The London outpost of one of the US’s most celebrated chefs, Bar Boulud has been a hit since it opened in Hyde Park’s Mandarin Oriental hotel in 2010. Unlike chef Daniel Boulud's New York flagship site, Daniel, Bar Boulud is a more laidback place to experience his sophisticated French cuisine. A buzzing brasserie as popular for its food as its drink offering, it serves an eclectic à la carte of beef tartare, escargots, burgers and seafood. Cocktails include signatures such as a ‘blossom tea-groni’ and there’s a comprehensive wine list centred on the Rhône Valley and Burgundy.
