Cecconi’s, located just behind the Royal Academy, shows London at its most cosmopolitan. A chic restaurant and bar with wraparound windows and striped marble floors, it’s part of the cool Soho House group. Service comes from classy white-jacketed staff and food is served all day – everything from egg white omelette to lobster spaghetti. The fare is pleasingly simple rather than imaginative. We sat at the marble-topped bar next to a blonde bombshell sipping pink champagne and a suave Italian businessman tucking into veal milanese. Our starters were perfect – a fresh courgette flower stuffed with creamy ricotta, and a single, just-so scallop served in its shell. Crab ravioli, silky textured and laced with basil, was impeccable too. Prices for main courses are high – this is Mayfair, darling – but a selection of crostini or a roast chicken salad might be all you need. Or almost: Cecconi’s vanilla cheesecake features a luscious medley of fruit heaped over a filling so rich it’s practically criminal. Bag a pavement table in summer, order an £8 glass of prosecco and count the Ferraris and the facelifts.
