Hoppers St Christopher

Hoppers St Christopher's Place

77 Wigmore Street, London, W1U 1QE

It doesn’t feel as exclusive as the Soho original, but the menu at Hoppers 2.0 is still a winner. The hopper is an obvious ordering choice, but we are also fans of the ‘short eats’.

Delamina

56-58 Marylebone Lane, London, W1U 2NX

Hive Selfridges

Hive Selfridges

400 Oxford Street, Marylebone, London, W1A 1AB

A restaurant based around honey may sound somewhat gimmicky, but Hive takes its theme seriously (in fact, 3,000 bees now call the Selfridges rooftop home). Tuck into dishes such as monkfish roasted with rosemary honey.

£30 - £49

Les 110 de Taillevent

Les 110 de Taillevent

16 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G 9DD

Beautifully presented, yet unpretentious food combined with a choice of 110 by-the-glass wines makes this luxe French restaurant popular for dates and special occasions. Charming service helps to soften the edges of the dramatic, low-lit dining room.

Brasserie of Light

Brasserie of Light

Selfridges, 400 Oxford Street, London, London, W1A 1AB

Undeniably arresting, this diamond encrusted brasserie is primed for Instagram photoshoots. There is substance beneath all the glamour though, with the food here being far better than it needs to be - order the lobster spaghettini.
