For a high-calibre hen party, there’s no place in London like Mayfair. Full of smart bars and clubs, the area also home to Michelin-starred restaurants such as Benares.
Named after India’s holiest city, the restaurant is headed by chef patron Atul Kochhar who brings the heat, colour and flavours of the subcontinent to your plate using seasonal British ingredients. It’s more than a place to grab a meal – dinner here is an experience you’ll savour as much as the food.
Begin the revelry in one of four private dining rooms each decked in dark wood and mood lighting. For a side of action with your meal, The Chef’s Table is hard to beat. This space seats nine and features a glass wall that overlooks the kitchen, so you can watch the chefs creating your feast, be that À la Carte or the (highly recommended) tasting menu.
Bitesize highlights: your must-try menu
The Signature Lychee and Rose Bellini
This is a pure celebration in a glass. Hendrick’s mixed with Lychee Liqueur, Rose Syrup and fresh lemon juice, and a splash of Champagne. Keep ‘em coming!
Main dish: Duck Varuval
Uniting British and Indian flavours, the Duck Varuval is one of our top picks. Expect a plate of sumptuous duck breast with spelt pulao and a medley of fermented spring vegetables with a spiced jus.
Spiced Chocolate Cherry Lava Cake, White Chocolate Sorbet
One for the chocoholics. The gentle spice and tart cherry flavours zip through the chocolate so you’ll enjoy a balanced flavour burst.
