brand new culinary era. Indeed my gastronomic amigos, London is now not only a renowned epicurean melting pot of the highest order, but it is also home to some of the finest dining establishments in the world. Whilst French restaurants fight snails and frogs over Michelin Stars, they’re practically giving them away in London!
Fine dining has taken London by storm and it is in the heart of the city where you’ll find the most prestigious gems. So choose a rental apartment in the City for your next holiday in London, and take your taste buds on the gourmand voyage of a lifetime.
Le Gavroche, 43 Upper Brook Street
Le Gavroche has been in operation for almost 50 years. The bébé of French Master Chefs Michel and Albert Roux, this exquisite gem swiftly raised though the ranks, and has been considered the best French restaurant in London for years.
Not only does Le Gavroche boasts TWO Michelin Stars, but is also the winner of a myriad of awards through its illustrious existence; so for a French affair to remember, head to this elegant establishment in Mayfair and be sashayed away by its ambience, elegant furnishings and mouth-watering fare.
This treasure has often been referred to as a ‘temple of gastronomy’ and it is certainly deserving of reverence. The bar is very inviting and we highly recommend getting here a little earlier than your booked time, so you can savour an enticing aperitif or two. Your palate will be more than ready then, for quite possibly the best French meal of your life.
Bookings are a must and sometimes run months in advance. Actually to be honest…we recommend you book a table here first, and then book your holiday rental and flights accordingly!! The best thing about a holiday rental in the city is that after a meal at Le Gavroche, you can just levitate yourself back for a good night’s sleep.
Two Michelin Stars? We’d give them 10!
The Capital Restaurant, 22-24 Basil Street
For a spot of afternoon-tea heaven whilst on a holiday in London, we suggest you not walk past The Capital. This subtle yet extremely elegant 5 star boutique hotel is home to one of the best restaurants in London. The Capital Restaurant also specialises in French fare, but it also boasts a reputation for offering the quintessential London afternoon-tea par excellence.
You’ll find this chic hotel just a block away from busy Harrods, and it is even this busy location which adds to the allure.
Step inside The Capital and immerse yourself in an oasis of elegance and tranquillity. The attentive staff will cater to your every whim, and the timeless décor will make you feel like a queen, even if only for a few hours. The atmosphere is intimate and quaint, and the food delectably delicate, yet filling and satisfying.
Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, 68 Royal Hospital Road
Gordon Ramsay really needs little introduction. He’s the man we love, or hate, or sometimes love to hate…but no matter what your opinion of Gordon Ramsay’s TV persona may be, we think there’s one think we can all agree on: the man can cook. In just over a decade this larger-than-life character has managed to build an epicurean emporium of colossal proportions. And we all know that this would have never occurred had the food not tasted simply sensational.
Using only superior ingredients and showcasing Mr Ramsay’s flair for innovative and bold combinations, the meals at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay are well deserving of their three Michelin Star rating.
But enough about the man…what about the food you ask? Brace yourselves ladies and gentlemen, for you’re about to embark on a heck of a joy ride!
Let’s whet our appetite with a starter shall we? Perhaps you’d like to indulge in a sampling of ‘lobster, langoustine and salmon ravioli gently poached in light bisque, and served with lemongrass and chervil veloute’? Or maybe you’d like to dive straight into a main course of ‘over roasted pigeon served with frilled polenta, smoked ventrèche, braised shallots and date sauce?” Hmmm… need we continue?
The setting is elegant and timeless, the cuisine superb and the service faultless.
See? All that yelling really did pay off.
