Hi there my lovely AGs!
One of my best and oldest friends flew back with me from LA to help with mini-AG on the plane and to help me get back and settled….so I had to take her to one of my favorite restaurants in London as a big thank you treat!
Daphne’s which is located in South Kensington is part of the same restaurant group as The Ivy, J. Sheekey, and Le Caprice (to name a few). I’ve tried them all, and I have to say Daphne’s always comes up on top. I find the setting so warm and romantic (we’ve celebrated our anniversary there a couple of times), and the service is always stellar (which less face it- is rare for London!)
What to order: The beef carpaccio is to die for, and my girlfriend swears by the burratta (a yummy cheese served with San Marzano and focaccia) to start. If you’re going to go all out you can get a starter, a portion of pasta, and then a main, but I always do a starter and small pasta (I love the different risotto’s, but this time I went for the shrimp and courgette tagliatelle) so I can order dessert- the iced berries served with warm white chocolate sauce- AMAZING!!! Hint: If they don’t have it on the menu, just ask for it!
So if you’re still in the city this August, book a table!
