Top 5 London Restaurants

Share

Great food is about creating memories, whether that’s brilliant fish and chips, a sensational curry or the best lunch of the year at one of the world’s greatest and most iconic dining rooms. London has a plethora of great restaurants, whatever the occasion. The best of the best may be expensive, but it will be an experience you will never forget. Here are the top 5 of London’s best fine dining restaurants:


Bibendum

Bibendum Restaurant

Michelin House, 81 Fulham Road, London SW3

Almost two decades after arriving in England, chef-restaurateur Claude Bosi took charge of the legendary Bibendum kitchen in Chelsea in 2017. Bosi, a native of Lyon, won his first Michelin star at Overton Grange before winning two stars for his own restaurant after which he was head-hunted to resurrect Bibendum, which secured two Michelin stars within a year. Magnificent bread, the fluffiest amuse bouche, an olive dish the envy of Heston Blumenthal, and dishes which all have stunning flavors and textures working in harmony.


Kanishka

Kanishka Restaurant

17-19 Maddox Street, London W1

Kanishka was opened in Mayfair in March 2019 by Atul Kulchar, the joint first Indian chef to earn a Michelin star when at Tamarind in 2001. Also, in the kitchen at Kanishka is Sameer Taneja, formerly head chef of Benares under Kulchar. Kanishka serves the cuisine of northeast India, bordering Myanmar to the east and China to the north, which uses plenty of chilies. Try the biryani, the chicken tikka pie, the butter chicken kedgeree, and the naan bread, accompanied by choice of 100 wines or Cobra beer.


Gloria

Gloria Restaurant

54-56 Great Eastern Street, London EC2

A trattoria both chintzy and charming with its 1950s look, Gloria sells superb dishes, named with terrible puns, including the slow-cooked meatballs named “Filippo’s Big Balls” (Filippo is the chef) and flavor-filled pizza and pasta dishes in big portions. Be transported back to an optimistic world where the food is sensibly priced. They will box up what you don’t eat for later. The Incomparable Lemon Pie, sweet and tart, daft and irresistible sums up Gloria’s in one dish, for just £6.


Beck at Brown’s

Beck at Brown’s Restaurant

Albemarle Street, London W1S 4BP

Heinz Beck has the only three Michelin-starred restaurants in Rome, but in London’s Mayfair, he has created a menu with a focus on British and Italian ingredients. The restaurant is formal yet cozy, with dark wood decor and a selection of fine booth tables. Try the full five-course meal or at least try the truffle risotto, described as food hedonism, included on the menu overseen by executive chef Heros de Agostonis.


STK

STK Restaurant

336-337 The Strand, London, WC2 1HA

STK cleverly blends the modern steakhouse and chic lounge to offer a dynamic, fine dining experience of a traditional steakhouse. The acoustics are excellent so you can hear conversations and can have a good time even when the DJ is there from Tuesday to Saturday. The food is all about the meat: USDA grain-fed steaks, Irish moss fillets, burgers, American sirloins.
