I've been very bad at blogging about London restaurants. Now that I'm about to leave this amazing city I thought that I should change this and do as many posts as I can about those oh so many restaurants that truly deserve it. London has the most incredible restaurant scene. There's something for everyone and new, great restaurants are constantly popping up.
THE hot spot in London town at the moment is called The Chiltern Firehouse. It's located in my old neighbourhood Marylebone, which has up to now been lacking of this type of restaurants despite its central location and close proximity to Mayfair, which is home to many of the best restaurants in London.
I went to The Chiltern Firehouse for the first time last week. I loved it as soon as I stepped inside. Such a cool venue; what used to actually be a fire station has been beautifully decorated creating an incredible atmosphere. The food certainly didn't disappoint either! Oh and the waitresses and the waiters must be the hottest in town! Very New York.
The biggest reason for me to not normally blog about the restaurants I frequently dine in is the terrible pictures... When you photograph food (or anything) in low light, with your iPhone, using a flash the result is always plain awful. So I do cringe looking at these yellow toned, grainy pictures but I have no choice as dragging my huge DSLR to dinners just wouldn't be convenient or even appropriate. But let's try and overlook that. This was my incredibly tasty octopus starter.
And this was my iberico main. Again AMAZING.
The kitchen is open so you can see the staff hard at work creating delicious dishes.
I can't recommend a restaurant highly enough. However unless you know someone or someone who knows someone remember to book your table about two months in advance! And that's no joke!
