Polpo’s flagship in W1 is a cool and casual option for groups looking to venture away from regular Christmas fare. Italian small plates are the name of the game on a set menu that channels the food of Venetian bacari (wine bars). The characterful subterranean Campari Room is where to book, a room that mixes 18th-century charm with a bespoke Campari mural. Early-birds will be rewarded with an upgraded menu, but you’ll have to book your do in November.
