Spuntino
61 Rupert Street, London W1D 7PW
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

Russell Norman's Polpo was a hit the minute it opened its doors. This smaller successor is billed as 'a sort-of speakeasy with food; like a machine-age downtown NYC Italian diner' and seats just 30 people. Head chef is Rachel O'Sullivan, former sous-chef at Polpo.

Hawksmoor Seven Dials
11 Langley St, London WC2H 9JG
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

Located in the old Watney-Combe brewery, complete with original vaulted brick ceiling, the new Hawskmoor restaurant looks as though it's been down this narrow Covent Garden street forever. There's also a private dining room for up to 14 people and a bar where you can pop in for 'a casual burger and beer'.

The Opera Tavern
23 Catherine Street, London WC2
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

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.

Polpo Covent Garden
6 Maiden Lane, London WC2E 7NA
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

With everything Norman (and partner Richard Beatty) opens turning to gold, da Polpo is one of the hottest tickets in town. It's a little bigger than Spuntino or Polpetto with room for 70 diners and there's a meatball section on the menu.

Bill's Produce Store
St Martin's Courtyard, off Long Acre London WC2E 9AB
Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10

Beloved by London expats down in Lewes where it first opened, Bill's Produce Store is a deli/grocers where you can also sit and eat. Bought up by Caprice Holdings' Richard Caring, this massive Covent Garden branch in the area between Long Acre and St Martin's Lane also offers takeaway food.

J Sheekey Oyster Bar
28-32 St. Martin's Court, London WC2N 4AL
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

Fans of counter dining have long known that one of the best lunches in town was to be had up dining up at the bar in Sheekeys, if you could get a table. Happily the move sideways into an neighbouring building has allowed Sheekeys to create a brand new Oyster bar while seemlessly giving it the Sheekey magic touch.

Bocca Di Lupo
12 Archer St, London W1D 7BB
Critic reviews - total score 8.5 out of 10

Jacob Kenedy's Soho Italian wins universal praise for its cuisine, a well-chosen wine list and for one of the most beautiful counters in town - a top counter dining spot.

Ba Shan
24 Romilly Street, London W1D 5AH
Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

This is the third restaurant to be opened by the team behind Bar Shu and the Baozi Inn and it's been seducing punters with its innovative take on Sichuan cuisine. The twist here is that the menu is made up of small dishes that you'd more commonly see served up by street vendors. Needless to say, they get a more refined treatment here, but are just as delicious.

The Red Fort

Cantina Laredo
10 Upper St Martin's Lane, St Martin's Courtyard, London WC2H 9FB

London doesn't have much in the way of upmarket Mexican, so this gourmet offering from a high-end US chain may be just the ticket for anyone fancying an enchilada. There's a private dining room for 20, large terrace for outdoor drinking and a monthly tequila dinner which sounds lethal but fun.

Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

The folks behind Italian restaurant Bocca Di Lupo expanded across the street to offer a selction of special Gelato and coffee as well as frozen pasta from Bocca di Lupo.

Critic reviews - total score 5 out of 10

The spanish restaurant at London's high-profile Aqua restaurant offers both a tapas and a-la-carte menus. Head chef here is Salamancan Alberto Hernandez trained at El Bulli. The selling point here though is the restaurant's two terraces offering fantastic views over central London.

Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10
Michelin star 1 Michelin star

People may complain about the sharp table-turning at this subterranean Chinese restaurant - Alan Yau's follow-up to Hakkkasan, but you'll never hear a bad word about the fabulous dim sum.

Andrew Edmunds
46 Lexington Street, London W1F 0LW
