“My favourite has to be The Grand Imperial in The Grosvenor Hotel, Victoria. Their Roasted Peking Duck is the best in town!” — Recommended by Scott Hallsworth, Co-owner and Executive Chef of Kurobuta & Joe’s Oriental Diner


La Figa in Limehouse is great if you fancy typical Italian and I’m also a big fan of La Petite Maison in Mayfair, which is fantastic for Provençale-style food.” — Recommended by Damien Rigollet, Head Chef at Coq D’Argent


"If I'm eating out, I tend to venture to The Modern Pantry, Quality Chop House or Moshi Moshi. I know all the head chefs at each restaurant and we all use the same Cornish day-boat fisherman so I trust the quality of the produce they're serving”. — Recommended by Peter Weeden, Head Chef at Newman Street Tavern


“The seasonal, local dishes at Brunswick House in Vauxhall are incredibly tasty and set in a great building.” — Recommended by Cary Docherty, Head Chef at Little Social


“The Helene Derroze Restaurant at The Connaught is exceptionally good. I always feel nostalgic when I go back to The Connaught as I worked there for so many years. I also like Quo Vadis – they are close by and I like their style. Jeremy Lee, the Head Chef, is a great friend.” — Recommended by Oliver Lesnik, Executive Head Chef at L’Escargot Soho


Little Italy on Frith Street, Soho serves real, unfussy Italian food and is open all day and half the night seven days a week. They do the best Charcuterie I've seen through to wonderful Calamari Fritti, a very good Ragout with Papardelle and an excellent Seafood Pasta.” — Recommended by Stephane Pacoud, Head Chef of Bellamy’s


Andrew Edmunds on Lexington Street is a hidden Soho gem. Housed inside a snug 18th century townhouse, it’s cosy and romantic with candles and charming fresh flowers adorning the tables. Food here is simple, earnest and always on point with seasonal, fresh and predominantly British produce. The wine list is amazing and they always welcome in my trusty companion, our dog Noodle on our visits.” — Recommended by Sandia Chang, Co-Founder of Bubbledogs and Kitchen Table


“I’m a big fan of Morito in Exmouth Market. It has the laidback, informal excellence that I look for in a restaurant. The menu is designed to ease the decision-making process as you can try a wide range of dishes, all at an affordable price. Plus, it's the food I love to cook myself and so has provided me with loads of inspiration and ideas.” — Recommended by Josh Katz, Chef Proprietor, Berber & Q 


"I really like The Ledbury. The food never, ever fails to impress. Both the food and service is so consistent, and I really like the style of service and overall feel of the restaurant." — Recommended by Michael Wignall, Executive Head Chef at Gidleigh Park
