Covent Garden & Holborn

Heliot Steakhouse

Fillet steak is medium rare on the nose, as is the larger sirloin steak we also order. Both graduate in colou from a blackened exterior through to a plumby red.

The Ship Tavern

The menu is based around traditional British fare, and a steak and ale pie full of stewed meat and thick, unctuous gravy, and topped with a lid of buttery pastry reminds us why this is such a classic.

Frenchie

Frenchie Covent Garden is the London outpost of Gregory and Marie Marchand’s original Frenchie restaurant, located in the Paris second arrondissement…

Rosewood London

The philosophy behind the Slow Food & Living market and brunch means that there is a sense of community, history and an individual story, and delicious, ethically produced goods.

Le Restaurant de Paul

Bakeries are my sanctuary, and I don’t think I’ve ever tried a PAUL’s that I didn’t immediately love, stealing away with a fresh loaf of olive bread and a circle of soft cheese.

Five Guys

The burgers are tepid – the meat is a passionless patty of miscellaneous cow, set in a wad of hardened processed cheese in a characterless white bun. Don’t do it.
