Forget your typical lunch-on-the-go, when it came to compiling our guide for where the London fashion crowd love to eat, we wanted the hottest, buzziest design spots ever. Roberta Benteler, founder of the gorgeous London-based fashion website Avenue 32 (click here to visit), was a natural choice. Spotting design talent is her 9-5 and with a gorgeous wardrobe that ranges from killer Chanel looks to the freshest British design talent, we asked her to share the places she knows people go to see-and-be-seen. Exclusively for The Chosen Club, here are the top 10 tables on her radar right now...
Petersham Nurseries – by far the best place to get away from hectic London life for a while. You will spot many familiar faces in fashion there on a Sunday for lunch in the beautiful green houses, followed by a walk in Richmond Park. The perfect wind down after Fashion Week.
La Petite Maison
La Petite Maison – this very fashionable French restaurant is one of my favourite places to eat, located in a little mews not far from Bond Street and the Caunnaught, it serves divine rustic French food designed to share.
Umu – simply the best Japanese in London.
A new addition to the London restaurant scene and already a firm favourite due to Jaques Garcia’s opulent furnishings, much like the Hotel Costes, Paris, one of his most famous projects. The Peking duck is also to die for.
One of the best places in London for a breakfast meeting or afternoon tea. You will be sure to spot fashion people in there between fashion shows!
Sketch – remains a firm favourite due to its eccentric pink furnishings, also making it a go to location for fashion events and photo shoots.
Located at Somerset House this is not only a real highlight thanks to Skye Gyngell’s talents and beautiful furnishings, but is also conveniently located right next door to the British Fashion Council.
Still the best place for celeb spotting and people watching.
Based at the Dorchester Hotel, this is one of Kate Moss’ favorite places for a dinner party!
One of the best fish restaurants in town, just opposite from Celine on Mount Street!
