apricity
Mayfair, Belgravia
68 Duke Street, Mayfair, London W1K 6JU

Apricity is the latest restaurant from Chantelle Nicholson (previously behind Tredwells). Here, they have a menu that's veg-forward (but not exclusively) and have a strong eye on seasonality and low-waste. Expect some exceptionally crafted dishes here.

acme
East London
Abbot Street Car Park, London, E8 3DP

Acme Food Cult is a team up between chefs Andrew Clarke and Daniel Watkins and as the name suggests, it's all about cooking over fire on an impressive grill. Right next to 40FT Brewery, expect plenty of beer in the cooking too.

Caravel is a restaurant on a barge, floating on the canal in Hoxton. In charge are brothers Lorcan and Fin Spiteri who are in charge of the food and drink respectively. Expect the kind of food from Lorcan "that he and Fin enjoyed growing up".

27 - 31 Clerkenwell Close, Farringdon, London EC1R 0AT

This neighbourhood cafe in Clerkenwell is blessed with a hidden courtyard terrace which is a good-to-know alfresco option in this area. As for the food, they serve up ethically-sourced organic produce taking inspiration from both European and Californian cafes and a small regularly changing menu.

green
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
29 Clerkenwell Green, Farringdon, London EC1R 0DU

In a quiet part of Clerkenwell, The Green comes from the same people who also run The Culpeper in Shoreditch. Either take it easy in the pub downstairs or head up to the first floor restaurant and you'll find the pub serving modern British food from an ever changing menu. Also look out for a Sunday lunch where they concentrate on Beef Wellington and one key roast dish.

Critic reviews - total score 7 out of 10

This is the original Caravan, where they built a reputation of creating some of the finest brunches in town. Having their own coffee roastery means the coffees here are second to none.

Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden
55 Great Portland Street, London W1W 7LQ

This is the main restaurant upstairs at The George pub in Fitzrovia. It comes from JKS (the people behind Gymkhana) and Kitchen Table's James Knappett, who is behind the menu. Expect a much more elevated approach to a traditional pub menu.

6-8 All Saints Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 1HH

104 Chepstow Rd, London W2 5QS

This is one of the smallest fine-dining restaurants in London, run by chef Richard Wilkins (ex-Petrus and Waterside Inn) fitting in just six tables for a maximum of 12 diners at any time. If you manage to grab one of those precious seats, you can expect a modern French menu.

The kind of restaurant you're as likely to find yourself sitting next to the Queen as you are a Cork Street art dealer. Run by the ebullient Gavin Rankin and tucked away in a mews off Berkeley Square, it looks like it's been here forever rather than being just a teenager in restaurant terms.

orasay
West London
31 Kensington Park Rd, London W11 2EU

Jackson Boxer (also of Brunswick House) took inspiration from the Scottish islands and highlands for this West London seafood restaurant which has become one of Notting Hill's best.

Emily Roux is the latest member of the Roux family with a successful restaurant. She joined up with her husband, Diego Ferrari - former Head Chef at Le Gavroche - to run this restaurant that's part French, part Italian. The menu has a fine dining feel, but presented in a more laid-back setting, with courses split into sections like "curious", "robust" and "greedy" (which, yes, is the dessert section).

Wolfgang Puck made his fortune serving gourmet pizzas to Hollywood's elite. It's currently his only European restaurant - part of the Dorchester Collection. Steaks are the focus here as well as plenty of interesting salads for the stars to push around their plates.

Pierre Gagnaire's uber chic Mayfair restaurant is certainly for special occasions - it's one of the most expensive meals in town. There are multiple dining rooms within the building, all with very different looks and menus. There are also incredibly instagrammable loos.

A London institution, having been around since 1916, this Piccadilly spot has thrived under Richard Corrigan's ownership. Whether you're perched up at the counter having oysters from some of the best shuckers in the world or upstairs in the more formal dining room, you'll get amazing seafood here.

nook
North London
220 St Paul's Rd, Highbury, London N1 2LL

The Nook comes from Angus and Lale Oztek-Pook who have experience at Zucca, Bernardis and Oklava among others. The food is described as "contemporary European with a Turkish twist" and is paired with a winelist of sustainable, organic, biodynamic and minimal intervention wines. It works as a deli too, so there's lots to take away.

Caprice Holdings - the people behind The Ivy restaurants, Sexy Fish and lots more - are behind this in-your-face restaurant at Selfridges. And, like Sexy Fish, this has a big old Damen Hirst installation front and centre.

This Mediterranean restaurant comes from Xavier Rousset. Expect a Med menu with specific Italian influences and, as with all of his restaurants, the wine is a big deal. There are over 250 wines and champagnes on the list to work your way through.

Originally launched by Corbin and King, this restaurant is intended to be evocative of early 20th Century Vienna so the menu has a distinct Austrian bent with schnitzels, strudels and more the order of the day.

Originally launched by Xavier Rousset and Agnar Sverrisson (who are also behind Texture), this is a "wine workshop and kitchen" on Marylebone Lane. Once part of a group, it's now a solo wine bar with European food in Marylebone.

daffy
Shoreditch, Clerkenwell
70-74 City Rd, Old Street, London EC1Y 2BJ

This is the Old Street restaurant for Richard Corrigan, the top Irish chef who's also behind Bentley's in Mayfair. Expect a menu that has a modern European base mixed in with various Irish influences. There's an excellent pub downstairs too, in the shape of Gibney's.

Small plates, sharers and snacks are on the menu here, at this venture from the team who were originally in Hackney. Now they're Shoreditch-based with a more laid back venture that features their own Vermouth and wines.

Chef Tomos Parry's solo venture was an instant hit after opening (and there's an offshoot alfresco version too). It features a mix of cooking on fire, Welsh and Basque cuisine, and a big focus on wine. It doesn't hurt that the dining room is quite lovely too.

Petersham Nurseries has opened in Covent Garden with two restaurants. La Goccia focuses on Italian aperitivo while the main restaurant is The Petersham, with the same approach to slow food cooking as the original in Richmond.
