This elegant Italian restaurant close to the Saatchi Gallery prides itself on seasonal ingredients and thoughtful, imaginative dishes. But its scene stealer is the large, heated terrace overlooking Duke of York Square filled with plants and twinkling lights. It’s a real beauty tucked away from traffic, an enviable place to spend an evening meandering through dishes, like antipasti Cornish diver scallops with cannellini beans and rosemary velouté. Try the lobster spaghettini with tomato, basil and chilli, too, but do leave room for the melt-in-the-mouth tiramisu. Manicomio is an authentic Italian escape in the heart of London.
Step into this plush basement restaurant behind Sloane Square for some of the best Indian food in London. Kahani’s chef is Peter Jones, former head chef of Tamarind, the first Indian restaurant to hold a Michelin star. Kahani is his solo venture, using his mother’s cooking tips and tricks to turn seasonal British ingredients into his signature flavour-filled sharing plates. Vegan and vegetarian tasting menus sit alongside à la carte dishes like smoked octopus and shrimp salad with fresh turmeric, snap peas and grapefruit. Enjoy sharing plates with friends and discover new culinary delights just steps away from Cadogan Hall.
If you’re looking for cheap restaurants, Sloane Square and the neighbouring streets aren’t typically the place to find them, but Vardo is more affordable than many. In a futuristic circular pavilion in Duke of York Square, the team behind Caravan has created a ‘no boundaries’ evening dining experience, using ingredients from around the globe. Try the garam masala labneh with fenugreek-chilli butter, spiced chickpeas and flatbread, or the finger-licking homemade pork and fennel sausage pizza. Richly spiced and in a unique setting, Vardo promises a memorable meal that won’t break the bank.
Wulf & Lamb, Chelsea
This plant-based restaurant is all about comfort food without compromise for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In a bright modern building over two floors with alfresco dining in the summer, this place challenges the notion that tasty food has to include animal products. The chilli ‘non’ carne is earthy deliciousness in a bowl and the green coconut curry with sweet potato mash and jasmine rice spices is an aromatic wonder. For vegan food, Chelsea’s Wulf & Lamb avoids the pretentious, leaning in on big, hearty flavours that ensure you won’t leave hungry like the wolf.
