Lima

Peru appears to be the flavour of the moment, with Lima one of several London restaurants to open specialising in Peruvian cuisine. Located in Fitzrovia, Lima is run by top Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez, chef patron of Central in Lima, Peru. The 80-seat restaurant is spread over two floors, with the ground floor available for exclusive hire for groups of up to 30. The menu is split into a 'crudo' (raw) section, which includes ceviches and tiraditos, and a tasting menu.

Cinnamon Soho

Cinnamon Soho, the capital's third restaurant from renowned Indian chef Vivek Singh, is described as the younger, cheekier sibling of The Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen. Spread across two levels, the restaurant offers 75 covers. Upstairs is a bar and restaurant with bar dining, booth-style seating and an al fresco dining area decked out with teak, steel and racing-blue leather. Cinnamon Soho is open for lunch, dinner and drinks, combining Singh's signature modern Indian cuisine with a nod to British favourites.

Cotidie

Saddle of crispy suckling pig and roasted woodcock and corned veal tongue tortelli are among the tempting dishes on offer at Cotidie, which means 'everyday' in Latin. Run by multi-Michelin-starred Italian chef Bruno Barbieri, the Marylebone-based restaurant seats 75 diners and has a daily changing menu. An elegant counter bar seats up to ten guests with its own menu of appetising cicchetti dishes, designed to complement the extensive wine list.
