So prepare to drool in anticipation as I reveal juicy snippets of these restaurants’ tastiest bits.

St James’s Hotel and Club

St James Hotel Dining

Food – Seasonal and contemporary menus are inspired by classic French cuisine. Expect dishes such as veal sweetbread wrapped in Parma ham, roasted lemon and garlic, and mousseline sauce.

Ambience – Vibrant shades of gold are used in the décor and furnishings at Seven Park Place. With only nine tables, the setting is intimate, elegant and romantic.

Hospitality – The friendly, attentive and knowledgeable service match the standards of the exceptional food.

Awards – One Michelin star, 4 AA Rosettes

The Arch

Food – Classic cuisine is given a contemporary tweak. Lively, seasonal flavours combine to bring you simple yet delicious food, and the stone baked oven pizzas embrace the flavours of Italy.

Ambience – Smooth and stylish with a touch of glamour. Wooden floors and colourful flowers add charm to the casual atmosphere.

Hospitality – The team here are polite, flexible and as cool as the setting itself (but that’s not to say they aren’t on the ball).

Awards – Toptable Winner, Diners’ Choice 2014

Baglioni Hotel

Food – Fresh ingredients straight from Italy are given a creative twist to bring you authentic Italian flavours. Menu highlights include aubergine parmagiana and wild turbot with artichokes ad spicy sausage.

Ambience – Possibly one of the most sleek restaurant settings in London. Taking inspiration from Italian design, luxurious gold and grey velvet armchairs sit below Murano glass candelabras. Baglioni promises a chic and relaxed dining experience.

Hospitality – Attentive, amiable yet discreet.

Tartufo at No. 11 Cadogan Gardens

No.11 Cadogen Gardens Dining

Food – Complex flavours create boldly imaginative and impressive dishes. One of the stars of the menu is the Highland venison and roasted pumpkin, celeriac and truffles puree.

Ambience – Elegant furnishings make up an intimate and sophisticated setting. Because it is in a seemingly secret location in the basement of the hotel, it has a totally exclusive feel.

Hospitality – Subtle yet attentive, and very charming.
