Pizza East- Tea Building, 56 Shoreditch High Street, London E16JJ, 02077291888 http://www.pizzaeast.com/

Really cool industrial looking restaurant in East London. The pizzas are really good since they are made in wood burning ovens. There is also a selection of good antipasti.

Beautifully designed classic Japanese cuisine restaurant in Mayfair. Dine and look at wooden tree like structures made out of Japanese cypress wood. Very serene…you almost forget for a minute that you are in a very loud and busy part of town.

Funky brasserie in Soho where you can eat fine English and Russian cuisine. Full menu is available all day and this venue is quite versatile- you can have afternoon tea, book a both for some serious cocktail time or you can simply press the little black button on your table for some immediate champagne service. Charming and fun.
