Mayfair
Bar / Restaurant
Modern European

Eating here is a surreal and tantalising experience. It's easy to become jaded when out and about in London, but we'd urge you to enter with fresh eyes and you'll have a dining experience unlike any other. Sketch is a complex and unique site. The food is imaginative, bold, ground-breaking and delicious. If you can tear your attention away from the kooky decor long enough to look at the menu, you find what seems familiar but, when the food arrives, makes you realise that Sketch is in a league of its own. The triple dream of launching a place for food, art and music has been realised over two expansive floors of a converted 18th century in Conduit Street, Mayfair.

If you're going to book a table for a meal in London's most expensive neighbourhood, you might as well ensure that there's a Michelin star to back up your decision.

After leaving Gordon Ramsay's Maze restaurant, chef Jason Atherton opened this, his first independent restaurant in central London. The simply menu is divided into hot, cold, meat and fish sections and for the sweet tooth amongst you, there is a stand-alone dessert bar. The menu's emphasis is, understandably, fresh British seasonal ingredients. The private dining room is worth booking as it is enclosed in the wine cellar and comes with an army of sommeliers.

Mayfair
Restaurant

This restaurant will please anyone who is keen on sharing their every waking moment on social media. Everything from the frontage, to the decor, the food, and even the toilets has been cleverly pieced together with Instagram and Facebook in mind. You will not be able to resist the urge to photograph it all. Don't let this discourage you though because the flavours are worth talking about too. Mixing Eastern European and West African influences on a modern British menu, the chef (who previously worked with Ramsay and Wareing) presents a beautifully creative, yet succinct menu. A smart choice when visiting the Royal Academy of Arts, Savile Row, or designer shops on New Bond Street.
