The white heat that once burned around André Balazs’ Marylebone hotspot has become a steady glow, and getting a table in a name other than ‘famous’ is now a possibility. So why make the booking? Well, readers say “the decor is perfect”, the all-inclusive style is spot-on and the food is “excellent every time” – sentiments we wholeheartedly endorse. The set-up continues to bewitch, with a garden terrace, various tables offering privacy as well as the chance to show off, and a raised open kitchen from which Nuno Mendes and his team send out some very likeable food. Snacks such as bacon cornbread and the famous coral-dusted crab doughnut are almost the best bits, although there’s a bold, fiery character to the rest of the menu too. Wood-grilled carrots come with yeast, brown butter and chervil, while short-rib is peat-smoked and served with charred cabbage. Don’t forget breakfast, complete with smoked mackerel, buttered mooli, kimchi and fried eggs – or the wall-to-wall luxury of a lobster and crab omelette for lunch. Wines are lovely, but decidedly pricey.
So far, this is the most exciting restaurant opening of the year. Housed in an old fire station in the heart of Marylebone, Chiltern Firehouse occupies a massive space & one which has been used incredibly well. Many of the building’s original features have been retained and restored, and it’s beautiful.The outdoor dining space is a very nice area for some al fresco summer drinking/dining, – an asset which many top London restaurants are missing. There’s an abundance of greenery, all perfectly groomed & maintained, and the space is a real breath of fresh air in the centre of town...

A year after opening Chiltern Firehouse is still on everyone’s bucket list. It’s still the place to be seen, and it’s still just as difficult to get a table.André Balazs’ properties tend to have this in common. He’s found the formula for generating the hottest places in town, attracting the well-heeled and far-famed like moths to a flame, and has watched his empire grow with rip-roaring success. Chiltern Firehouse is no different. It’s been ablaze ever since the hotelier turned his attention to London and transformed Marylebone’s beautiful old fire station into the most happening spot in West London...

This week I was treated to a meal at Chiltern Firehouse with the boy and Papa Shepherd. Known for being a hard-to-get-into celebrity hotspot, I was intrigued by what was to come.After finding the slightly hidden entrance we were greeted by many friendly hosts who showed us to the restaurant. Unfortunately there had been a confusion with our reservation (safe to say I wasn’t particularly impressed) so we were shown to the bar in the hope they could find us a table.
