London's Hottest Tables
Our guide to where and what to eat now.
Edwins: This quintessentially English pub—Tudor windows, draped curtains, and large wooden tables—became an instant hit when it opened in the spring. On the menu: elevated British classics such as lamb “chump” chops with eggplant and zucchini, and for dessert, gooseberry trifle. $$$
Rabot 1745: Nearly every dish at Rabot 1745, the brainchild of Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris of Hotel Chocolat, is laced with chocolate, from the carpaccio Rabot, doused in a 100 percent cacao–liquor dressing, to the guinea fowl and cocoa-infused yogurt. $$$$
Assado: In a light-filled space with colorful tiles, Indian chef Cyrus Todiwala serves Portuguese, Brazilian, and Goan fusion plates inspired by his travels around the globe. Order the galinha cafreal zambeziana (chicken leg marinated in coriander with garlic and green chiles). $$$
Restaurant Story: The Michelin-starred Restaurant Story spotlights Tom Sellers’s culinary ingenuity with dishes such as an apple stuffed with beef tartare and truffle. $$$$
