Say “hello” to St Martins Lane Kitchen (opens 1 March)
Bringing vibrant and colourful flavours to the heart of Covent Garden for the past 20 years, Asia de Cuba will be closing its doors on 28 February.

One thing’s for sure, you can anticipate a pancake this Shrove Tuesday. With live crêpe stations at both Sanderson and St Martins Lane, enjoy the classic flavour combinations in celebration of one of the best days of the year.
The live crêpe station at St Martins Lane will be situated just outside St Martin’s Lane Kitchen. All crêpes are priced at £4 with the choice between Nutella & Rum Soaked Banana, White Chocolate, Strawberry & Coconut Flakes, and the classic Sugar and Lemon crêpe. There will also be a selection of toppings available to add on for £1.
Over at Sanderson, you can dig into a classic Sugar and Lemon crêpe for £8 over lunch or dinner… or both. Fancy something a little different? For £10, why not try our exclusive Blueberry Stack cocktail. Served in a mini martini glass with a mini pancake on the side, you’ll be livin’ the American dream.

The Restaurant at Sanderson X Felicity Spector - Priced at £8, Felicity's favourite flavours have been combined in a delicious pistachio infused rhubarb tart, delicately paired with a gooey rose meringue, crushed rhubarb and a scoop of cardamom ice cream. Want to know the best part? You can eat this guilt free as all of the proceeds will be going to charity.
