It'd be tricky to beat the location of this fancy all-day dining room - it's right on Regent Street, in the five-star and pretty historic Café Royal hotel. Despite the swanky setting it's an informal spot, with executive chef Andrew Turner putting together a modern-European menu not afraid to nip to more exotic culinary climes.
Expect, then, dishes such as Dover sole meuniere, a grilled veal cutlet caponata and Scottish scallops with artichokes and spiced mussels alongside a ceviche of wild Atlantic sea bass with chilli, coconut and lime, and a fillet of salmon with a shiitake and vegetable broth. An afternoon menu includes triple decker sandwiches, burgers, croque monsieurs, salads and poshed-up hot toasties. Afternoon tea is available, too.
Keep an eye out for seasonal menus and special events. The 'bring your own ingredient' menu sounds fun - take some produce or food along with you and the chefs will create something bespoke, just for you.
The revival of the Ten Room signals the resurgence of one of London's most renowned dining rooms. Echoing the heritage of this iconic landmark, this elegant space has been both sensitively restored to feature original details, and modernised to appeal to twenty-first century sensibilities.
Overseen by executive chef, Andrew Turner, the menu marries the traditional with contemporary flavours and styles.
Welcoming both visitors and hotel guests, the Ten Room is open from 7am to 10.30pm. Breakfast, lunch, cream tea, pre-theatre, post-theatre and dinner are served, as well as an additional menu that features an edited selection of favourites available throughout the day into late evening.
