Ever-changing menus made with the finest seasonal ingredients mark a new breed of modern restaurants in the heart of London. They are a fine blend of traditional architecture and culinary pastiche, which gives them their rather niche feel. An abundance of mushrooming modern British restaurants has kept the traditional British cuisine alive with interesting new twists.

Thomas Cubitt

Go for the strange, eclectic and yet delectable items on the menu. This establishment gets its moniker from the city’s master builder. Just like its name and interiors, the food is ambitious and unique. Try the bone marrow mash, goat with curd and roasted cod cheeks. Wash it down with a British bellini for the complete effect. Thomas Cubitt is indeed one of the most courageous greater London restaurants of this time.

The Manor

This is the gastronomic hotspot of the young adult food lovers, restaurant hopping veterans, adventurous couples and the key players of London’s culinary scene. The Manor boasts of a pocket-friendly tasting menu that starts at £ 45. The tasting menu is the best way to experience their awesome creativity and presentation. Otherwise, you can always go for the smoked cod with cultured cream or the miso-cured mackerel.

The Salt Room

This is a restaurant with a twist. Its sister restaurant – the Coal Shed has already claimed the crown for the best steak in town. The Salt Room does inspire great expectations. Try the deconstructed saffron-stained bouillabaisse, fruits of the sea surfboard and the day's special market fish preparation. It is one of the most innovative and intelligent seafood restaurants of greater London. In addition to great food, it offers a panoramic view of the shingled shores of Brighton.

The Five Fields

The Five Fields melds together artisanal produce from the neighbourhood, local flora and an eccentric take on modern culinary arts. It offers a unique gastronomic experience in Chelsea that is still unmatched. Always try the seasonal dining option at the Five Fields for a delightfully fresh taste of native British cooking. You may have to wait for six weeks before you can taste the unique flavours from their kitchen. 

64 Degrees

64 Degrees is an interesting take on the traditional British cuisine. This place has quite the unassuming air with bare walls, naked lighting and low-hung fixtures. The little sunken wooden tables complete the minimalistic Brighton ambience. The cooking derives the unique flavours from the nearby Sussex countryside. The small plate concept is a darling for the flavour-fiends who are looking to experience something new with each bite.

Each of these restaurants offers a unique experience to the diners. They are nothing short of centres for culinary wizardry that offers the perfect balance of modern playfulness with traditional culinary practices.
