London

Villandry
The media set can't get enough of Villandry, and it's not hard to see why with a French-inspired menu that caters to serious foodies and simple clean interiors.
The National Cafe
The Dining Rooms in the National Gallery and the Portrait Gallery next door provide surprisingly stylish spaces for slap-up lunches and afternoon tea.
Comptoir Gascon
This Clerkenwell deli/bistro hybrid is perfect for meat lovers and Francophiles alike.
Gallery Mess Cafe/Bar
Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson are powerful influences by themselves so marry together their talents and the results are rather spectacular.
Dehesa
This small tapas bar in Soho is beautifully laid out and offers small portions of tasty morsels just light enough for pre-clubbing sustenance.
Fernandez & Wells
Divided up into three separate venues Fernandez & Wells Food & Wine Bar offers sweet and savoury delights - as well as damn good coffee - in the heart of Soho.
Tom’s Deli
Despite owning a culinary empire Tom Conran's most casual outpost - Tom's Deli - retains a casual family-run vibe.

The Parlour at Sketch
A byword for style. the Parlour at Sketch attracts the seriously overdressed for flouncy breakfasts and business brunches; nearby Bond Street beckons for a spot of shopping before returning to the office. =display:no"
Claridge’s Foyer
Claridge's is perfect for those seeking a posh pitstop; indulge in bar snacks galore - the tempura prawns on skewers are highly recommended - while washing it all down with tea or Champagne. We know what we prefer. =",Since the end of the 19th century
Bibendum Oyster Bar
Bibendum Oyster Bar serves sophisticated snacks and attracts a similarly sophisticated clientele. Wash it all down with a glass of champers.
