Isabel, Albemarle Street – Plush seating and architectural views of Royal Institute, close-by to newly opened Oswald’s (A new private members club from Robin Birley). For when you can’t squeeze onto the terrace at The Arts Club or Cecconi’s.
Sartoria, Savile Row/ New Burlington Street – A timeless classic from D&D restaurants. Where the suits lunch in the summer.
Babel House, Bruton Place – A new fun opening, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Bond Street.
Scott’s, Mount Street – A venue that simply doesn’t tire. Summer sundays should be spent here.
Elan Cafe, Park Lane – Cake and personalised cappuccino’s on the alfresco tables. As tricky to secure as a reservation at The Arts Club, at 8pm on a Friday.
Italian restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel, Park Lane – An often forgotten oasis, where one certainly doesn’t feel as though they are on Park Lane. An alternative for a long lunch in South Mayfair.
El Pirata, Down Street – Tapas and sunshine, in the heart of Mayfair; an all-time favourite.
The Mayfair Chippy, North Audley Street – It’s as if you are at the seaside- well, apart from the road traffic. Secure yourself that table for four and settle in for the afternoon/evening.
Roka, North Audley Street – The sun-drenched terrace makes the perfect setting for an escape from Selfridge’s.
London Marriott Park Lane will not be hosting their annual summer terrace this year. Watch this space for news later in the year about their winter terrace…
