When it comes to food, we all like the best, those sumptuous flavours, brilliant presentations and enticing aromas. There’s nothing like a little taste of luxury to make us feel like a VIP. We’ve come up with a list of our favourite luxury restaurants in London.
The Wolseley is located in a Grade ll listed building, near Green Park, and serves all kinds of treats ranging from breakfast to afternoon teas (champagne tea for those wanting to splash the cash) and of course dinner. The interior is opulent and glamorous, a neighbour to The Ritz, you wouldn’t expect any less. The dinner menu offers delicious offerings like oysters, steaks, seared duck livers, caviar and pot-roasted lamb.

The King of Creativity has a London based restaurant which earned a Michelin star in its first year of opening. He serves his typically wacky dishes like the ‘Fruit Meat’ where he created a chicken liver mousse to look like a Mandarin orange. It actually proved so popular that at their peak they were serving 900 portions a week. The food here is Historical British which means that every dish is based on a historical recipe ranging from the 14th to 19th centuries.
Corrigan’s Mayfair brings honest, no-nonsense food to one of the city’s most enviable postcodes. Generous portions accompany an exciting wine list and atmosphere to match. As well as a beautiful dining room and bar, the Mayfair restaurant boasts three, beautifully furnished private dining rooms. When dining at The Kitchen Library or The Chef’s Table, we suggest you ask to look in the kitchen where guests are welcomed before dining to meet and greet Richard Corrigan’s team of highly skilled Chefs for an introduction to your meal. The partridge with candied walnuts is a must have for the starter before sampling the red wine poached brill as a main.
Originally the British head-quarters for the French tyre company Michelin in 1911, the Michelin Building was lovingly restored to a restaurant, shop and office space in 1986. It’s now a glamorous and elegant venue, perfect for sipping champagne and watching the world go by. Bibendum’s Oyster Bar is more informal than the restaurant, with plenty of non-fish dishes for the less aqueously inclined. For puddings we recommend the Honey blancmange with Champagne poached rhubarb and pistachio madeleines.
