Formal or Frivolous?

Whether you’re in the mood for foie gras at a
Michelin-starred French restaurant or fish and chips at a friendly pub,
Belgravia’s dining scene promises to please every palate.
Start your food foray into the neighbourhood on Motcomb Street, where the contemporary Indian restaurant Amaya serves coal-fired dori kebabs from a theatrical open kitchen, and where the local institution Motcombs puts its gentle modern spin on British classics. Close by is the acclaimed Zafferano, which has been dishing up sophisticated Italian cooking for more than a decade, while Gordon Ramsay’s Michelin-starred Pétrus executes flawless contemporary French fare.

Another French favourite is the intimate La Poule au Pot on Ebury Street, while further culinary gratification can be found inside Belgravia’s many hotels, including the recently opened Ametsa with Arzak Instruction, now with one Michelin star, at the Halkin by COMO, little sister to the three-Michelin-starred Arzak original in San Sebastián, Spain.

If you’re not in the mood for formal dining, opt for steak and cocktails at the Thomas Cubitt pub in Elizabeth Street, frivolous fish and chips and a pint of ale at the Star Tavern in Belgrave Mews West, or a wood-fired pizza and bottle of red in the cosy, country-style space at the Orange in Pimlico Road.
