Kensington Restaurants

Restaurant neighborhood
51 Kensington Church St., Kensington
Ffiona's serves traditional, rustic staples, like steak and kidney pie and an amazing sticky toffee pudding, but the raison d'être is Ffiona herself, the ever-present owner who makes every customer feel like a personal guest in her small, wooden, candlelit restaurant. Ffiona has recently added an excellent brunch every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with everything from the a English breakfast to fluffy pancakes (and a free cocktail on Saturday). Her traditional Sunday roast is not to be missed.
Kensington Pavilion (Closed)
96 Kensington High St., Kensington
Residents are pretty thrilled about this newcomer, as there is a surprising dearth of good restaurants in the neighborhood. Adjacent to a private member's club, Pavilion does give members special perks like priority booking and "room service," but also welcomes non-members for chef Adam Simmonds' truly worthy British menu. While he's not breaking any rules, the food—straightforward standards like steaks, local fish, and lamb—is great. Plus, when you’re greeted with a bouquet of flowers from the on-site florist and then dine in a somewhat dazzling Art Deco-inspired setting, it makes any meal feel special.
