The Best Restaurants in London

Restaurants | Exmouth Market

Coin Laundry A kitsch, 70’s inspired diner, with bottomless brunch, cocktails and chicken kievs.

Restaurants | Angel

MEATliquor N1 A temple to excess, meat and booze.

Restaurants | Brixton

Nanban A Brixton spot serving ramen and Japanese soul food in a former pie and eel shop with exposed brick walls and dining booths on wheels.

Restaurants | Covent Garden

Cafe Murano Covent Garden A more relaxed outpost of Angela Hartnett’s Michelin-starred Murano.

Restaurants | Covent Garden

The Black Penny We don’t usually write about coffee shops. Because most of them don’t have a head chef. Or a subterranean Seminar Pit hosting regular lectures, events, discussions and other things you might like to go to. The Black Penny however, does.

Restaurants | Soho

BAO Soho A small, slick Taiwanese street food-esque restaurant serving small plates, sides and steamed milk buns in the heart of Soho, run immaculately by a husband and wife head chef team.

Restaurants | Marylebone

The Golden Hind Never take anything you find in the newspaper too seriously. Unless it’s fish and chips from The Golden Hind: Marylebone’s more than 100 year old, family run, BYO chippy.

Restaurants | Chelsea

Medlar Serving seasonal, simple, well-executed British cum French cuisine in an understated dining room with understated staff and an understated wine list, they both have a Michelin Star and, more importantly, don’t act like it.

Restaurants | Shoreditch

Rochelle Canteen A subtly secret restaurant from Melanie Arnold and Margot Henderson with a daily changing menu and located inside the repurposed bike shed of an old Victorian Era schools grassy playground.
