Mayfair restaurants – The upper crust of dining. To the east of Hyde Park and west of Soho, Mayfair is a pocket of wealth in Central London. Operating within a hive of foreign embassies, luxury residences and posh offices, restaurants in Mayfair are an upscale affair. Many establishments are situated inside ritzy hotels and running to the traditional, serving dishes such as classic canapés, roasted game meats, and old-timey desserts such as Eton’s Mess. However, it’s not only stuffy hotels and pretentious takes on venison. If you fancy something more exotic there are several upscale Chinese, Cantonese and other international Mayfair restaurants on hand, many of them offering modern takes on classic recipes. Just like most of London, the area is loaded with diverse food options from all over the world.
