Restaurants in Mayfair
Mayfair is home to a number of chic restaurants that feature some of the city's best food. Discover some of Mayfair's posh culinary offerings.
Richard Corrigan's restaurant in Mayfair provides diners an intriguing take on classic, hearty flavors. Eschewing the austere, whimsical dishes that other restaurants in the neighborhood sometimes favor, Corrigan's features fresh, seasonal ingredients prepared with the utmost care for nuance. You can round out a meal of slow-cooked short rib or line-caught sea bass with a selection from the restaurant's extensive, reasonably-priced wine selection.
If you are looking for something a bit more exotic, Hakkasan is the restaurant for you. This restaurant's hip interiors and edgy take on Chinese cuisine have gripped the imaginations and palates of diners. Try the famous roasted silver cod with champagne and Chinese honey or the roast mango duck, and luxuriate in the blend of culinary innovation and technical mastery that each dish displays. The prices are high, of course, but that is no surprise in this swanky neighborhood.
Galvin at Windows
For a truly unique experience of this vibrant neighborhood, you should sample the refined, creative cuisine at Galvin at Windows. Dine on Chef André Garrett's refined cuisine, including such intriguing dishes as terrines of foie gras, orange purée or spiced salt with toasted vanilla brioche, as well as subtly innovative takes, such as slow-braised Scotch beef. Every meal is further seasoned with the spectacular view through the windows. From the restaurant's 28th-floor perch, you can see the whole neighborhood, including the grand architecture of Buckingham Palace.
Afternoon tea at the Madison
For a more budget-friendly option, try the afternoon tea at the Madison's Lounge at The Washington Mayfair Hotel. At only £18 (£25 with a glass of champagne), this option allows you to dine in style without surrendering your entire week's food budget. Afternoon tea includes freshly-prepared finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and an assortment of pastries and cakes, as well as a wide variety of tea choices. The stunning Art Deco building provides a taste of luxury to accompany the delicious snacks.
