  • 20+ Restaurants in Mayfair to Visit in 2024

    London’s most upmarket area, Mayfair boasts an abundance of top class restaurants, with more Michelin stars than anywhere else in the city. And while it’s been criticised for stuffiness in the past, many of its high-end eateries have revamped their offerings to meet modern needs. We’ve also seen flurry of exciting, buzzy openings, heralding the beginning of a new era in fine dining: from the chic Italian hotspot Sparrow to Chantelle Nicholson’s eco-minded Apricity and Tom Sellers’ Dovetale, housed within 1 Hotel Mayfair. That’s not to say we should forget about local stalwarts like Wiltons, one of the capital’s oldest restaurants, and the legendary 47 Jermyn Street. Here we highlight some of the best places to eat in the neighbourhood, spanning Japanese, Indian, French and more.

  • London restaurants opening in October

    Not everyone wants a tasting menu washed down by natural wines; sometimes straightforward pizza and pasta scoffed in glamorous surroundings soundtracked by a DJ hits the spot. Sparrow lands in Mayfair by way of Los Angeles and is themed around the Italian coastline, which is rather more apparent in an emerald-and-blue design scheme than a menu on which carpaccio of A5 wagyu is as likely as salt-crusted red snapper. There are four floors to fill, including a street-level brasserie, a first-floor indoor/outdoor dining room and terrace, a second-floor Parlour and a top-floor cigar lounge; with cacio e pepe (pictured) whirled tableside from a wheel of pecorino cheese, there should be no shortage of takers.

  • Luxury London: Sparrow Italia "Coastal Italian" Comes to the Capital

    An email arrives in my inbox announcing the opening of Mayfair’s newest fine dining restaurant. Sparrow Italia, it promises, will be offering something called Modern Coastal Italian cuisine. Great. Mayfair isn’t short on seafood restaurants thanks to the likes of Scott’s, Miro and Bentley’s Oyster Bar. Yet it is lacking a restaurant that combines seafood with an emphasis on quintessential Italian flavours.
