1. Le Petit Beef Bar, the most predatory
This is enough to please the pickiest carnivores. This brand, presented in Hong Kong (1 Michelin star), Paris, Monte Carlo, Dubai… every time is a huge success! The elegant decor, like here, with a square bar covered in red, is perfect for enjoying the dishes created by chef Thierry Paludetto and Riccardo Giroudi.
We find beef in all its forms from Australia, Japan and the United States, from street food to share (small kebabs, Sando Croque with the famous sauce) to signature dishes (Chateaubriand, Kobe beef, don’t miss the truffle). French fries).

2. Al Mare, a great Italian classic
With its large bay windows overlooking the Cadogan Gardens, this transalpine-accented restaurant has plenty of space to maintain privacy! Under the guidance of chef Marco Calenzo, we enjoy fresh pasta that can be seen being prepared in the open kitchen, antipasti, saffron risotto, veal Milanese…
The fairly comprehensive menu includes great Italian classics updated with the times. If you have any doubts, ask Stefano, the restaurant manager, for advice. Fun: the back of the Riva doubles as a sideboard.

3. NoMad, the most fashionable
Arriving at NoMad London in a former police station in Covent Garden, the view of the restaurant below is stunning. Located in the former courtyard of this historic building, it is crowned by a glass dome, under which the tables are arranged with green velvet benches.
The atmosphere is fun, the service is prompt. Chef Ashley Abodily’s unpretentious menu is diverse and features local produce. Our favorites? Breakfast with avocado toast and a beef burger. For lunch and dinner, the menu features classic dishes, some of which can be shared, such as an 800g beef rib for two. For the information of fans.

4. Tattu London, the most panoramic
Not far from the British Museum, Tattu London has a dreamy location on the roof of the Now Building, with great views of the West End, which is a real bonus! The decoration does not deny its origin and is reminiscent of a traditional Chinese house with a lot of fabrics, wood, marble, copper… collected in four different spaces around the garden.
The agenda is shared on the plate: dim sum, Szechuan red pork, Wagyu beef, king crab… Contemporary dishes inspired by the flavors of modern Chinese cuisine. Tip: ask for a table near the bay windows.

5. Ekstedt, chef Niklas Eksted’s first address outside of Sweden
Ekstedt London is the first address outside Stockholm of Niklas Ekstedt, the famous Swedish chef. The decor features brick walls, Hungarian Point parquet flooring and subdued lighting.
The philosophy of the place? Cook according to the original method. The show of a chef waving antique copperware over a fire is a real show to enjoy thanks to the open kitchen. We are discovering new flavors with several iconic dishes such as scallops smoked with hay or chanterelles accompanied by black truffles and lobster flambé… This is the most amazing table at the moment.
