London’s Most Fashionable Restaurants

NoMad Restaurant

The NoMad Restaurant

With its cool New York vibe and sultry interiors, it’s no surprise the first European outpost of the NoMad hotels group has become a hotspot for celebrities since it opened last year, with names like Alexa Chung and Lena Dunham booking rooms. Its glass-roofed, three-storeyed restaurant has become Instagram-famous, with a suitably luxurious menu offering everything from lobster pasta to sharing steaks. Easily one of the most fashionable restaurants in town.

The Twenty Two Restaurant

The Twenty Two

Everyone from Jeff Bezos to Naomi Campbell has been spotted at this new Mayfair members’ club, so there’s no doubt it will be a hub for fashion types this September. The venue boasts some of the most aesthetically pleasing interiors in town, spearheaded by Natalia Miyar – think bevelled mirrors, dark blue velvetted banquettes and brass chandeliers. Its restaurant, meanwhile, serves a suitably stylish menu which channels British seasonality with a nod towards Mediterranean cuisine. And, if you saunter down some prowling leopard carpeted stairs, you’ll find deep red walls that enclose a plush, louche, sexy basement situation that’s screaming out for an afterparty.

Folie

Folie

Folie on Soho’s Golden Square is one of Victoria Beckham’s favourite restaurants in Europe – so of course it’s ultra-chic. Interiors come courtesy of Studio KO, the Parisian agency behind Chiltern Firehouse, with the design intended to evoke the glamour of the French Riviera in the 70s, alongside a stylish Mediterranean menu to match. Check out our full review here.

Sexy Fish Bar

Sexy Fish

One of London’s most fashionable restaurants year-round, during London Fashion Week the restaurant and bar are always packed to the brim with the stylish crowd. The Frank Gehry and Damien Hirst installations add a big dose of glitz, and the Asian fusion menu provides delicious fuel for the party that goes on until late.

The Wolseley Exterior Nick Ingram

The Wolseley

A firm favourite amongst London’s culture and fashion lot, and always great for celebrity spotting. The best place to go for breakfast before hopping in a taxi to the first shows of the day – if you can get a table.

Annabel's

Annabel’s

Private members’ club Annabel’s is as fashionable as ever post-refurb, and a known favourite of the Vogue lot. Will you be lucky enough to get an afterparty invite? Don’t miss its new Japanese restaurant, either.

DUKES LONDON

The Dukes Bar

Everyone who’s anyone knows that the best martinis in town (and possibly the world) are served by Alessandro Palazzi at Dukes in St James’. Beware: they’re devilishly strong.

Floral by Lima

Floral by LIMA

Peruvian cuisine is loved for its freshness, flavour and colour – and the fact that it’s surprisingly healthy. Expect to find the ‘in crowd’ hanging out at this fabulous restaurant filled with inspiring prints and texture between shows.

The Best Peruvian Restaurants in London

Harry's Dolce Vita Interior

Harry’s Dolce Vita

The latest restaurant from the Caprice group, Harry’s La Dolce Vita is impossibly glamorous and is located opposite Harrods, making it an essential stop for high-end designer shoppers. Order anything with truffle.

27-31 Basil Street, London SW3 1BB; harrysdolcevita.com

Farmacy Interior

Farmacy

Keeping healthy is vital during Fashion Week – and can prove difficult with all the backstage champagne and post-show parties – so refuel at Farmacy in Notting Hill, the hippest vegan restaurant in London. There’s even a wicked CBD oil-infused cocktail that’s great for relaxing after a long day of back-to-back shows.

Quaglino's

Quaglino’s

This venue off Piccadilly still exudes old-school glamour with a hint of the OTT, with its iconic central bar, overflowing flutes of champagne and regularly scheduled live jazz. The go-to spot for the more mature fashion insiders, who affectionately refer to it as ‘Quags’. Read our full review here.

Greyhound Cafe Interior

Greyhound Café

With its brilliant street food, buzzy atmosphere and cool interiors, this Thai-fusion restaurant attracts an international crowd who are in town for the shows. Expect to see big foreign department store buyers sharing a few DIY ‘Complicated Noodle’ dishes with their top clients.

37 Berners Street, London W1T 3LZ; greyhoundcafe.uk

Chiltern Firehouse

Chiltern Firehouse

The constant stream of black taxis and chauffeur-driven Bentleys on Chiltern Street are evidence of London’s big names within the walls of now-legendary Chiltern Firehouse. Enjoy food from Michelin-starred chef Nuno Mendes, especially the crab doughnuts (which we have the recipe for here).
