This was Yotam Ottolenghi's first full-blown London restaurant, following in the footsteps of his still-crazily popular delis. The menu features plenty of sharing dishes - signatures include their courgette and manouri fritters and Valdeón cheesecake.

Often cited as one of the most romantic restaurants in London, this Soho stalwart is also a great old-fashioned bistro with a decent wine list. If you're looking for somewhere to be flatteringly lit by candlelight - this is the spot.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
4 Mercer Walk, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9FA

This is from the same people as the original Le Bab - but it's a restaurant of two halves. Upstairs you'll find their next-level kebabs which are inspired by and are paying homage to great kebab houses. And downstairs is the hidden counter dining restaurant Kebab queen. This is a different beast altogether, offering a kebab tasting menu like no other.

Critic reviews - total score 8.5 out of 10

Following on the success of their Shepherd Market restaurant the team behind Kitty Fisher's opened their second restaurant on Covent Garden's Henrietta Street. They set out their stall as 'complex comfort food' and the always-on toastie is a good example of that.

Michelin star 1 Michelin star

This is Adam Handling's main restaurant where you'll be able to get some of his signature dishes (not to mention the amazing chicken butter). It's worth also heading to the Eve Bar here for some world class cocktails.

Westminster, Strand, Victoria
1 Surrey Street, London WC2R 2ND

Toklas is a Mediterranean restaurant - with specific Italian, French and Spanish influences. But that's not all as it's also a top-notch bakery from the man who launched Angel Bakery in Abergavenny. All that and there's a very handy bar space too.

From the same stable as Salt Yard and Dehesa, this serves tapas-style dishes in a refurbished pub setting. Their teeny Iberico pork and foie gras burgers are worthy of the trip here alone.

Often seen as both the theatregoers and the actors' port of call post-theatre, Sheekeys is a London institution. Best known for its seafood, including an incredible fish pie. A must-visit for every Londoner.

North London
Euston Rd, London NW1 2AR

Booking Office at St Pancras was always an impressive looking restaurant but the latest design has really kicked things up a notch, emphasising the height (there are trees inside!) and with a lighter design. That's paired with a new many by Allegra's Patrick Powell that really helps to make this a proper destination restaurant. The cocktails are particularly good too. 

South London
14 New Union Sq., Embassy Gardens SW11 7AX

This is chef Sven Hanson Britt's first solo restaurant, and combines that restaurant with a shop, bar and gallery. It's all about his signature tasting menu and has a big focus on using local producers.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
49 Lexington St, Soho, London W1F 9AP

After a number of years in pop-ups and other spaces across town, Rita's have settled in Soho for their main restaurant (they also do sandwiches in Dalston). The menu is inspired by owners Gabriel Pryce and Missy Flynn travels across the Americas and the wine list is pretty special too.

North London
52 St Thomas’s Road, London N4 2QW

This is the Finsbury Park restaurant from Four Legs, the team that became a hit at The Compton Arms, and created one of London's best burgers along the way. This is a much bigger space for them acting as part pub, part restaurant with a regularly changing menu. And yes, there will be burgers.

East London
322-324 Acton Mews, London E8 4EA

Taking two railway arches in Haggerston, Planque is a wine bar, restaurant, members' club and store, with a key focus on natural and low intervention wines. And most importantly it has Seb Myers (ex P Franco and Chiltern Firehouse) running the kitchen and serving up a modern take on French food.

West London
301 Portobello Road, London W10 5TD

Fiend is from Chris Denney, previously of 108 Garage. Here's he's putting together a menu that's trying to be as eclectic as it can in what's described as a "vibrant bohemian restaurant, bar and lounge" that's "provocative, rebellious and inspired".

South London
339 Battersea Park Rd, London SW11 4LS

Recently renovated, this popular Battersea haunt has been given a Gatsby-style makeover. So if you’re after somewhere a bit glam to go ‘out out’ then this is the venue for you. Weekend brunches are a big thing here and the cocktail list combines both low and no alcohol serves as well as those with a serious kick.

South London
Embassy Gardens, 2 New Union Square, Nine Elms, London SW11 7AX

With a spa, hairdressers and beauty salon, the cafe here follows the same ethos of wellbeing with a plant-forward menu and list of organic wines on offer. Vegan, flexitarian, gluten-free and dairy-free diets are all catered for.

East London
177-179 Morning Ln, London E9 6LH

Nest comes from the same team behind West London's Fenn and offers a set, regularly changing menu of small plates with a strong focus on provenance and local, British suppliers. Sustainability is also a big thing here and the wine list concentrates on low/no intervention.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
77 Brewer St, Soho, London W1F 9ZN

This huge restaurant in Soho is inspired (officially) by DC Comics. But you may well have heard it referred to as "The Batman restaurant". Essentially, it's a massive subterranean space which takes elements of various Batman stories as its theme. There are multiple areas throughout, but the immersive Monarch Theatre is an experience like no other in London.

East London
Canal Place, 32 Andrews Rd, London E8 4RL

This is Max Rocha's solo restaurant by the canal in Hackney. The chef came from The River Cafe and like many of London's best chefs has also spent time at St John Bread & Wine. It's just breakfast and lunch right now, but dishes like rabbit tagliatelle and sage & anchovy fritti (not to mention Guinness bread ice cream) should make this a very worthwhile trip to the canal.

East London
68 Dalston Ln, London E8 3AH

All-day Hackney restaurant Little Duck - The Picklery comes from the same people behind Rawduck and Ducksoup. It's part shop and cafe and they're proud of their fermented food and drink (as the name gives away). On the menu, expect small plates that see those pickles put into action, with a focus on sharing.

Westminster, Strand, Victoria
Conrad London St. James, 22-28 Broadway, Westminster, London SW1H 0BH

She won loads of plaudits for her time at The Harwood Arms and now Sally Abé has moved to the Conrad St James. She's in charge of all the food at the hotel and this is her main restaurant, aiming to "build on the foundations of British cuisine" with a menu that intends to be elevated but fun.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
28 Bow St, Covent Garden, London WC2E 7AT

This sees boutique US hotel group NoMad has expanding outside the USA for the first time and they've done it with style. It combines a world-class bar (the cocktails are truly excellent) with one of the best looking restaurants in London and became an instant hit. The Chicken Dinner is definitely worth a look and the bar is very welcome for an area of Covent Garden that isn't blessed with them.

West London
Sheldon Square, Paddington Central, London W2 6HY

The Cheese Bar team could simply have settled for serving cheese platters on a boat and Londoners would have lapped it up, but they've done so much more with this floating restaurant. The vessel itself - purpose-built- gives nearly everyone a water level view. As for the food, it really is all about cheese in many, many different forms - and that's a very good thing.

King's Cross, Bloomsbury
43 Store Street, London WC1E 7DB

Anna Tobias is an ex-River Cafe and Rochelle Canteen chef and her first solo venture, in Bloomsbury, is backed by the people behind 40 Maltby Street and it's very much about comfort food. Keep an eye on Instagram for the daily changing menu - each one is a masterclass in great menu writing.

South Bank, London Bridge, Bermondsey
153-157 Tower Bridge Rd, London SE1 3LW

Coming from Robin Gill, this is The Dairy Mk II in everything but name. The same team, the same seasonal menus, great wine and cocktail list - just in a different location.

East London
Unit 7, The white building, 1st Floor,c/o CRATE Bar, Queen's Yard, London E9 5EN

This East London restaurant from Douglas McMaster is at the forefront of no-waste cooking (and restaurants) in London. McMaster has been involved in the no-waste initiative from the early days and has created a restaurant that both embraces the movement fully and showcases the excellent food that a no waste ethos can produce.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
2 Greek St, Soho, London W1D 4NB

This is the follow up to the original Noble Rot, led by Mark Andrew and Daniel Keeling. This Soho outing is a purely restaurant affair, which takes on the building that used to be the Gay Hussar. Dishes explore the heritage of that Hungarian restaurant and, of course, there's an excellent wine list.
