These 11 Restaurants Are Famous On TikTok

1. Circolo Poplare

Of course one of the Big Mamma Group hotspots was going to top the list: the restaurant group is famed for its ostentatious venues. Circolo Poplare was one of the group’s earlier openings, launching in Fitzrovia in the summer of 2019. It features striking interiors by Studio Kiki, who aimed to recreate the feel of a typical Sicilian wedding – think wisteria, festoon lights and whitewashed booths, with a display of over 20,000 bottles lining the walls. bigmammagroup.com

2. London in the Sky

This is not a restaurant per se, but a pop-up that allows diners to dine 100ft in the sky. It’s set to return to the 02 for its third residency this summer, offering lunch, afternoon tea, cocktails and sunset dinners while soaking up spectacular views of the city.

3. Ave Mario

Another Big Mamma Group number, Ave Mario in Covent Garden is typically larger-than-life, inspired by Italian churches (with a fun twist). Décor is bold, with red banquettes, black and white striped walls and a myriad of bottles lining the walls of the main dining room. And food is equally extravagant, with a dedicated list of Venetian caviar dishes alongside sharing pizzas made using the ‘Biga’ technique, a 24-hour process that ensures the dough is extra pillowy. bigmammagroup.com
