The Most Luxury Restaurants In London For Every Type Of Food-Lover
Going out for a meal can often prove more of a challenge than it’s worth, with a plethora of good eateries to choose from now. Whether it’s for a warm family reunion or a romantic date location, Modern Dining Tables will show you a list of luxury restaurants down to the very best.
Taking influence from Nepal, China and Bangladesh, Atul Kochhar (the first chef to be awarded a Michelin Star for Indian cuisine) offers a unique experience that should surprise and excite even the most experienced of palates. There are a few must-try dishes – for a starter, the kachela maas is rich and light. Then there’s the Tibetan guinea fowl thukpa, an aromatic meaty noodle soup that packs all the flavour of a potent Chinese hot and sour broth, without the burn. Of the main courses, the seafood alleppey curry is sensational: pan-seared fish and shellfish in a coconut and turmeric sauce that looks as good as it tastes. Oh, and don’t forget to order a side of daal and egg curry. Kanishka pushes the boundaries on what we know about Indian food and the result is deliciously different.
Nestled within the iconic Michelin House, Claude Bosi and his team warmly welcome guests into their “home”.
Visit for coffees, breakfast, lunch or dinner in the ground floor Oyster Bar; cocktails and bar snacks in La Maison Rémy Martin lxuury bar – or for a fine dining experience in the elegant Claude Bosi luxury restaurant. The à la carte features brand new dishes alongside classics from the original Bibendum and the chef’s Michelin-starred alma matter, with ingredients sourced predominantly from the British Isles and France. The striking upstairs dining room with its dramatic and iconic floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows has been redesigned to house a larger central open kitchen. The light and modern dining room will feature the original Conran chairs with a soft colour palette of muted blues.
Upon entering STK, you could be mistaken for thinking you’re dining out in the chrome-hard ambiance of a Saint Tropez night club. As for the food, a new autumn/winter menu is in place, and it’s all about the meat: USDA grain-fed steaks, Irish moss fillets, burgers, American sirloins. If you’re one for a fine dining experience, this one is for you.
The food at two Michelin-starred restaurantUmu in Mayfair is inspired by the Japanese cuisine in the city of Kyoto. A luxury restaurant with quiet corners providing intimacy, and the sushi counter, plenty of excitement. The provenance of the ingredients is all-important; choose one of the seasonal kaiseki menus for the full opulent experience with over 160 different labels of sake.
There is a corner of East London that has brought sunshine, good times and a trattoria off the coast of Capri to the capital. Gloria is light and loud, chintzy and charming, vibrant and vivacious – it’s as if you have teleported from Shoreditch to Naples. To start, make sure to order a portion of “Filippo’s Big Balls” (slow-cooked meatballs in San Marzano tomato sauce) and the smoked stracciatella (the gorgeously gloopy heart of burrata). Next up for mains, you’ll be in pizza and pasta heaven – big portions and full flavours. For desert, plump for the pistachio gelato.
With a friendly atmosphere and comforting Italian food, you’re bound to enjoy dining at this luxury restaurant – an antidote to all the sterile, fun-free zones you’ll find on every corner of the capital.
