December really is the most enchanting time of the year in London. The twinkling lights, a warm spice in the air and jovial get-togethers are all hallmarks of the Christmas season.
This year, here are Insignia’s top restaurant picks to make the most of these festive reunions with friends from near and far:
Founded by Costas Spiliadis, Milos is a high-end, white-tablecloth pescatarian restaurant focused on imported Greek fish and recognised as one of the finest Mediterranean seafood restaurants in the world.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Known as one of London’s most celebrated restaurants, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is located in the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge. Offering exceptional views of Hyde Park, the interiors are inspired by Heston Blumental’s interest in 15th and 16th century cooking.
It’s certainly the trickiest restaurant to secure a table at in London. Chiltern Firehouse is also a hotspot for Hollywood celebrities and the international elite. The food deserves a nod too. Led by chef Nuno Mendes, the cuisine is European with American flourishes.
Coya is a modern Peruvian restaurant that showcases the best of Latin American culture. Featuring three open kitchens, a Ceviche Bar, Pisco Bar and authentic, traditional décor, Coya offers clientele a contemporary journey into trendy Peruvian cuisine.
Park Chinois is Alan Yau’s latest offering and foray into Mayfair. The formidable entrance features a gate with metal finials. The restaurant pays homage to the heady days of 1950s Shanghai and the Dinner Dance.
