The best restaurants for dining indoors in central London

Restaurants ready to reopen from 17th May

If you’re ready to have someone else cook for you, reconnect with friends and family over a nice glass of wine and not have to worry about taking a blanket and a hot water bottle out to dinner with you, , then mark the 17th May in your diary. 

Dining indoors will be returning - without a substantial meal and with up to six people (or ten if it's two households) - for you to enjoy. Your only question remaining should be where to book? Whether you are searching for Michelin-starred dining for a special occasion, or somewhere more casual to reunite with loved ones or little ones, Regent Street & St James’s has a restaurant to suit. Craving something from across the pond? No problem – this is a neighbourhood serving cuisines from around the world. Read on to discover our recommendations on where to book next:
