Featured Marylebone Restaurants
. 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.
Scandinavian restaurant in Marylebone
34 Portman St - W1
Aggi Sverrisson’s “sublime”, Icelandic-inspired cuisine – in particular “a refreshing and very imaginative twist on fish” – again wins one of the survey’s highest food-ratings for his well-established flagship, just off Portman Square. To the odd reporter, the low-key space (actually part of a hotel, although you only find out when you look for the WC) can seem “dull and cold”, but most reporters like the fact that “there’s something a bit different about the style of the place”. “Very warm and welcoming” service only adds to its refreshingly un-poncy approach.
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.”
. Locanda Locatelli
Italian restaurant in Marylebone
Hyatt Regency, 8 Seymour St - W1
“A restaurant of the highest calibre, which manages to be elegant and unpretentious at the same time” – Giorgio Locatelli’s long-established Italian (which he, and wife Plaxy, opened in 2002) provides “a fantastic experience from start to finish”. The hotel environment it sits within can seem “rather sterile”, but the division of the moodily-lit dining room “breaks up what could be a large soulless space”, and the ambience still feels “buzzing after all these years”; boosted by its “impeccable” and “good-humoured” service. A few diners discern “a lack of wow factor” in the cuisine, but more common is a hymn of praise to “simple ingredients combined and cooked to perfection every time”.
Japanese restaurant in Marylebone
22 Harcourt St - W1
“Crazy combinations, truly awesome at times” continue to wow all who taste the “meticulous” sushi and other modernised Japanese dishes at this duo of venues – an “awkward and tired-looking basement” in Marylebone (under chef Tomonari Chiba) and a “much-cooler-than-the original” setting in Knightsbridge (under chef Masaki Sugisaki). “I’ve wandered all round the menu with friends, and each bite was terrific”.
