The Eater 38 hopes to answer any question that begins, “Can you recommend a restaurant?” It’s a curated list that covers the entire city, spanning more than 20 cuisines, neighbourhoods, and price points. It’s a list that tells the story of the London food scene, documenting the dim sum, Sunday roasts, curries, pizza, sinasir, rarebits, banh mi, udon noodles, pepper pot, and moo krob. All these dishes and more make London among the very best and most diverse places to eat in the world.
This guide aims to reflect the best food and most important restaurants in the capital as of autumn 2023, as new venues make their mark and older establishments rediscover their groove. It continues to showcase a mix of over three dozen restaurants, which have all done outstanding things in extraordinary times: emerging, surviving, thriving, and continuing to enrich the city and its food culture through a half-decade of unprecedented change and tumult.
