Mimi Mei Fair, Mayfair
Chinese hotspot Mimi Mei Fair oozes romance. Headed up by Samyukta Nair, the restaurateur behind Mayfair’s Jamavar and Bombay Bustle, this one opened its doors last September. It’s spread across seven rooms in an old townhouse, some filled with leather touches and art-deco glass wall lights, others with two-seater dining booths, separated by mirrored panels. Expect a selection of dishes from Hong Kong, Singapore and mainland China, including crispy golden langoustine with truffle; smoked-applewood seabass with shaoxing wine; seared scallops with sesame; and an impressive dim sum menu. Larger dishes include traditional Peking duck with homemade pancakes, and lobster cooked three ways. Make sure to order a chestnut sour, the bar's take on an amaretto sour.
