im Cameron, head concierge at The Wellesley, Knightsbridge, recommends some of the top dining spots in the capital.
Authentic Italian dishes, created by talented head chef Sebastiano Cioffi, are the order of the day at The Wellesley’s own Oval Restaurant. It’s an intimate eatery and the perfect setting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, offering fresh flavours and seasonal dishes. Be sure to try one of the kitchen’s stone-baked pizzas; perfect every time.
One of the most prestigious private dining clubs in the world, Moismann’s is a wonderful family-run restaurant, helmed by legendary chef Anton Mosimann and his two sons. The unusual exterior and beautiful setting is what I love about Mosimann’s. It enjoys the luxurious and intimate atmosphere of a stunningly-converted 19th century church in the heart of Belgravia.
If you’re looking to indulge in Chinese fine dining, look no further than Mr Chow in Knightsbridge. Serving upscale Beijing cuisine by executive chef Tim Leaf, Mr Chow has become known for chefs performing hand-pulled Beijing-style noodle-making each night. Less than five minutes’ walk from The Wellesley, this is a great Chinese restaurant for a special occasion.
Boisdale of Belgravia
Bringing a bit of Scotland to London, Boisdale is a lively restaurant in Belgravia. With live jazz music every night, fantastic Scottish steaks and an extensive whisky menu, it really does cater for all needs. The traditional décor brings to life the Scottish roots, and I can guarantee you’ll have a great night here!
Boasting some of the best views over London, SUSHISAMBA is on the 38th and 39th floor of 110 Bishopsgate, offering a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. It has the highest outdoor dining terraces in Europe and an amazing structural orange tree, forming the centre piece of the bar. Whether you pop in for eye-catching cocktails or the delicious food, it’ll definitely be an experience you won’t forget.
