Dining is something we do regularly. Sometimes it helps to have a little guidance as to where to eat. When in Knightsbridge, you might want to try one of these restaurants.
Dining out isn't a luxury any longer. It's a way of life, and something many of us do regularly. It still feels like a luxury to have our breakfast, lunch, or dinner cooked and prepared for us. But as the variety of eateries and cuisines available within London's city limits is enough to make your eyes water, let's provide some guidance.
There's a lot more to Knightsbridge than upmarket hotels, Harvey Nichols, and Harrods. Let's start by recommending some of the best restaurants in Knightsbridge. Here are five:
1) Outlaw's at The Capital
This Michelin-starred restaurant can be found at The Capital Hotel. Headed up by acclaimed chef Nathan Outlaw, who also runs a successful seafood restaurant in Port Isaac, Cornwall, the 'master of fish' won't disappoint your taste buds. The menu is seasonal and changes regularly, while the dishes are created using the freshest fish caught off the Cornish coast. For lovers of seafood and original cooking, this is the place to dine in Knightsbridge. The fish could not be fresher, despite being miles from the sea.
2) Marcus at The Berkeley
Marcus Wareing's star has shone brightly for a long time now. Simply named 'Marcus', this two Michelin-starred restaurant champions modern British cuisine in a smart yet relaxed setting inside The Berkeley Hotel. Expect rich, succulent, outstanding food, attentive service, and a sommelier who knows a thing or two about complementing wine with food. This is the right venue if you've got something special to celebrate. Eating here is an event in itself.
If 'sushi restaurant Knightsbridge' is exactly what you're looking for, this is the place to sample sophisticated Japanese cuisine in the area. As you'd expect, a selection of fresh and tasty sushi and sashimi is on offer, as well as a range of dishes cooked on a robata grill. There is also a tasting menu and a variety of 'Zuma dishes', which include roasted lobster with green chili, fried langoustines with sour dashi, and rib-eye steak with wafu sauce. Irresistible. The service is faultless, too.
Authentic Lebanese cuisine. No fuss, no frills, just delicious food. This venue is popular, and it's not hard to see why. The menu is extensive, with a selection of hot and cold starters, potages, and skewers of charcoal-grilled meat, as well as fish dishes. Order anything from the menu and you can't go wrong. The atmosphere is lively and the welcome is always friendly. However, if you don't feel like dining out but still want to sample the best of Beiteddine, they offer a takeaway service.
5) Céleste at The Lanesborough
The Lanesborough, a 5-star hotel on Hyde Park Corner, has long been lauded as one of the best destinations in London in which to enjoy afternoon tea. But it's also somewhere we recommend for an evening meal. In the latest edition of the UK Michelin Guide, a handful of London restaurants gained a Michelin star for the first time. One of these was Céleste.
Céleste will take your breath away, both in terms of the inspired dishes and the richly-decorated dining room. French culinary maestros Florian Favario and Eric Frechon of Le Bristol Paris head up the kitchen, so your expectations will be high. Those expectations will be met. This is modern European cuisine with a creative twist. Happy dining.
