Mayfair Restaurants

Establishment neighborhood
14-16 Bruton Pl., Mayfair
The kaiseki here is traditional in its form but often modern in its offerings, with a set menu of eight exciting, meticulous, and ingredient-focused dishes and an impressive wine and sake list. With a choice between a regular or a sushi kaiseki, the offerings vary on what's in season, and you can really tell that whatever arrives before you was plucked from a stand that very day. They also have à la carte sushi options, but if you can, go with the set menu, as it's worth it for the experience.
8 Mount Street (Closed)
8 Mount St., Mayfair
This splashy new brasserie is on one of Mayfair's most exclusive streets, near the Berkeley hotel, the Celine flagship, and a number of other upscale shops and institutions. The cozy space practically glistens, covered in bronze tiles and a long leather banquette that spans the room. The menu is equally comforting, as it's certainly not out there to break any boundaries with its familiar dishes and mediterranean bent—there's lobster linguini, grilled langoustines, and a phenomenal Dover Sole. It's a welcome addition to the area which needs more lunch/dinner/drinks spots.
Park Chinois
17 Berkeley St., Mayfair
After months and months of construction and delays, Alan Yau's Park Chinois is finally open. He's known for creating incredible restaurants and then selling them (Wagamama, Yuautcha, the list goes on) and this may just beat them all. At Park Chinois, as they're more than happy to explain, the theme is the 1930's, the era of the Cotton Club, Big Band Jazz, and Shanghai's golden age. After a dinner of Shanghai-style delights like Bang Bang Chicken Salad and Shabu Shabu, it's time to dance to some live big band swing in the gilded ballroom—it's the stuff of pure fantasy.
16 Picton Pl., Mayfair
London's newest Mexican spot has landed in Mayfair and befitting of its upscale neighborhood, this taco shack has been tricked up to the max with Mexican memorabilia. The nicely concise and well-edited menu of tacos—from traditional baja fish tacos, to cochinita (marinated pork) to their signature chicken molé, to Peruvian anticuchos (skewers), which are a slight departure—come accompanied by a slew of tequila-based cocktails (and a few choice wines and basic drinks for the faint of heart), which makes Molé the perfect start to a big night out in Central London.
