North of Oxford Street, there's a lot to choose from - and it's not all confined to Charlotte Street. Here's our pick...
Foley's Tasting Kitchen in Fitzrovia is headed up by Head Chef Mitz Vora - who's been Sous Chef at the ever-hot The Palomar. He's the sole creator of the menu at Foleys, which is "experimenting with food from around the world with trade route twists and influences".
This is the second restaurant from the people behind the hugely successful Bao in Soho. Expect the usual bao buns but with many small and sharing dishes that are unique to this branch too. And they also take bookings too - so that's something of a blessing.
Also known for his appearances on Saturday Kitchen, this is Jun Tanaka's first solo venture. It's a French/Mediterranean neighbourhood style restaurant which uses fine dining cheffing techniques but with a more casual feel. So expect a mix of small plates and larger dishes, with a Michelin touch.
Kitchen Table is in many ways the main event of the two-part restaurant from James Knappett and Sandia Chang (also including Bubbledogs). Here you can expect a new meal almost every visit as the menu evolves depending on the chef's preferences and the seasons. And all this in a setting that sees you seated around the open kitchen watching and interacting with the chefs.
Ledbury chef James Knappett and his wife Sandia Chang, (sommelier at Roganic) have opened a restaurant of two halves. This is the hot-dog half at the front of the restaurant, serving up gourmet hot dogs alongside Grower champagne and other sparkling wines.
This Peruvian restaurant is from Virgilio Martinez, former Executive Chef at Astrid y Gaston, listed on the San Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurants list. It aims to "integrate Peruvian traditional cuisine with a modern and contemporary twist."
This restaurant Fitzrovia comes from Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich, a team that used to work at Ottolenghi and Nopi. The restaurant specialises in Middle Eastern cuisine and it's rated by many as one of the best restaurants in the area, and has a sister restaurant too - Honey & Smoke.
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.
