Chelsea has some of the best restaurant offerings around – fact! From Brasserie Gustave to Haché and Polpo, oh and not to mention Bluebird, it’s a brimming SW3 oasis of Champagne popping and brunching at Tom’s Kitchen. For this very reason, we reached out to the brand spanking new cast of Made in Chelsea who have just filmed Season 17 – ouch, that makes us feel old – to see if they ever stray from the decadent realms of their borough when it comes to cuisine. Turns out the answer is in fact yes, and they had some whopping suggestions of where to feast, where to grab their caffeine fix and where to rid themselves of the booming headaches after a rendezvous in Raffle’s…

“I love trying new places and recently have been obsessing over Clarke’s in Kensington. Lucian Freud used to have breakfast there so they have a few of his pieces on the walls, as well as a wonderful Grayson Perry. I was the youngest person in the restaurant by about 50 years which was also quite fun! Next on my list are Brat, Lyle’s, and Endo at Rotunda in White City.”
