We did our detective work to track down this great hotel restaurant
Where? Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes London, 108 Baker Street, London W1U 6LJ (020 7034 4830)
Been doing your detective work? Absolutely. Tucked behind the lively and chic Sherlock’s Bar (anyone would think we were near Baker Street), this hotel restaurant is a real find in the middle of tourist heaven.
Sounds like a pipe dream? The only thing smoking here is the mesquite wood-burning oven and charcoal grill.
So not exactly standard hotel fare, then? Not at all. Pitched to please locals and out-of-towners alike, food is seasonal and organic, so even regular visitors can look forward to a different dish every time they visit.
I bet they’re packed in? With only 42 seats, this is fairly intimate dining by London hotel standards, so book in advance. Alternatively, if they’re full, you can always eat in the bar instead, where there’s a lighter tapas menu on offer.
Need to know? Sherlock’s Grill is open daily for lunch from 12.30 till 2.30pm and for dinner from 6.30 till 10.30pm. The dress code is smart casual. Sherlock’s Bar, meanwhile, offers food throughout the day alongside an extensive cocktail and speciality vodka drinks menu.
