The 43 Best Restaurants in London


Cuisine: Modern European

Style/Ambiance: Occupying what used to be the headquarters of Christian Dior, Sketch is chic, glamorous and trendy.

The Michelin-starred Lecture Room & Library, at the top of the Grade II listed building, offers haute-cuisine by chef Pierre Gagnaire in a plush setting of studded ivory leather walls, ornate plasterwork ceilings, and rich furnishings in purple and crimson. An added bonus is the clientele; come here to observe high-flyers of every ilk sip their champagne and chow down on langoustines, venison, and a huge selection of desserts.
