66 Knightsbridge Rd., Knightsbridge
This sister restaurant to renowned chef Daniel Boulud's original in NYC is a super-chic bistro and wine bar that boasts sleek décor with vaulted ceilings and an open kitchen. Everything from the 'Little Bites' to the charcuterie and crustaceans are wonderful for dinner, and the £23 prix-fixe lunch is a great value. You also can't go wrong with a cocktail and their outrageously good burger.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, Knighstbridge
Well, the actual dinner you'll eat will be created by Ashley Palmer-Watts, executive head chef of the Fat Duck group, who has worked with Blumenthal to create the exquisite modern British fare here. Being that this place is inside the Mandarin Oriental, it attracts a high-profile clientele—both hotel guests and locals—who like to linger in the warm, handsome room.
5 Raphael St., Knightsbridge
A few years ago, it felt like nobody could stop talking about Zuma. Sometimes too much hype can turn you off a restaurant, but that's not the case here. More than 10 years after its opening, this favorite still serves one of the best meals in London. The nouvelle Japanese cuisine remains creative and unexpected, and the sushi shef, Endo, is still dishing up our favorite sushi outside of Japan. The vibe here can be a little bit loud and clubby, but it doesn't matter—we would literally sit outside in the rain to eat this food.
