Moro
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
34 - 36 Exmouth Market, London EC1R 4QE
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

Back in 1997 when Moro first opened, Exmouth Market was still a scruffy Clerkenwell street and this restaurant with its implausibly good looking bar staff and open kitchen was the second most exciting thing to happen to the area food-wise since The Eagle threw open its doors. Run by the marvellously-monikered Sam and Sam Clark, it's still turning out great food in a room that's packed every day of the week.

Critic reviews - total score 6 out of 10

This popular street food spot has a permanent home with short ribs, wagyu brisket, tacos, smoked mac n' cheese and more on the menu. Plus there's another bar downstairs, 46 and Mercy, serving cocktails.

dishoomkx
North London
5 Stable Street, London N1C 4AB
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

Dishoom is perennially popular in London, with its take on Bombay cafe culture responsible for long waits and queues at all their restaurants. This King's Cross restaurant is busy in the evening and for weekend brunch, but you can easily book for lunch. it's cavernous interior also makes it one of the largest in the group. But once settled down inside, you'll see why people keep coming back for its excellent Indian small plates.

gymkhana
Mayfair, Belgravia
42 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JH
Critic reviews - total score 8.5 out of 10
Michelin star 1 Michelin star

The Sethi family's concept of taking a colonial gymkhana club theme and serving modern Indian food combined with British ingredients, with a focus on the tandoor oven and sigri charcoal grill was an instant hit. Always packed with A-listers and foodies alike.

Ham Yard Hotel
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
One Ham Yard, London W1D 7DT
Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

This is the latest boutique hotel from Firmdale (also behind the Soho Hotel and Charlotte Street hotel) with a new restaurant and bar attached - as well as an extensive outdoor courtyard.

Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The main reason for the rise of Holborn Dining Room's fortunes is down to the work of their head chef, Calum Franklin. Follow him on Instagram if you want to be permanently hungry and also to marvel what he's able to do with pastry. While the whole menu deserves praise, you really need to aim for anything pie-related on the menu (there's always a special pie section on the menu) and you'll be sure of a work of genius here.

Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

This is the main restaurant at the London Edition and Jason Atherton is in charge of things. Expect a more upmarket affair to some of Atherton's other spots and a frankly jaw-dropping room too.

63–69 Canonbury Rd, Islington, London N1 2DG
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

Originally the home of Neil Rankin, both he and the restaurant have moved on, although the emphasis on smoking and BBQ remains. Alongside the food expect plenty of rotating beers and the outside garden is a surprise oasis just off a busy Islington road.

Dirty Bones
Chelsea, Kensington, Knightsbridge
20 Kensington Church Street, London W8 4EP
Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10

By day, this restaurant will look for the world to be a basic hot dog kiosk serving up one classic Yankee dog (served with yellow mustard, red ketchup and spring onions). At night a hidden door to the restaurant downstairs is opened, where they'll be serving up an extended hot dog list and also the 'bones' part of the menu (Boston ribeye steak and more) plus what looks to be a great cocktail list.

STK London
Westminster, Strand, Victoria
ME by Melia Hotel, 336-337 The Strand, WC2R 1HA
Critic reviews - total score 4.5 out of 10

This new hotel designed by (Norman) Foster + Partners takes over the old BBC Marconi building. As well as a rooftop bar offering great views of London, it's the first non-US outpost of New York steakhouse STK, which has taken over the ground floor restaurant. STK aims to be a more "female friendly" steakhouse, with an emphasis on lighter meals.

MASH London
Mayfair, Belgravia
77 Brewer Street, London W1F 9ZN
Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

Taking over the old site of Titanic is this Modern American SteakHouse which hails from Denmark. The original is in Copenhagen and should offer an American steakhouse with "a twist of Danish informal eating and drinking". The menu offers the usual wide range of steaks while veal sweetbreads, foie gras terrine and salmon ceviche standing out among the starters.

caravankx
North London
Granary Building, 1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The original opened up in Exmouth Market to great reviews and they haven't looked back since. Now in multiple locations across town, this was Caravan's second opening in London and one of the first places to open on Granary Square. Coffee remains a big thing, supplied by their nearby roastery. Food-wise, they serve what they call a "food well-travelled" menu all-day and their brunch remains one of the most popular in town.

One of the biggest Hawksmoors of the standout steak group, this one has great views over Regent Street and also places a special focus on seafood dishes created by fish maestro Mitch Tonks. It's a big old room too, seating up to 235.

dishoomshore
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
7 Boundary Street, London E2 7JE
Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10

One of London's biggest success stories, Dishoom seems eternally popular. Serving up all manner of Indian small plates, there's just as big a focus on the bar here as the food. Expect to wait for your table at peak times.

16B New Street, London EC2M 4TR
Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10

Part of the Old Bengal Warehouse on New Street, near Liverpool Street Station, this is the seafood restaurant, serving responsibly sourced fish.

Brasserie Zedel
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
20 Sherwood Street, London W1F 7ED

Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

Set in a revamped space just off Piccadilly (where the old Regent Palace Hotel used to be), this is a Parisian café/brasserie with an Art Deco interior as well as cocktail and jazz bars. It's an all-day restaurant with a focus on value for money, so expect something a bit more mid-range than the Delaunay, also from Corbin & King.

Hix at the Tramshed
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
32 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3LX
Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

Mark Hix is back in force in East London with this huge new restaurant featuring a menu based around chicken and steak. Look out for the enormous Damien Hirst "cock and bull" as you enter.

Burger & Lobster
Mayfair, Belgravia
29 Clarges Street, Mayfair, London W1J 7EF
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10

The folks behind Goodman are on a mission to offer Londoners the kind of Lobster experience you get on the east coast of America. They hope to offer the cheapest lobster in the UK, thanks to their tank which can take a tonne of lobster at a time.

The people behind the Riding House Cafe have previously opened Village East and the Garrison in Bermondsey. This central London spot is all-day brasserie with an American feel, featuring small plates to share as well as more traditional mains.

Cay Tre Soho
Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
42-43 Dean Street, London W1D 4PZ
Critic reviews - total score 6.5 out of 10

Cay Tre in Shoreditch/ Hoxton is felt by many, including Mark Hix, to be the very best Vietnamese restaurant in town. Also owners of the successful Viet Grill, they've been expanding lately - first with the recent Keu, and now with a flagship restaurant right in the centre of Soho. Expect a restaurant with a bright look, to challenge the vogue that contemporary Asian restaurants must be dark and moody, and more of a small-plates approach than the original Cay Tre offered.

Michelin star 1 Michelin star

People may complain about the sharp table-turning at this subterranean Chinese restaurant - Alan Yau's follow-up to Hakkkasan, but you'll never hear a bad word about the dim sum. If it's something sweet you're after, head for the street-level patisserie and tea shop.
