Angela Hartnett’s CALL TO ARMS

It’s no secret that London’s economy needs a reboot and hospitality is one industry that can truly help breathe life back into our streets and our communities, both socially and economically.

We need to get the capital back on its feet not only
to support my industry, but the many independent stores that make the capital great: from coffee shops to dry cleaners to paper shops. So to give you some inspiration, here is my pick of the five London restaurants that I believe deserve your bookings once they reopen fully in May.

The Delauney

My Corbin & King restaurant favourite! A London mainstay, The Delaunay’s team has set the standard for service in our business and Jeremy King has been so vocal in lockdown, managing to talk sense into the so-called powers that be. I can’t wait to see him back working in his own domain.

Silo

I love Doug McMaster and Silo. Its style, waste-free ethos and the way it is run is how we should all look to create restaurants. It’s not on the main drag so to speak but it is so worth a visit.

Kol

Santiago Lastra’s new Mexican place is brilliant. It was one of the best meals I had last year and I am so looking forward to eating there again.

Brawn

This place is one of my favourite locals — I love the owner, Ed Wilson, and his team. The Mediterranean small plates are always uncomplicated and so delicious, exactly what you want to eat.

Berenjak

I’m always so impressed by the flavours that come out of the kitchen at this Soho restaurant, which is inspired by the classic hole-in-the wall eateries that
line the streets in Tehran. It
has no outdoor space but has done some brilliant takeaways during lockdowns.
