Sky Garden is London's highest public garden, offering outstanding views of the city and three unique restaurants -- Fenchurch Seafood Bar & Grill, Darwin Brasserie, and Sky Pod Bar.
M isn’t just a restaurant or a bar: it’s in fact two restaurants (Raw and Grill), a wine bar, a cocktail bar, plus an event space and even a “secret den” (whatever the hell that means). They did not go for subtle here with dark, moody interiors, a meat display room, and lots of metal.
Jinjuu is the first solo restaurant of Judy Joo, with one floor devoted to anju (that's Korean for drinking food) and another for sharing platters and and Korean/American mashups like a whole Korean fried chicken.
FC is a Brooklyn-inspired space filled with cocktails, all the grills, and a pretty epic-sounding brunch. It doles out Nutella French toast, pumpkin waffles, eggs in every way imaginable, craft beers, and a damn fine whiskey selection. You can't go wrong.
El Patrón is bright, colorful, and really brings the heat. With over 60 types of tequila, a menu full of Mexican street food, and a house band and DJs on the weekends, you are sure to be thinking you can totally speak español by the time you leave.
Sushi, sashimi, robata grill, and awesome cocktails are what you can expect here from this West End number. With a swank design and dishes like scallops tartare with wasabi ponzu, sea bass with a ginger sauce, and miso & yuzu mustard marinated pork belly kushiyaki, this spot is set to have you eating till you’re rolling out the door.
This Ealing pub is run by the crew from The Gun and it serves more than 100 wines (in addition to a bounty of beers), and you can get a three-course feast in the ballpark of £35. And with the brewmaster on hand for questions, tutorials, and pairings, this is a beer lover's dream.
Somewhere between Japanese and Peruvian is Amaru. With mega-fresh and local ingredients you can grab everything from sushi to ceviche, with avocado, truffles, and mango all making of tasty appearances. And with solid take-away options, plus a little izakaya-inspired dining space, you can indulge and pat yourself on the back for being kind of healthy.
This East Asian Soho BBQ joint and bar features plates with an emphasis on sharing, like fatty tuna with avocado and jalapeño remold, Loch Ryan oysters with apple & kimchi mignonette, and kimchi & potato pancakes.
This, the second Ceviche location, is a slightly larger affair than the first, with a dedicated ceviche bar plus a rotisserie and a side bar for the drinking and snacking crowd.
The fourth outpost in the Tonkotsu empire, the Mare St spot is filled with all the ramen, gyoza, and katsu you could possible want. The big difference from the other locations, aside from a couple site-specific dishes, is a longer cocktail list.
The Brew team have opened a number of great restos around South London (Wimbledon, Clapham, Battersea), but what makes the Putney addition so welcome (apart from the delicious chorizo/king prawn Hellfire Pizza) is the fact that it has a heated outdoor cinema.
This Mayfair eatery features lots of red leather, award-winning dishes (like grilled sea bass, ox cheek, potato and sprout tops, and mackerel escabeche), plus an open kitchen perfect for chef-watching. This unpretentious spot offers delicious dining, candlelight, and lovely wine options to choose from.
