Turkish Restaurant
$$
“Kazan – Turkish upmarket Kazan is an upmarket Turkish restaurant, but the food is as generous and hearty as its less extravagant cousins. The décor is beautifully opulent, with black furnishings and plenty of red and gold accents, while the menu is inspired by the food produced in the Sultans’ kitchens from the Ottoman era, but with a distinctly modern feel. 93-94 Wilton Rd, Lillington and Longmoore Gardens, London SW1V 1DW £££ ”

Chinese Restaurant

“A Wong Upmarket Chinese eatery for dim sum & a 10-course "Taste of China" menu showcasing regional cuisine. The food that he cooks here explores the regions of China rather than just focusing on the Cantonese food that most UK Chinese restaurants serve. His Michelin star is well earned. 70 Wilton Rd, London SW1V 1DE £££ ”

Gastropub
$$$
“*The Thomas Cubitt – Upmarket stylish pub Named after the great Belgravia architect - is a perfect paneled pub, enclosed by French windows on two sides which open out on to the pretty Elizabeth Street and the huddles of tables outside, adding to the light, airy feel. The menu is focused on unfussy British country house cuisine, with occasional nods to traditional French food. Crisp crackling, slow-cooked Sunday roasts, fresh seafood, chocolate sponge, and lots of seasonal game and cheeses are the mainstays. The dining room prices are eye-watering (not surprisingly given the location, and the stunning building), but the short bar menu is excellent value, and it packs out at weekends. ”

Scottish Restaurant
$$$
“Just the other side of Victoria station is this traditional Scottish restaurant and bar, housed in a Regency townhouse complete with a cigar terrace. This place oozes class, with gleaming mahogany and red tones dominating the colour scheme, emulating the feel of an old-fashioned gentlemen’s club. There are multiple separate restaurants and bars within the building, with elegant private dining rooms to hire. As is only fitting, whisky is the order of the night, with Boisdale boasting a collection of rare Scottish malts, alongside a host of enticing cocktails and wines. The cherry on the top of each room is the nightly tunes of live jazz.”
