Fine Dining In North London
|| When the phrase
‘money is no object’ can dictate your choice
in places to eat out, try a fine dining experience in
One of the area’s most talked about restaurants
is Jamie Oliver’s venture Fifteen [map].
Subject of a TV series and a book, this is the project
where he took 15 young unemployed people and trained them
to be chefs - the results of which you can taste at the
restaurant. The food can mainly be classed as British
but the ever-changing menu makes the most of seasonal
ingredients. However, whatever you’re presented
with on the menu, don’t expect the experience to
come cheap as a meal with wine is likely to set you back
upwards of £100.
The other top restaurant in the area belongs to the Conran
collection of ventures. Located close to the theatre of
the same name, Almeida [map] has all the hallmarks of a Conran restaurant –
a stylish interior and good food. The written menu features
“robust, regional, French cooking” like pigeon
d’Anjou roti et petit pois and poulet noir au vin
janue. And the wine list boasts red, whites and rosés
from Italy and Spain as well as regional France. This,
in addition to the unpretentious air, makes this one of
the best places in north London to fine dine.
Opened in 1999 The Real Greek [map] has managed to gather fans from across the capital. Despite
the trendy setting of Hoxton, the food focuses on pompous-free
home-style Greek cooking. At this restaurant the meals
brim with flair and flavour while the décor evokes
thoughts of Athens – an interesting eating adventure.
Unless you’ve had the pleasure of eating at a gastro
pub, restaurants will be your first port of call for fine
dining, but if you fancy seeing just how good the quality
cuisine is then try The Engineer [map].
This Primrose Hill eatery is one of the best examples
of a gastro pub in the capital.
