Hopefully in just over a month we will be able to return to restaurant terraces and pub gardens, but until then (and until the hospitality industry is fully open) we will be continuing to get our foodie fix by ordering directly to our door. Need some inspiration, here's our pick of some of our favourite restaurants that you can order from:
Nobu London Old Park Lane
Nobu London Old Park Lane has an extensive menu to choose from, so if you're indecisive you might want to ask someone else to choose for you. You'll find set menus including the Nobu Deluxe Menu which includes Beef Tenderloin Tataki, Tuna Nigiri, Grilled Poussin with Truffle Teriyaki Sauce and Ice Cream Mochi or choose from their a la carte menu where you'll find their Nobu Wagyu Taco Box, Pan Fried Dover Sole with Red Chilli Shiso Salsa and yes, their most iconic dish, the Black Cod Miso. Order from Deliveroo or Supper London.
Hélène Darroze at The Connaught
Fancy eating from a three Michelin-starred restaurant? Well you can with Hélène à la Maison. The menu includes a selection of chef's signature dishes and a weekly changing dish, at the time of writing, dishes include XXL Scallop with white asparagus, seaweed, sea urchin and lemon; Hake and Citrus Fruits with speculoos and vanilla. You'll also find special menus to mark the likes of Mother's Day. Available from their website.
Hame by Adam Handling
Hame (the Scottish word for home) is Adam Handling's at home restaurant experience. It does require a little bit of prep, but the team have done most of the work so all you have to do is cook the prepared components and add the finishing touches - scan the QR code included for a video showing exactly how to do so. And with dishes including Adam Handling's famous Cheese Doughnuts, Adam's Signature Lobster Wagyu, Beef Cheek Ragu Pappardelle and Chocolate and Raspberry Mousse Cake it's well worth it. Available via their website. (Image: Tim Green)
Fine-dining Indian restaurant, Jamavar, launched their first decadent delivery experience, THE ROYAL KITCHEN, during the first lockdown, since then they have a created a number of menus including their indulgent Royal Tasting Menu with accompanying cocktail flight and their Celebration Menus for when you just want to be a little more decadent.
