Featured Piccadilly Restaurants
1. San Carlo Cicchetti Italian restaurant in Piccadilly 215 Piccadilly - W1
San Carlo Group opened Cicchetti at 215 Piccadilly, London in July 2012.
A chic all-day dining venue with a buzzing atmosphere, Cicchetti (pronounced Chi-KET-tee), serves freshly prepared regional small plates typically eaten in bars in Venice. It is a traditional relaxed style...
2. Brasserie Zédel French restaurant in Piccadilly 20 Sherwood St - W1
“Sumptuous and gilded”, Corbin & King’s “amazing” (listed) Art Deco basement is reminiscent of the grandest Parisian brasseries, and in three short years has become a West End landmark. OK, the realisation of the huge Gallic menu is extremely “pedestrian”, but compensation is provided by the “really efficient” service and – mindful of all the grandeur – prices that are “astonishing value” for somewhere a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus.
3. Kanada-Ya Japanese restaurant in Piccadilly 3 Panton St - SW1
“The hoards queuing outside know they’re in for a treat” at these cheap, “truly genuine”, “cheek-by-jowl” ramen newcomers in the West End (outposts of a chain originating in Fukuoka, in southern Japan); “the broth is so rich, the meat so unctuous, you’ll finish the bowl, even if you feel you’re about to burst!”
4. The Keeper's House, Royal Academy British, Traditional restaurant in Piccadilly Royal Academy Of Arts, Piccadilly - W1
“It’s handy when visiting an exhibition”, but many reporters “expected more” of this “prestigious” basement two-year-old (“tucked away” below the RA) – the food “goes from excellent to meh”, service can be “novice”, and overall it can all seem “fairly ordinary”.
5. MASH Steakhouse Steaks & grills restaurant in Piccadilly 77 Brewer St - W1
No-one doubts the quality of the meat at this “swanky” steakhouse, “deep underground” near Piccadilly Circus; it’s so “overpriced” it can seem “average” however, and the “cavernous” interior is “too large” and “brash”.
6. Savini at Criterion Italian restaurant in Piccadilly 224 Piccadilly - W1
Possibly London's most beautiful restaurant, this extraordinary neo-Byzantine dining room (formerly the Criterion) was resurrected by the Gatto family at the end of 2015. The Criterion – where mediocre food always played second fiddle to dazzling decor – closed last year after its parent company Vox went into administration.
7. Chop Shop Steaks & grills restaurant in Piccadilly 66 Haymarket - SW1
2014 Review: In the heart of Theatreland, a new steakhouse concept from an outfit based in NYC; it might be useful enough pre-show, but our early-days visit hinted at no positive reason actively to seek it out.
8. Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Fish & seafood restaurant in Piccadilly 13 Coventry St - W1
Now (finally!) open in the former Planet Hollywood premises near Piccadilly Circus, the first UK branch of an American chain loosely based on the characters in ‘Forrest Gump’; if successful, more will follow – you have been warned!
