Ten restaurants that recapture that holiday feeling
Not risking a trip abroad this summer? We don't blame you. Thankfully, you don't need to travel far to have your appetite for foreign flavours sated. London is a melting pot, bubbling with traditional cuisines from around the world. It's also a launching pad for bold and experimental fusion concepts.
From the dining room that fully immerses its guests in the Italian experience to the hidden-under-the-arches gem offering a one-way ticket to Porto, these restaurants conjure up our favourite holiday destinations, transporting us far, far away via our taste buds
San Marzano tomatoes, Amalfi lemons, wood-roast brill: the ingredients of the kind of dream Italian menu we all hope to stumble upon when pottering through the Italian countryside. Theo Randall at the Intercontinental brings a luxurious iteration of this without leaving W1.
Just reading the menu will make you salivate: burrata fresher than you've ever tasted and tomatoes with a fragrance that you'd happily bottle.
