HAKKASAN

The group of restaurant Hakkasan has two exceptional branches in London, one on Hanway Place and another one on Bruton Street. Its Michelin star and amazing reputation gave the place the recognition of being one of the finest Asian restaurants in London. Thus, booking is essential.Obviously, an excellent kitchen had to be driven by an excellent Chef. Tong Chee Hwee is the responsible for the great variety of incredible food in the menu at the Hakkasan Mayfair. I would definitely recommend their delicious seared Wagyu beef with white asparagus and their snow egg white Chilean sea bass. In addition, Hakkasan also has a high-quality option for veggies.

Nothing is achieved without an extraordinary hard work at the Hakkasan Hanway Place. The menu represents the so-deserved Michelin star with its mouth-watering steamed mini New Zealand lobster wrapped in glass vermicelli, its pan-fried Atlantic scallop with Hakka, its Mongolian style lamb chop and many other dishes. Amazing!

Chiltern Firehouse

Quite recently, André Balazs has decided to launch Chiltern Firehouse Restaurant as his new business in the capital. The Restaurant was built up in an old fire station in Marylebone.

The decoration is based on the original appearance from the old firehouse with high ceilings and large doors. The walls are made out with brick tiles, the floors are wooden and the benches are green which give a quite modern look to the place.

The menu has a quite high influence from the American cuisine, however, with a touch of elegance, magnificence and delicacy. The house’s chef, Nuno Mendes, has implemented a variety of dishes on the menu which come from a simple snacks to crab doughnuts or slow-roasted short rib.

It is considered to be one of the most exciting recent openings in London, worth trying it out!

BEACH BLANKET BABYLON

The BBB, as it is known, was established in the year of 1990 in the heart of the very charming Notting Hill area. Apart of the west-London branch, there is also a east-London Beach Blanket Babylon Restaurant, which is located in the cool-fashionable area of Shoreditch.

If you are popping in at BBB’s Notting Hill branch for a drink, do not hesitate to ask for their amazing and most-famous house cocktail, the Porn Star.

The menu changes every season, however, the chef makes sure that every food served at lunch or dinnertime is fresh. The dishes are based on the best of English cuisine.

If you wish to have a more elaborated dinning experience at BBB, I would definitely recommend you to book a table at their marvellous private dining Ballroom. The interior design looks absolutely fabulous!
