Restaurants may have been closed for what feels like an eternity, but that hasn’t stopped the Michelin Information from doling out a load of new stars for 2021. That usually means there are 66 London dining places now viewed as to be the holy grail in eating, seven of which are brand name-spanking-new to the checklist. Whilst the excitement will make us want to reserve a desk promptly, you can get a flavour of what some of these culinary destinations are all about in lockdown, much too – by purchasing their grub.

If you haven’t by now gone food-kit mad, dive in at the deep end with one particular of these extremely fancy offerings. Or forget about faffing all-around with velouté in your rusty outdated pan and get in a really posh takeaway. Then you are going to just have to beg your housemate to dangle your handbag on a bespoke stand, pull your chair out for your arrival to the desk and rearrange your napkin as you nip for a rest room break between classes. All thoroughly ordinary conduct. 

Here’s a comprehensive list so you can good dine from household.
