108 Brasserie, Marylebone

Tucked away in a little side lane, just a short stroll from Baker or Bond Street lies 108 Brasserie, a modern take on a fine dining restaurant with the same simple but delicious A la Carte menu morning, noon and night. With impeccable service throughout both the day and the evening, it remains popular for working lunches, dates and family get-togethers alike – not something you can say for everywhere in the city. Immediately upon arrival, we were seated and taken through the menu – which had its work cut out with Ellie and I, who both eat gluten free –…

Plates & Co, Westbourne

Situated in a beautiful old Church in Westbourne lies Plates & Co, an independent restaurant with a unique, yet simple concept. Their head chef, Nick – who also happens to be the owner – believes that great produce should be allowed to shine without too many frills or flavours – cooking each dish from scratch according to the diners preference. Each guest is given a choice of fish, chicken, steak, lamb, duck, linguine or risotto, which they can then mix and match to their sauce and 2 side ‘plates’. This concept provides a really flexible but delicious menu for all taste-buds…

Spring @ Prezzo, Bournemouth

With chic, classic decor and a hearty Italian menu, Prezzo is by far my favourite chain restaurant around. Although I absolutely love independent restaurants for their flair and individuality, sometimes (especially if you’re in a new city and keen to find something you love) it’s reassuring to head to your favourite chain – and for me, this is definitely Prezzo. I previously visited at Christmas to trial their festive selection (which you can read about here), however with lighter, more summer-inspired options on the re-vamped menu – we headed back for another sample. Since I last visited, I’ve had a bit…

Jackson & Rye, Soho

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to dine at the renowned Jackson & Rye, a sleek, polished take on the traditional American diner that has been favoured by bloggers far and wide. As always, I’d planned my menu choices weeks in advance (whatever happened to the days when menus weren’t accessible online) and couldn’t wait to taste the real thing! Although the chain has several London branches, we opted for the Soho edition – as it was closest to our hotel. From the outside, it’s very deceptive – as it looks rather small and dark, however upon…

Fashion Festivities at DSTRKT

Long-term readers of scarlettlondon.com will know that DSTRKT is my favourite restaurant (judging by the number of times I’ve featured it here). With swanky, glittering and star studded decor and an incredible menu, it makes for the most glamorous dinners – and so with LFW activities on the agenda, I thought it would be the perfect place to go to kick start the fashion festivities. Although DSTRKT is renowned for being a nightclub (many people were surprised when I said we had dinner there), I far prefer it as a restaurant – with the menu created by the wonderful Yaneff…
