Why not treat yourself and spend the weekend feasting in the sophisticated environment of a Michelin star restaurant. We’ve rounded up the best ones for you.
The first Indian restaurant in London to be awarded with a star, Tamarind serves state of the art cuisine in small, delicate dishes that explode with flavour and spices. The six course tasting menu means you can have all the taste variation of a massive curry spread but in a refined, sophisticated structure.
White, bright and spacious, Lyle’s is about as far a cry from Halloween as you can get. The Shoreditch restaurant is dedicated to serving traditional, seasonal British food in a set menu, guaranteeing straight forward but impeccably prepared meals. The food noticeably takes the palate on a tour of Great Britain.
Barrafina now has three incredible sites and they just get better and better. The Covent Garden restaurant is our favourite; treat yourself to arguably the best tapas in London with a sensational wine list to match. We love the cool minimalist décor and open plan, buzzing ambience of this chic eatery.
The vibe at Gymkhana is one of the most unique in London. At the forefront of the thematic mash-up trend, the Mayfair restaurant combines local British produce, such as game, with traditional Indian cooking, using a tandoor oven and sigri charcoal grill. The classy establishment also boasts its own Punch house.
The stylish Brasserie Chavot serves the most incredible French cuisine in the heart of Mayfair. Expect fresh, light seafood (the signature dish is deep fried soft-shell crab, officially the dish of dreams) and perfectly seasoned meat plates from the one and only Eric Chavot.
