Critic reviews - total score 6 out of 10

9 D'Arblay St, London W1F 8DR
Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10
Blanchette is from three brothers Maxime, Yannis and Malik Alary who are launching a "French bistro serving simple, classic and inventive French food". Similar to Salt Yard, it's primarily based around sharing "French tapas" plates. Look out for its sister restaurant in Shoreditch too.
The Palomar
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
34 Rupert St, London W1D 6DN
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10
Quite possibly THE best counter dining experience in town, albeit not the quietest one. Expect a Jerusalem-style menu here, with additional influences from Southern Spain and Italy, North Africa through to the Levant. You CAN grab a table at the back - but try for the full-on counter experience if you can.
Wright Brothers Spitalfields
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
8/9 Lamb Street, Old Spitalfields Market, London E1 6EA
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10
This is the third London opening for the oyster and seafood restaurant, following Soho and Borough Market.

Bob Bob Ricard
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
1 Upper James Street, Soho, London W1F 9DF
Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10
Bob Bob Ricard remains one of our personal faves in town. Whether it's the fantastically blingy design, the rich food with just a hint of Russian in there, the "press for champagne" button or... No, hang on, it's definitely for the Champagne button...
Polpetto
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
11 Berwick Street, London W1F 0PL
Critic reviews - total score 8.5 out of 10

Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10
Michelin star 1 Michelin star
This restaurant is from Jason Atherton and, to date, his only one in Soho. Expect a very British menu, with plenty of starters in jars too. As with all of Atherton's places, the bar is just as important - so make time to head upstairs for a cocktail or three.
La Bodega Negra
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
6 Moor Street, London W1D 5NN
Critic reviews - total score 5.5 out of 10
NYC's Serge Becker has teamed up with Will Ricker (Great Eastern Dining Room) to create a downstairs restaurant and bar, a road side taqueria, and all-day contemporary Mexican café.
Terroirs
Westminster, Strand, Victoria
5 William IV Street, London WC2N 4DW
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10
In an area of town more usually associated with after-office binge drinkers and faux American burger joints, the arrival of a new, cheerful Bistro offering great comfort food to the weary masses can only be a good thing.
Andrew Edmunds
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
46 Lexington Street, London W1F 0LW
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10
Often cited as one of the most romantic restaurants in London, it's also a great old-fashioned bistro with a decent wine list. And a Soho stalwart too.

Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10
Michelin star 1 Michelin star
This is the third venture for brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, whose Baker Street venue Galvin Bistro has forged a name for perfect brasserie food. Set in the frankly stunning St Botolph's Hall, La Chapelle is a fine dining restaurant with 100 covers.
Hakkasan
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
8 Hanway Place, London W1T 1HD
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The original Hakkasan is tucked down a tiny alleyway just off Tottenham Court Road. Step inside though and you're transported to a Chinese den of black laquer and gold. Awarded a Michelin star two years after opening, it's retained it every year since.
