Bluebird Chelsea

350 King’s Road, Chelsea, SW3 5UU

Brunch, coffee and fine dining, Bluebird Chelsea has it all. As featured in the ever ostentatious Made in Chelsea, celebs and London elites can’t get enough of the luxurious restaurant and courtyard terrace. The restaurant's ethos centres around sociable dining so expect small plates and sharing dishes for a fun meal out with friends sat beneath wild flowers and abundant greenery. The courtyard is populated with eager guests even in the winter months which goes some way to showcasing just how popular this top London celebrity hot spot really is.

Perhaps not one of the best celebrity restaurants London has to offer for vegetarians, the menu specialises in meat and fish; full of light, fresh starters, varied main cuisine and grill options. Classics with a twist; we recommend the crispy duck salad to start and lobster spaghetti to follow paired with a selection of house favourites from their exhaustive wine list.

The Botanist

Get in with the it-crowd at The Botanist: a firm favourite of London’s A-listers, renowned for its unique cocktail concoctions and elegant European menu. You’ve probably spotted its floral entrance on your strolls round the capital, or perhaps even taken a few Instagram photos of it, but if you haven’t had the chance to head in yet, it’s high time you did. Just one browse of their online gallery is enough to tantalise your taste buds and tempt you inside to see for yourself why this is one of the most well-known London celebrity hot spots.

This family run establishment has a penchant for sustainability and sources all their produce in Great Britain making it one of the greenest celebrity restaurants London hosts. They’re able to fill your plate with seasonal goodness; from rare beef to daily caught fish. Enjoy their pre-theatre menu if you have an evening booking on Shaftesbury Avenue, or their brunch menu for an indulgent weekend light bite.

No. Fifty Cheyne

50 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, SW3 5LR

Set Thames-side in the heart of Old Chelsea, No. Fifty Cheyne offers the finest seasonal meat and fish all sourced locally. Drink like an A-lister in the ruby red cocktail bar and dine like royalty in the classically elegant restaurant. We’ve heard whispers around London that Cheyne rustle up the ‘best Sunday roast in London’ so why deprive yourself the chance of tasting it? With accolades in GQ, The Guardian and Tatler to name but a few, it’s easy to see why so many flock to its opulent rooms.

Head Chef Iain Smith is a wizard in the kitchen: combining seasonal flavours to create world-class dishes. The menu is tastefully minimal with light dishes for À La Carte and sumptuous suppers for Sunday lunch: there’s worse problems to have than not knowing what to order at your new favourite London celebrity hot spot.

Sexy Fish

Berkeley Square House, Mayfair, W1J 6BR

Who doesn’t love a London restaurant that serves as not only an excellent eatery, but as somewhere to view amazing art pieces? Many of the best London celebrity hot spots feature magnificent artistic displays by some of the most sought after artists around and Sexy Fish is no different. Adorned with Damien Hirst, Frank Gehry and Michael Roberts, this high-brow sushi joint is a treat for all the senses. We won’t try to describe the cutting-edge décor as it really is a see it to believe it kind of place: just imagine an Asian fusion of light, design and texture that resembles an extravagant movie set.

Treat yourself to a taste of the world’s largest Japanese Whiskey collection in the late night bar and sample the dynamic flavours on offer in the Japanese inspired menu. As the name would suggest, this may not be suitable for those who don’t like seafood as you can expect all things fishy: sushi, sashimi, tempura and tiradito.

Expect no less than luxury when you’re ready to peruse the menu. For a tapas and drinks evening, the snacks are to die for: if you’re a seafood lover, we recommend the crab doughnuts, but don’t worry if you’re not a meat eater as there are excellent vegan and vegetarian options too. As you would expect, the chefs clearly know their stuff as each and every main is cooked to perfection. International cuisine, complex spices, bright fruit and vegetables and tender meats; you will truly be spoilt for choice.
