Foodie favourites A TRUFFLING MATTER If your taste buds have ever had the good fortune of being taken to trufflecentric restaurant Tartufi & Friends while travelling in Rome or Milan, then they’ll already be tingling at the news of this new opening on the lower ground floor of Harrods. Serving everything from beef tartare with quail eggs and fresh truffle, to mildly flavoured Martinis and cleverly infused ice cream, you can also purchase a range of branded goods, including white truffle olive oil, chocolates, honeys and salts.

PARLOUR GAMES

HUNTER GATHERER Named after the 1950s dialling code for Marylebone, Hunter 486, located within boutique hotel The Arch London, is fighting for a place on the foodie map with a brand new menu curated by head chef Gary Durrant and award-winning food writer and broadcaster Henrietta Green. Inspired by best of British recipes, diners can expect the likes of crispy oxtail salad with horseradish; potted duck with fruit chutney and sourdough; and peppered loin of venison with beetroot puree, as well as a range of specialist dishes served steaming hot from the stone oven.

50 Great Cumberland Place, W1H

If you’re racking your brain for the ultimate Sunday afternoon pub, then allow us to suggest Parlour, which is owned and run by Jesse Dunford Wood. Aside from housing a cracking beer garden with wooden booths and heaters for those chillier summer evenings, the food, drink and service offering really is second to none. Begin with piping hot soda bread straight from the oven (which tastes more like cake) followed by chestnut hummus and McTucky’s popcorn chicken nuggets, with cow pie or chicken kyiv for mains. Importantly, follow our lead and save room for one of the fantastical desserts: a toasted marshmallow Wagon Wheel, an arctic roll, or a DIY Eton ‘tidy’.

5 Regent Street, NW10

IN GOOD TASTE A stalwart of the culinary calendar, Taste of London will this year embrace a ‘flavours of the world’ theme, encompassing modern British cook Marcus Wareing, Le Gavroche’s Monica Galetti and Indian food pioneer Atul Kochhar. Add to the mix Nuno Mendes (of Chiltern Firehouse fame), The Palomar, Lima Floral and L’Anima, and you could be eating your way around the capital’s best restaurants with just a single booking.

17-21 June, Regent’s Park, NW1
