Since the new year we have had a couple of foodie trips to London. We love how varied the London restaurant scene is from markets to Michelin starred fine dining restaurants and everything in between, you can’t go wrong! The restaurants we have recently visited and would highly recommend are…
The Berkeley by Marcus wearing
We ate from the lunch menu, a choice of 3 starters, mains, desserts with matching wines.
The dishes had mouth watering flavours and the techniques used executed interesting plates of food.
The blood orange and cardamon custard dessert was one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. The wine it was paired with was equally yummy! Service was amazing! We loved the hotel bar, blue bar, too for after lunch drinks. Lunch time offerings in London are amazing value for money!
A restaurant with a super unusual concept, all it serves is champagne and hot dogs, sitting at high stools in a trendy, wooden establishment with friendly but very efficient service. The champagne list was endless with everything from great value to top notch, which surprisingly went incredibly well with a hot dog!
Ivy Cafe Marylebone
Ivy cafe’s and brassieres are popping up all over London and aren’t dissimilar to the Ivy itself. Quirky deco, smart service and some of the classic Ivy dishes on the menu. We ate croque Monsieur and the Shepard’s pie which is simple but outstanding. This is definitely a pleasant experience.
Ferra at Claridges by Simon Rogan
Again the lunch menu, outstanding, refined dishes with plenty of extra small dishes between courses and amazing staff! Simon’s philosophy is noticeably different with extremely clean, pure, healthy and seasonal executed plates. Not compromising one bit of flavour. We were shown round the kitchen which was huge and was running like clockwork. It’s a must to drink champagne and celeb spot after dining in the classic Claridges bar!
One of our firm favourites, the Wolsley
Whatever time of day, its always bustling and has an electric atmosphere. The brunch is outstanding and serves everything from fruits, fresh pastries, traditional eggs Benedict to haggis with a fried duck egg – which is delicious, the bloody Mary’s wash it down a treat!
Honey and Co.
This tiny no frills Lebanese restaurant has food to die for, prepped from a tiny kitchen, cooked with love and care by a husband and wife who really know what they are doing. Menu changes regularly. Staff are super friendly and helpful. It’s always packed!
When shopping in Harrods
The rotisserie bar is a must. Sitting up to a bar, people watching and eating simple perfectly cooked spit roasted duck or chicken served with French garnishes and a meaty jus, Mouth watering!
Great atmosphere in a bustling tiled food hall.
Bar crawl from the Galvin at windows sky bar at the Hilton Park Lane to Mr Forggs, quirky and exclusive cocktail bar to Hakkasaan bar and sexy fish bar with a great vibe and buzzing atmosphere!
We love London ❤️
