Choosing somewhere to eat in Marylebone can sometimes feel a little overwhelming due to the sheer amount of restaurants on offer.
From high dining establishments to more rough and ready restaurants, there’s something for everyone. Luckily, we’ve chosen eight of our favourites to help you out.
1. Kitchen at Holmes
Kitchen at Holmes is a seasonally inspired all day dining restaurant offering seasonal international cuisine from Head Chef Stefano Motta.
Enjoy dishes such as Scottish scallop tartare with Yuzu basil or even a hearty Sunday roast with all the trimmings. Breakfast is also available in this stunning restaurant and we can honestly say it’s one of the best we’ve had in the area.
Celebrity chef Simon Rogan certainly made a name for himself when his Roganic restaurant did its pop-up a while ago, and now Marylebone residents are thrilled to see that he’s back for good.
On the pricer side as it is Michelin-style fine dining, Roganic is great for a special occasion as the tasting menu takes you through Simon Rogan’s skill set dish by dish.
3. Chiltern Firehouse
Fancy a bit of celeb spotting? Then Chiltern Firehouse is the place to be. While the food and cocktails are impressive and certainly worth the trip alone, it’s the people watching and thrill of spotting a celebrity that keeps us regular folk coming back.
Tapas, tapas and more tapas. That’s what we like to hear and Ibérica served just that. While it is a chain of Spanish restaurants, Ibérica’s quality is up there with the best of them, with charcuterie and cheese platters and classic small plates available and all washed down with some of the many Spanish wines on offer.
5. Meat Liquor
Not one for the veggies – Meat Liquor does exactly what it says on the tin. This raucuous, rough and ready restaurant serves up burgers, steaks and hot dogs with cocktails that pack a serious punch. Be ready to wait for your food, however, as it’s the stuff of dreams to actually get in to Meat Liquor as the queue is always out the door.
Now for something a little more relaxed – Delamina is a stunning lunch spot serving up Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine through snacks and mezze and wholesome dishes, which can be enjoyed on a street-level table as you watch the world go by. Perfect for a lazy lunch.
Austrian cuisine might not be the first thing you think of for a night out, but Fischer’s is an absolute treat for the senses. Treat yourself to a classic Wiener Schitzel if it’s your first visit – a true Austrian classic to open yourself up to a whole new cuisine.
