Cooking up a storm in Mayfair

Mayfair is certainly a great place for foodies to visit, so it’s no surprise that celebrity chef Nigella Lawson was recently spotted strolling the streets with her husband, art collector Charles Saatchi. Nigella wasn’t drinking or dining on this occasion – the pair spent some time browsing the prestigious shops in the area, including Christian Louboutin, creator of the famous red-soled shoes that adorn the feet of stars around the globe – but there’s no denying that Mayfair is a London hotspot for a number of prestigious chefs.

Gordon Ramsay has two restaurants in the area. The first is tucked away inside world-famous hotel Claridges and serves everything from a traditional Sunday roast to more unusual dishes, like duck rillettes with watercress and cornichon salad. The second restaurant, Maze, is located on the bustling Grosvenor Square, and is dedicated to serving up a fusion of Fresh cuisine with Asian influences, offering a fresh and exciting take on conventional combinations.

Theo Randall, a former chef at the renowned River Café, also has an establishment in Mayfair. His self-named restaurant presents rustic Italian meals in a simple yet sophisticated way – in the words of the chef himself, “unfussy, yet utterly delicious.”

If you’re in the Mayfair area, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to drinking and dining. Why not give one of these incredible restaurants a try for yourself?
