London Fashion Week is here, meaning the fashion, the parties and the food continues. Below are the latest gourmet hotspots sure to keep you fueled and fabulous while strutting about town from one runway to the next.

Balthazar
4-6 Russell Street WC2B 5HZ / 44 (0)20 3301 1155
Neighborhood: Covent Garden

This New York staple has made its way to London. Located inside the former Theatre Museum, this is the perfect place to hit up for afternoon tea, post-show drinks or weekend brunch. The menu features everything from Fruits de Mer to a sizable selection of traditional bistro dishes. Next door you’ll find its boulangerie counterpart, serving up house-made artisanal breads and freshly prepared salads and sandwiches for fashionistas on the go.

Chop Shop
66 Haymarket SW1 4RF / 44 (0)20 7842 8501
Neighborhood: Oxford Street/ Regent Street

Another hip New York-inspired eatery, the newly opened Chop Shop is brought by the renowned Altamarea group. Fusing the New York and London food scenes, the space offers an intimate setting complete with dark wood paneling and whitewashed brick walls. The menu here highlights fresh meat and fish pâtés, cheese and charcuterie plates and of course, steaks and chops. Stylish yet laidback, this is the perfect place for early evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Flesh & Buns
41 Earlham Street WC2H 9LX / 44 (0)20 7632 9500
Neighborhood: Covent Garden

Flesh & Buns is the first place in London to offer Hirata buns, traditional Taiwanese steamed buns with a variety of fillings. Choose from vegetable, slow roasted lamb or grilled sea bass stuffings, paired with savory main course options such as pulled pork with mustard miso or grilled sea bass with fresh tomato salsa. Opened by the team behind the hugely popular Bone Daddies, this is another restaurant hit in the making and an edgy take on Asian everyday cuisine.

Shoreditch House
Ebor Street E1 6AW / 44 (0)20 7739 5040
Neighborhood: Hoxton/ Shoreditch

Located atop the stylish, members-only Shoreditch House is the newly refurbished rooftop restaurant complete with floor to ceiling windows, exposed wooden beams and greenery throughout. Here you’ll enjoy strong cocktails and nosh on contemporary Italian-style dishes amidst a rustic ambiance and pristine city views.

The Clove Club
Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street EC1V 9LT / 44 (0)20 7729 6496
Neighborhood: Hoxton / Shoreditch

Once an über-cool pop-up supper club in Dalston, The Clove Club is now a permanent feature at the stunning Grade II listed Shoreditch Town Hall. Expect a daily changing menu, with small plates of seasonal contemporary British cuisine, as well as a set five-course menu featuring innovative dishes such as wood pigeon sausages & Ten Bells ketchup or roast loin of middlewhite pork with spinach, anchovy and mint. Pop into the bar for a chic, yet slightly more casual experience.
