Whether you are going to the shows or simply looking to get in on the action, head to some of the Soho-based bars and restaraunts to embrace London Fashion Week in all its stylish glory. Below are Aeterna Stylists’ top 5 favourite hotspots
1. Señor Cerviche
A Peruvian BBQ and ceviche restaurant and cocktail bar based in Soho, Señor Serviche will once again be catering to the fashion set during London Fashion Week, with the return of its superfood menu. From moreish street food snacks and fresh ceviches to fiery Peruvian BBQ plates and healthy super salads, Señor’s menu is the perfect balance of healthy and indulgent, the way eating should be. It also has a fantástico cocktail menu, focusing on Peru's national spirit, pisco. Whether you're in for the perfect pisco sour, a mamacita or an ice cold Cusqueña, they’ve got you covered.
Our favourite dishes include sea bream ceviche, tuna tiradito, and hot crab causa.
KIngly Court, W1B 5PW
2. Yauatcha Soho
By far the finest Cantonese dim sum in London, which is coupled with the stunning European patisserie which is the perfect place to be when you are looking for a special treat after a long day at fashion week. One of only three Chinese restaurants in Britain to hold a Michelin star, Yauatcha’s dim sum menu offers over forty different options while the show-stopping dessert menu showcases Asian flavours and ingredients to remarkable effect.
15-17 Broadwick Street, Soho, London, W1F 0DL
3. Calcutta Street
It is sparse, simple, small and hot. The ethos behind this snug, friendly Bengali restaurant is home cooking, with owner Shrimoyee Chakraborty previously hosting supper clubs wherever she happened to be living across London. The menu includes Calcutta’s street food bites, small dishes and larger “piping hot bowls of amazing food”. We love the Crab curry and the sea bass wrapped in banana leaf.
29 Tottenham Street, London, W1T 1RU
4. The Riding House Cafe
One of our favourite cafes in London as it really does have a bit of everything. There are antiques, curios and architectural salvage from around the globe. You can dress up or go completely casual. You can have a coffee or a pre-dinner cocktail. You might eat full-sized brasserie dinners, tapas-like sharing plates, or bar snacks. This is a great place to add some fuels to keep you going between shows.
43-51 Great Titchfield Street, London, W1W 7PQ
5. Social Eating House Soho
Set in the heart of Soho, Social Eating House offers a contemporary bistro menu in an informal, buzzing setting. The third restaurant from celebrated chef Jason Atherton, it won a Michelin star within six months of opening under Chef Patron Paul Hood.
Head downstairs for an excellent chef‘s counter where you can see the kitchen kicking into action or upstairs for a beautiful bar with lots of dark wood, leather banquettes and a playful cocktail menu.
