The October Hit List: Bistro Freddie, Claridge’s, Solis, and More


Now that we’re firmly entrenched in autumn — and it’s finally starting to feel like it, too — it’s the optimal time to start settling into some of the city’s newest restaurants, and to return to some time-honoured favourites for some comforting autumnal fare.

Among the ten standouts for October is the return of the classic hotel restaurant at Claridge’s, a steak and grilled chicken specialist in Battersea, plus the arrival of Chishuru in central London in a gleaming new space. There’s also Jackson Boxer’s new opening at Selfridge’s — perfect for mid-shopping refuels — as well as the permanent site of Mystic Burek, Spasia Dinkovski’s love letter to the Balkan fare of her childhood.

Whatever strikes your fancy this month, we hope you finish your meal full and satisfied. Here’s our handy checklist for everywhere you’ll want to dine in October. The latest Resy Hit List awaits.
