Featured Marylebone Restaurants
1. Boxcar Bar & Kitchen Steaks & grills restaurant in Marylebone 23 New Quebec St - W1H
“Top burgers…”, “good-value and tasty steaks…”, “good Sunday roast…” – such are the attractions of this all-day Marylebone butcher, deli and steakhouse (part of the Cubitt House group).
2. Clarette French restaurant in Marylebone 44 Blandford St - W1U
These “refitted pub premises” are in their second year as a Marylebone wine bar, brought to us by a part of the family which owns world-famous claret, Château Margaux. Winning solid ratings for its “smart small-plates of French bistro cooking” and “great service” – it’s “all very nice, but too expensive” to attract much feedback… unless you’re tempted by a glass of 1999 vintage Margaux for £160.
3. Les 110 de Taillevent French restaurant in Marylebone 16 Cavendish Square - W1
“You will never get bored, although you might get drunk!” at this London scion of Paris’s famous Taillevent group, where “you can try 110 different types of superb wine by the glass”. Set in “an attractive former private banking hall” – on the opposite side of Cavendish Square from the back of Oxford Street’s John Lewis – its “staff are extremely well-drilled and make everything effortless and smooth”. However, “the total cost of a meal takes it out of brasserie territory”, while the “seasonal French cuisine”, though “enjoyable”, doesn’t always seem in keeping with the level of ambition that the final bill might imply.
4. 108 Brasserie British, Modern restaurant in Marylebone 108 Marylebone Ln - W1
2019 Review: “Useful for the area” – this very “pleasant” and attractive hotel dining room at the top of Marylebone Lane, wins all-round praise for its brasserie fare, much of it from the Josper grill.
5. Fucina Italian restaurant in Marylebone 26 Paddington Street - W1
Kurt Zdesar – who has been involved with such illustrious names as Nobu, Hakkasan, Chotto Matte and Ping Pong – and Stefano Stecca (most recently executive chef at Toto’s) opened this “spacious” and glamorous-looking Italian yearling in late-2018 in Marylebone, with a focus on organic ingredients. Early-days feedback was limited, but some “delicious” if pricey food is reported, and the main quibble about the interior is that its moody lighting can leave it “rather dark”.
6. Ottolenghi Mediterranean restaurant in Marylebone 63 Marylebone Lane - W1U
“A feast for the eyes and always fresh, delicious” and full of “interesting flavour” – the “unusual salads” and habit-forming cakes at Yotam Ottolenghi’s starkly decorated café chain: an ongoing success-story particularly beloved of brunching yummy-mums and Guardian-reading types (“is this a restaurant or a cult?… some of the clientele on my trip seemed beyond parody”). “It’s only the food that makes it worth it” though – branches are “super-busy and never enjoyable” – and, given the prices, a visit can “feel like daylight robbery”.
7. Italian Greyhound Italian restaurant in Marylebone 62 Seymour Street - W1
On the former site as Bernardi's (RIP) and relaunched as a more casual place - inspired by Italian neighbourhood bars - by the same team; the Italian small plates menu comes from from ex-Dinings SW3 and Petersham Nurseries chef Yohei Furuhashi.
8. Junsei Japanese restaurant in Marylebone 132 Seymour Place - W1H
Eight skewers and sides for £48 is the blow-out omakase option at this Japanese June 2021 newcomer in Marylebone. But you can also order individually and there are sharing plates available too. The PR tells us that the name means ‘pure’ – apparently a reference to the white wood used to fuel the robata.
9. Roux at the Landau, The Langham British, Modern restaurant in marylebone 1c Portland Pl - W1
“Smooth-running and elegant” – the recently-adopted, more modern and svelte style of operation (no tablecloths, and a new central bar for counter-style dining) is suiting this Roux-branded dining room: part of a luxurious five-star hotel, opposite Broadcasting House. Despite the harder-edged look, the ambience remains “delightful” and the cuisine is “first class”, with the option of eating à la carte, or from the six-course tasting menu. “Spot-on service”, in particular, featured in numerous reports this year.
10. Twist Fusion restaurant in Marylebone 42 Crawford St - W1
“Very surprisingly delicious, every mouthful – way beyond expectations” – Eduardo Tuccillo’s tucked-away Marylebone venture (on the site that ages ago was Garbo’s, RIP) is arguably “very underrated due to its location” in a “so-loud, as it’s so-small” two-floor space. But while it feels “too casual to be a very special night out, the food and service can’t be beaten”: “a different approach with tapas that aren’t just Spanish” delivering “some inspired food combinations”. “On the pricey side, but consistently well worth it.”
