Chiltern Firehouse

With the Chateau Marmont under his belt, it’s no wonder that André Balazs turned his attentions to British gastronomy for his next challenge. Welcome then, to the Chiltern Firehouse – all high ceilings and sexy lighting in the heart of fashionable Marylebone, with the added bonus of the lesser-spotted al fresco dining, a real coup when in the swankiest of postcodes.

The ever-so-fashionable and stylish dishes are on the menu from acclaimed Portuguese Michelin-starred chef, Nuno Mendes; crab-stuffed doughnuts with coral dusting, iberico pork with courgette and shiso, peat smoked short rib and smoked eel teriyaki all delight their stylish patrons. Their ever-changing menu re-imagines the classics with an underlying American influence (the maple bourbon sweet potato sides that give them away).

And when visiting, be sure to dress up and look smart. The staff here are all dressed in a uniform of pale blue which doesn’t do great for one’s ego when most of them look like they’ve walked straight off the catwalk. But, this is the place to be seen, so if you book now you could be in by 2018 (or book for a weekday lunch and you might see a table this side of 2017).
