The world's best female chef
Clare Smyth has been named the World’s Best Female Chef Award by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and, as well as many other awards and accolades, her Notting Hill restaurant has collected three Michelin stars since opening in 2017. She and her team showcase the very best of artisanal British produce in their à la carte menu and tasting menus, served in light, elegant surroundings.
Three stars for two decades
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's eponymous restaurant was first awarded three Michelin stars in 2001 and has managed to retain them for over two decades. Under the day-to-day command of chef patron Matt Abé, modern French cuisine is served in elegant surroundings with an intimate, private dining-room feel. A choice of à la carte and tasting menus are served at lunch and dinner; for an exclusive, bespoke chef's table experience book The Inspiration Table, for up to four guests.
An extraordinary experience
From the moment you enter the historic listed Mayfair townhouse that houses Sketch's five restaurants you're met by an incredible display of colours and lavish decor. Upstairs in the three-star The Lecture Room & Library, the exuberance spills onto the plate, with ambitious, creative and artfully-presented French dishes bearing the hallmarks of chef Pierre Gagnaire.
French chef Hélène Darroze's London headquarters at The Connaught hotel is a work of art in itself, all warm wood, curved lines and blush hues, with specially commissioned art by artists such as Damien Hirst on the walls. The personally tailored dishes are made using ingredients from French and British producers personally selected by Hélène.
The legendary Alain Ducasse has been awarded a total of 21 Michelin stars over the course of his long and distinguished cooking career. Though executive chef Jean-Philippe Blondet is at the helm, Ducasse's influence is felt in signature dishes such as Rum Baba, alongside fresh new dishes. Service is charming and decor as luxurious as you would expect from a fine-dining restaurant on Park Lane.

A gastronomic journey to China
Chef Andrew Wong's ambitious Chinese cooking earned the restaurant a second Michelin star in 2021, making it the first two-starred Chinese restaurant in Britain. Start the evening with a signature cocktail in the Forbidden Den bar before being transported on a gastronomic tour of the vibrant regional cuisines of China, all served in atmospheric surroundings. Don't miss the popular dim sum menu at lunchtime.
A family affair
In 1974, Le Gavroche was the first restaurant in the UK to receive a Michelin star and then, three years later, the first UK restaurant to receive two Michelin stars.

Spices and sustainable produce
Carefully sourced spices, particularly from sub-Saharan West Africa, meet seasonal, sustainable British produce at this innovative restaurant in St James's.
