Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

London

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.
Maison Bertaux
Maison Bertaux is a hippy Soho hangout full of character and characters, not least the eccentric staff as well as strong coffees and teas.
E Pellicci
Chinese Restaurant 1997
Simple Cantonese staples populate the menu at this kitsch Soho canteen.
The Botanist
A Sloane Square staple, The Botanist has become the after-drinks haunt of choice for local luvvies and the daytime hangout of ladies-what-lunch.
Blueprint Café
The Design Museum's restaurant has an astounding view and a daily-changing menu.
The Balcon
Set in the Sofitel St James Hotel, The Balcon serves up traditional British afternoon tea with a sophisticated Parisian twist.!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Times; panose-1:2 0 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0; mso-font-charset:0; mso-
Viet Grill
A smartly refurbished option on this renowned stretch, this Vietnamese experience is superior.
Tokyo Diner
This dining room is simply furnished and offers a dependable array of Japanese dishes.
Maroush I
Luscious late-night Lebanese is served with a smile at the flagship Maroush.
The Troubadour Cafe
With arguably the best burger in town on its menu, it's hardly surprising that the Troubadour Café is wildly popular with Kensington's cool kids. Live music and the occasional appearance of Keira Knightley add to its cachet. yEventWat
