The Experimental Group are Gallic gods of hospitality, with a collection of ineffably chic cocktail bars, hotels and restaurants under their belt. Their boutique Henrietta Hotel occupies an elegant townhouse in Covent Garden, and the ground-floor eatery, Da Henrietta, makes an ideal pre-theatre pitstop. Expect flavoursome takes on traditional dishes from the west coast of Italy, snaking from Liguria to Lazio, Campania to Calabria and a few foodie hotspots in between –featuring grilled bread with ricotta and black truffle, pumpkin ravioli and bucatini with guanciale on the menu.

There are – count ’em – seven restaurants in the colossal food hall at this bank-turned-hotel in the City of London. And, though they’re all housed in the magnificent art deco atrium, flanked by columns of verdite and overhung by enormous chandeliers, each has its own distinct personality. You can find American diner classics at the Electric, traditional afternoon teas at brilliantly British Millie’s, superfood salads at Malibu Kitchen and poke bowls at Kaya.

Inside the sleek, cantilevered steel structure that houses Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, you’ll naturally find a namesake restaurant serving up chef Matsuhisa’s signatures. However, if that’s a bit out of your price range, head downstairs to find Nami, a supper bar that matches Nobu cocktails with plates of Japanese street food – think confit pork belly lettuce wraps, rice bowls and spicy shrimp tempura. Anime artwork is projected on the walls, and there are kabuki DJs – mysterious, masked figures – on weekends.

There are just 10 bedrooms in this playful Pimlico hotel and, true to its name, you’ll find a gallery’s worth of quirky artwork decorating the exposed brick walls. The buzzing, all-day Clubhouse restaurant is the place for everything from green juices and superfood salads to Bellinis and buttermilk-chicken burgers. After dinner, mingle with West London locals in the speakeasy-style cocktail den downstairs.

At this glitzy grill, it would be easy for the food to pale in comparison to the setting: ornate cornicing adorns the 18ft (5.5m) ceilings, colossal chandeliers coruscate and every inch of the walls is covered in paintings. But the British-with-a-twist menu at talked-about Berners Tavern more than holds its own – think lobster mac and cheese served in a copper pot, grass-fed steaks from a Scottish estate, and a Dingley Dell pork chop as big as your head. Plus, don’t let the champagne trolley pass you by…

    Big, brash and totally unapologetic, Decimo brings serious swagger to King’s Cross. The Spanish-Mexican restaurant sits at the top of the Standard Hotel – as you might guess from the name, that’s on the 10th floor – and the 1970s-inspired interiors are almost impossible not to Instagram: there’s velvet, rattan and cacti as far as the eye can see. Start with croquetas, tacos or the caviar-laden tortilla, before moving on to mezcal cocktails at the bar.

    Anthony Demetre is a chef’s chef – his restaurant, Wild Honey, inside the Sofitel St James, is consistently included in those lists of where the cognoscenti go to find proper French fare with the freshest of produce. Critics rave about the on-the-money service, which masters the fine line between informal and attentive, and the fashion aficionados love the lofty ceilings, blue-velvet banquettes and gleaming brass everywhere.

    If you’re into bottomless brunch, Thames views and al fresco afternoons, make a stop at Sea Containers on the South Bank to soak up the atmosphere. On weekends, choose from unlimited prosecco or bloody marys, or upgrade to unlimited Laurent Perrier, and pair the booze with a smoked salmon bagel, a buffalo mozzarella flatbread or their famous Sea Co cheeseburger, as you watch the world go by from this sunny spot by the river.
