High density of Michelin starred restaurants
Mayfair is currently home to several Michelin starred restaurants, including Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught and Hibiscus, The Greenhouse and Fera at Claridge’s making it a natural destination for fine dining.
For a more relaxed atmosphere, there is Shepherd Market with cafes and restaurants dotted throughout the mini-maze of the 18th century. Here you can enjoy gourmet British cuisine with a Spanish twist at Kitty Fisher’s, a restaurant with atmospheric interiors and a wood grill for extra charm and flavour. The perfect space for ‘louche dining’.
Mayfair’s Mount Street has been one of the area’s most prestigious areas since the 18th century. Over time, Mount Street has become a key destination for some of the city’s most prestigious fashion retailers, art and antique dealers along with food and wine specialists, making it a prime location for any high-flying restaurateurs looking for the next site of a new venture.
