Notting Hill - 105-107 Talbot Road, London W11 2AT
Notting Hill's Dorian comes from Chris D'Sylva, the man behind Notting Hill Fish + Meat Shop and has become a massive hit with reservations extremely hard to come by and a very A-list clientele to boot. It's billed as a British bistro and wine shop and has a top-class team behind it, particularly in chef Max Cohen, previously at Kitchen Table, Ikoyi and Frantzén.
Mayfair - 12 St George's Street, London W1S 2FB
Coming from the same group that opened Sumi and Endo at the Rotunda, this is a wood fire concept in Mayfair. Colombian-born chef Miller Prada leads the kitchen with a huge wood grill at the heart of the open kitchen, with the counter being the place to be, sitting in front of the most intricate grills you're likely to see. Look out for more fireworks on the very impressive cocktails.
Price: The set lunch starts at three courses for £58. There's also a six-step tasting menu for £108.
Fitzrovia - 21 Berners Street, London W1T 3LP
Akoko, from Aji Akokomi, is centred around West African cuisine and they say their aim is to "pay homage to the country's culinary heritage by using recipes passed down through generations and traditional cooking techniques of smoking, curing and fermenting". Expect a mix of British ingredients and African spices throughout the menu.
Price: The three-course menu is £55 and the longer eight-course menu is £120.
Soho - 54 Frith St, Soho, London W1D 4SL
This is top chef Angelo Sato's solo Soho restaurant and while it started life as a restaurant that was all about chicken (hence the name), it's now changed into a much broader omakase affair that's described as serving a "Japanese-inspired 8-course tasting menu with a European accent." That said, you may see some chicken yakitori making an appearance in the tasting experience.
Price: The 12-course omakase for Saturday lunch is £95. Otherwise, it's a 16-course omakase offering for £145.
Soho - 16 St Anne's Ct, London W1F 0BF
Hidden away in Soho is Simon Rogan's only London restaurant, a chef's table experience that fits in just 12 people per sitting. Everything is centred around the kitchen, so you're right in the thick of things. Here you can expect an ever-changing "farm to fork" tasting menu with a large amount of the produce sourced from Rogan's own Lake District farm.
Price: The tasting menu is £185
Area - Flemings Mayfair, 7-12 Half Moon St, 7-12 Half Moon St, London W1J 7BH
The main restaurant inside the Flemings Mayfair hotel, Ormer is now run by Executive Chef Sofian Msetfi (previously at Adare Manor and The Hand and Flowers). It uses seasonal produce from the UK and also has its own kitchen garden in Essex. That's all used in a solely tasting menu experience (and they have vegetarian and vegan options too).
Price: The five-course tasting menu is £79, the seven-course menu £115
Fitzrovia - 3 Great Titchfield St., London W1W 8AX
After initial success in Brixton, Adejoké Bakare moved Chishuru to a bigger space in central London. In this two-floored space you'll find the same modern West African cuisine that proved such a hit at the original opening. Expect a regularly changing set menu with some truly innovative touches to West African dishes.
Price: It's £40 for lunch and £75 for dinner
Mayfair - 45 Park Ln, London W1K 1PN
Already enjoying two Michelin stars at his Tokyo restaurant, chef Shinji Kanesaka created a stir with the opening of this incredibly luxe omakase restaurant at 45 Park Lane, not least because of the startling cost of the set menu. Given that he's one of the finest traditional Edomae sushi masters in Japan that price probably isn't surprising. With just 13 seats the diners are getting an incredibly intimate experience here.
Price: The omakase menu is £420
