The London Collection
Bringing you our top picks from the City of London
Been there forever, Champagne by the silver tankard, smoked salmon carved in front of you, oysters galore, amazing fish pie or skate wing with black butter – a real city institution for the past 100 years.
Having had a pop up in the uber exciting Brixton Pop, the team moved earlier this year to their permanent site in Soho. Fantastic modern Indian food with bold flavours - tandoori monkfish is a must try. A small vibrant restaurant where you sit at the bar, with cool service, food that delights and a price point that makes you love London for loving food without breaking the bank. AND definitely a winner for vegetarians too.
Corbin and King’s European Grand Café on Piccadilly is the go to place at any time of the day – perfect for celeb-spotting, breakfast, good value prices and a real buzzy atmosphere.
The ever improving streets to the north east of Oxford Circus have another excellent addition to the dining scene. A small team of passionate and knowledgeable sushi chefs will prepare all your classics beautifully but the real delights are in their omakasi sets where they mix global flavours and ingredients to produce some truly stunning sushi.
Thai food with open kitchen pub style dining. Enjoy large pots of Thai curry with rotating fish of the day such as fresh mackarel and lots of holy basil.
The best American style steakhouse in London - owned by Russians! Tomato & Blue Cheese Salad, Pickled Herrings, New York Strip medium rare, all the sauces - nice bottle of Jordan Cab Sauv - perfect!
Having just opened in London Bridge, Duddells comes to London from its Michelin success in Hong Kong. The setting is an old church, where they really have got the atmospherics right (which could have been difficult) and an overly flirtatious service team. Peking Duck and quirky fish shaped dim sum is what you go for with a very high price tag to go with it. Duddells will be part of the dim sum trend growth in London for 2017 and 2018……there are more coming!
Great buzz in the centre of Mayfair – perfect for everything from a business breakfast, a bowl of pasta for lunch or a full-on dinner in the sexy dining room.
Excellent service and top quality. A great place to treat yourself to a luxurious lunch.
Amazing old banking hall in the heart of the City of London. Fantastic throughout with 8 restaurants on the ground floor featuring some of London’s most iconic restaurants such as Cecchoni’s, it really is special!
Classic Chris Galvin cooking - beautiful, tasty grown-up food in a stunning dining room and the opportunity to indulge in the famous Hermitage La Chappelle by the glass.
By the same amazing team as Bao, London. XU has opened serving the most equisite Taiwanese food. Mini spring onion pancake, foie gras terrine, red dates and shaoxing wine jelly and tomato and smoked eel. The design is not only stunning but a clever use of a small space. Service is superb. Palomar (another of our favourites!) is next door too – this street is getting more interesting
