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.

This is a different beast altogether, offering a kebab tasting menu like no other.


15 Henrietta Street, London WC2E 8QG

The Devonshire

17 Denman Street, London W1D 7HW

The Devonshire is a team-up between top landlord Oisin Rogers, founder of Flat Iron Charlie Carroll, and chef Ashley Palmer-Watts.

The wood-ember grill upstairs takes classic grill dishes and elevates them considerably, with some of the best lamb chops in London, a great suet pie and a standout chocolate mousse.
