Food & Restaurants – Comte des Cierges
Celebrate London’s world class cuisine at this year’s Taste of London event taking place from the 21st to the 24th June. Forty of London’s top restaurants will gather in Regent’s Park for the most gastronomic and glamorous feast yet. Old, classic favourites and trendy new restaurants alike will be there accompanied by a boutique food market of 200 premium brands and artisan producers, chef demos and foodie entertainment for this four day alfresco spectacular.
If you haven’t heard about 34, the latest restaurant to open in the prestigious Caprice Holdings portfolio – then you really should feel ashamed of yourself. It’s been the buzzword of London’s media for the last few months serving up some strong opinions from critics, journalists, socialites, businessmen and Royalty alike.
A welcome addition to the trendy new St Martin’s Courtyard development, SUDA Thai serves up cuisine that is as contemporary as the development itself. Set over two floors with the added addition of alfresco space, this restaurant is as stylish as they come, with the floor-to-ceiling glass front creating a particularly bright modern dining space. The stark contrast between the dark feature walls and light flooring is further opened up by the high ceilings with exposed structural steels and an industrious looking ventilation system that runs along it. Low hanging lights over the individual tables provide just enough intimacy for couples seeking a more secluded dining experience whilst a scattering of plants break the otherwise entirely open-plan space and keep the Feng Shui conscience at ease.
Located just around the corner from Piccadilly Circus, Assaggetti is right in the heart of the West End’s Theatre circuit and directly opposite the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Whilst I do not want to pigeon-hole it as Theatre going restaurant, it certainly does lend itself well to being the perfect pre-Theatre destination for nibbles and nourishment.
