5a Burlington Gardens, LONDON, W1S 1EP
Cecconi's is a classic all the way from the glamorous Mayfair crew slurping cocktails and cicchetti at the island bar down to the black-and-white humbug-striped marble floors, green leather upholstery and slick Italian staff. Dedication to top-class seasonal produce is clear, and it's simply prepared to deliver full-on flavours. Kickstart the taste buds with superb grilled octopus with sautéed potatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, sweet red peppers and broccoli, then move on to splendid pasta: crab ravioli, say. Main course brings an outstanding slab of halibut with clams and mussels and capers, or you might go meaty with a classic chicken paillard with rocket and parmesan.f
