the former soft-shell crab and the latter maple-glazed; poached chorizo will come with turmeric mayo. Breakfast and brunch will offer granola; sweetcorn fritters; crumpets; fruit plates. It sounds a solid menu: a touch more eclectic than Westfields’ many all-day restaurants that usually focus on a single cuisine, but no less steady. Wheels waiting to be reinvented can breathe easy.

“A carefully curated list of contemporary cocktails” reads as a list of classic cocktails with an extra ingredient: spritzes with grapefuit, a rhubarb sour. With the likes of Homeslice, Patty & Bun, Soho House, Ichiba and Kricket all open or coming soon in the immediate area, joined by struggling Byron, Carluccios and Jamie’s Italian as well as mid-market successes Cabana, Wahaca and Wagamama, Maple is entering a fiercely competitive buzzy neighbourhood.
