Shanghai Noir

SHANGHAI NOIR SET MENU -3 Courses · £35 per perso and 1 other offer

A stunning Indo-Chinese Brasserie located in the Grade II listed old Westminster Fire Station, Shanghai Noir is a 1930s-inspired sultry spot covered in dark furnishings, ornate chandeliers and Asian-style artwork. In this classy eatery, tuck into a small plates-based menu of sesame garlic shrimp, Desi chow mein noodles and kung pao mushrooms, paired with refined cocktails like the lychee-infused White Dragon.

Prelude By Oriole

Building up the anticipation for their permanent reopening later this year, Prelude by Oriole is a speakeasy-style pop-up giving us a little taste of things to come. Situated in Covent Garden, this sophisticated spot promises live piano music every single night, as well as a selection of delicious Nikkei-inspired small plates such as oysters with chilli, chickpea chips dipped in aioli or roasted pumpkin. While sharing these tasty bites, sip all sorts of premium spirits and cocktails - we recommend the Agua Blanca for whisky lovers.


Situated in Mayfair, Miro offers a unique fine dining experience. Not only is it beautifully designed, with neon signs, intimate lighting and quirky wall fixtures, but it also boasts quite the menu. Think Wagyu ribeye steaks, roast bone marrow brulee and a salted popcorn souffle.

The MAINE Mayfair

A New England Brasserie with a bucketload of style, The MAINE Mayfair is as stunning as it is exceptional in the kitchen. Make your way over for droolworthy dishes, from Dover sole to sirloin steaks, whether enjoyed as a candle-lit supper or with mates and entertainment.

Walkers of Whitehall

Visitors to Walkers of Whitehall will certainly be impressed by both the restaurants ambience and decor. As soon as you step through the door, the sleek, simple furnishings and tranquil painted walls gives the entire venue a refreshing feel. Adding to that, the diverse food menu is made up of both exqusite brunch dishes and brilliant dinner treats. Why not sample the Cumin Leg of Lamb or the bavette Steak served with chimichurri at this cosy resturant in the heart of Westminster. 

Arros QD

If you're hunting for Fitzrovia restaurants, ArrosQD is just the place. This Spanish fine dining spot combines fire cooking techniques with Valencian classics and swanky interiors. Better yet? There's a range of tasting menus to suit different budgets and level of indulgence.

If you're looking for indulgent Italian eats in gorgeous surrounds, then make your way to Bocconcino Soho, found on Great Marlborough Street. This decadent spot is full of marble and quirky design, as well as a menu full of Mediterranean goodness. We're talking aubergine parmigiana, truffle and prawn ravioli or wild boar tagliatelle, and if you swing by at lunchtime then you can even bag three courses for £29.
