The Mayfair and Bloomsbury restaurants join some of the best restaurants in London…

Two London restaurants have recently been added to the UK’s Michelin guide.
Both relative newcomers to London’s restaurant scene, Apricity in Mayfair and Bloomsbury’s Plaza Khao Gaeng join the acclaimed guide to top restaurants and eateries.
Opened in May this year by Chef Patron Chantelle Nicholson, Apricity champions micro-seasonal eating and veggie forward, and likely a contender for a Green Star at some point.
The kitchen works with small farmers and growers as well as with foraged ingredients and has a zero-waste approach to cooking.
The New Zealand-born chef also owned the now-closed Tredwells in Covent Garden, which received a green Michelin star in 2021, as well as Hackney pop-up All’s Well.
Located in Bloomsbury’s Arcade Food Hall, Southern Thai restaurant Plaza Khao Gaeng prepares tasty curries, fragrant stir-fries and authentic Thai flavours.
While the flavors are faithfully Thai, chef Luke Farrell grows many of the ingredients himself in a custom, contemporary greenhouse in Dorset.
It is part of the JKS restaurant group, which also includes BAO, Bib Gourmand Berenjak, Kricket and Hoppers, so it keeps good company.
The restaurants are two of seven new additions to the guide from across the UK, joining 1890 by Gordon Ramsay, Lisboeta and Up Stairs at the George.
