Rapidly becoming known as THE central London dining destination, Regent Street is home to some of the capital’s most innovative and impressive eateries. All the way from the north of Oxford Circus down to Piccadilly Circus, visitors this Easter will discover everything from alfresco dining on hidden Heddon Street to intimate restaurants tucked away on side streets.
In the past 12 months, Regent Street has opened a plethora of new restaurants from some of the biggest names in modern day cooking; Nieves Barragan, Sam Herlihy and Jin Yackshin to name a few.
Nieves Barragan’s Sabor, which opened on Heddon Street in January 2018, takes diners on a journey from the tapas bars of Andalucía through to the asadors of Castile and the seafood restaurants of Galicia.
Opening last July, and coming from the team behind Hackney’s Pidgin, the modern European restaurant Magpie, where dishes focus on ingredients that combined are delicious, but that also present an element of surprise (think Jerusalem artichoke with a ranch butter sauce and avruga caviar or steak tartare with truffle crisps and taleggio or oysters with apple and chilli crisp).
Follow the curve of Regent Street round from Heddon Street and you’ll come across Swallow Street and the infamous Veeraswamy. The UK’s oldest Indian restaurant, dating back to 1926, is one of the only Indian cuisine restaurants in the UK to of been awarded a Michelin star.
Hop across the road, and the decadent Hotel Café Royal awaits you. This spring sip tea like a royal on an afternoon tea experience like no other, as the hotel has partnered with Diptyque to create an afternoon tea inspired by its most iconic scents; Geranium Rose, Freesia, Choisya Orange Blossom and Baies Rose & Berries.
From the rich Tuscan inspired dishes at Frescobaldi, to the dictionary thick steak sourced from Yorkshire Longhorn cattle in Hawksmoor, there is a story, cuisine and cocktail to suit all tastes and budgets. Offering a selection of gastronomic delights, Regent Street will be sure to inspire and excite visitors this Easter.
