London is buzzing with the openings of several hot, new restaurants.

The Delaunay (pictured), in Covent Garden, is a star-studded restaurant and takeout counter from the team behind the Wolseley. The menu is Mitteleuropa (wursts; schnitzel; an excellent Sacher torte); the Art Deco interiors are by David Collins. 55 Aldwych; 44-20/7499-8558; dinner for two $106.

Hix Belgravia secures the new Belgraves hotel a place in London’s foodie constellation. Star “modern British” chef Mark Hix gives his dishes a global spin: rack of red deer from Scotland, or a curry of Red Sea prawns and pumpkin. Pont St.; 44-20/3189-4850; dinner for two $140.

Mishkin’s is the latest small-plates venture from Russell Norman, proprietor of Polpo, the Venice-meets–Manhattan hot spot in Soho. Here, the Jewish deli is the touchstone: chopped chicken liver with pickled radishes; latkes with smoked eel. 25 Catherine St.; 44-20/7240-2078; dinner for two $63.

Brawn is drawing crowds to East London’s Columbia Road, best known for its Sunday flower market. The lure? A menu focused on seasonality and provenance—from the Suffolk pork belly to the natural wines. 49 Columbia Rd.; 44-20/7729-5692; dinner for two $63.
