One of the most recent up and coming neighbourhoods in London, there's an abundance of restaurants to try in Fitzrovia. That's why we've rounded up the best places to eat in the area, most of which you can get delivered straight to your office with City Pantry.
Previously known as the not-so-cool sibling of its neighbouring areas Soho and Marylebone, Fitzrovia hasn't always been a foodie hotspot for Londoners. Just north of the bustling, tourist-laden Oxford street, Fitzrovia's peaceful charm has recently attracted some big culinary names however, and is now full of some of the best food that this city has to offer.
Incredibly diverse in terms of its foodie offerings, Fitzrovia is home to a range of cuisines one could only dream of. From fluffy Taiwanese buns to heavenly Danish pastries, there's something for everyone in this London neighbourhood - that's why we've rounded up the best places in Fitzrovia to make your way through.
For a quick coffee and pastry: Ole & Steen
For those occasions when you want to grab a hot drink and quick sweet treat, this Scandinavian bakery is just the place to go. Named after the founders themselves, Ole and Steen joined forces back in 2008 to create a family of local bakeries across Denmark, making their way to London soon after and boy are we thankful.
Serving some of the best breads, pastries, sandwiches and cakes in town, be sure not to miss a slice of their infamous Cinnamon Social: A moist, melt-in-your-mouth Danish pastry filled with swirls of cinnamon and vanilla custard. Perfectly paired with a cup of their ethically-sourced, high quality coffee, Ole & Steen is the ideal pit-stop when making your way through the neighbourhood.
In the mood for some of their cinnamon social in the office today? Good news - you can order this slice of heaven and so much more from Ole & Steen straight to your office, thanks to City Pantry.
For a fancy dinner: Circolo Popolare
Circolo Populare is the most recent addition to the Fitzrovia neighbourhood and has quickly become one of the hottest spots in the area. The latest venture by the Big Mamma Group, this Italian trattoria takes roots from Sicily, focusing on homemade Mediterranean delicacies that will transport you straight to the beautiful Sicilian coastline.
On the menu are a variety of small sharing plates full of fresh black truffle, smoked mozarrella and more, as well as metre-long pizzas that you'll wish you could finish.
