After years of being derided for its lack of sophisticated dining options, London is finally hailed as a foodie capital of the world, and deservedly so. The city has thrown off its stagnant, unadventurous reputation and is now home to more than 70 different types of cuisine and an impressive roster of Michelin-starred restaurants. The creative energy radiating from our fashion and entertainment industries is making waves in the bar and dining scene too, so be sure to sample some of the best the city has to offer.

Voted ‘London’s most romantic restaurant’ by Harden’s Guide 2014, Clos Maggiore oozes fairytale charm. Once at your table, you’ll feel a world away from the bustle of Covent Garden outside, and the glass-roofed conservatory, lined with blossom branches dotted with fairy-lights, acts as something of a magical centrepiece to this special restaurant. At this time of year, you’ll be warmed by a roaring log fire, sealing the deal as one of the city’s most intimate spaces. Head chef Marcellin Marc, formally of Clos de la Violette, the double Michelin-starred restaurant in Aix-en-Provence, brings a Gallic twist to an extensive menu of intricate dishes, with lobster, scallop and king prawn tortellini, and honey-glazed breast of Aylesbury duck, accompanied by roasted red plums dressed in ruby port sauce, meriting a special mention. The restaurant also prides itself on a staggering wine list, boasting more than 25,000 hand-picked wines. Don’t panic, though – an expert sommelier will be on hand to help you select the perfect accompaniment to your meal.
