Azerbaijan's always played second fiddle to Borat's homeland (kind of embarrassing -- who wants to be an afterthought behind Hammersmith?), but not anymore, thanks to Baku. Now open in Chelsea from esteemed restaurateurs who formerly helmed Marco Pierre White's, this high-spec Azerbaijani experience is split between an elegant, all-white, chandelier'd dining space and, accessible via spiral staircase, a darker bar whose stained-glass windows will oversee the baptisms of many a liver.
