The Chiltern Firehouse in Chiltern Street, Marylebone is one of the finest establishments to come to town courtesy of renowned hotel manager André Balazs. Serving an eclectic cuisine which captures that quintessential cosmopolitan flair in a distinguished Grade II listed building in Victorian-Gothic style, the Chiltern Firehouse is a must visit for couples looking for an elegant dining experience.
Its diverse menu includes succulent crab-meat appetizers, squab with braised chicory and barley risotto, monkfish, grilled octopus with aubergine purée, and slow-roasted beef short ribs just to name a few. Its dessert selection is equally impressive, with delightful panna cottas and a variety of excellent wines to choose from.
Visitors can enjoy a table or sit at the bar for a more hands-on experience watching the expert chefs prepare their food, and the overall setting is warm, trendy, and friendly.
