We asked the designer to tell us where he prefers to eat out when he's in London.


The River Cafe 
Thames Wharf, Rainville Road, London W6 9HA

"Besides the fact that the food is always fantastic- its a classic establishment that always makes you feel like Tuscany on the Thames."

Bar Boulud
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, 66 Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7LA

"I am biased about the design as it is one of mine- but I have to say that is a warm and inviting ambience whether you are dropping in for drinks or in the mood for a great burger."

More people give us their Hot Dinners picks:

Broadcaster and writer Mariella Frostrup: "I think he's one of the great, slightly under-celebrated British cooks"

Jamie Oliver: "We had the most fantastic meal there..."

Top food writer Claudie Roden: "I just love the way they cook and because they also do some of the meats and some of the cuts that aren't popular and that I love."

Observer food critic Jay Rayner: "I sneak off to this small, unassuming place."
