Nopi, Yotam Ottolenghi’s upscale restaurant, is Perfect For any time you need to impress someone but also not look like you’re trying too hard. It’s the restaurant equivalent of, ‘oh, this old thing?’. The Middle Eastern/Mediterranean sharing plates lean towards being mostly vegetarian but are uniformly excellent, and are where the best action is. Get the courgette fritters or burrata with blood orange. Nopi’s an excellent spot for brunch in central, especially when you can’t face the queue for the Breakfast Club.

Bob Bob Ricard
Bob Bob Ricard is an excellent place to drink champagne and people watch. The French/Russian food is good, and the room is over the top lush.
Bone Daddies brought hipster ramen to London, and for that we’re forever grateful. Hit it for an excellent bowl of noodles, and don’t skip the sides.
Wright Brothers Soho
Wright Brothers is an excellent place to hide away from the crowds in Soho, preferably with a drink and a fresh platter of oysters.
