GARLIC’S OF LONDON: Ethical, Seasonal, Regional Cuisine

Written by The Editors

Celebrating a passion for food, wine and service, Garlic’s of London offers traditionally prepared high-quality food with a modern edge. The Garlic Fettucinne in this photo typifies this London landmark’s approach to top-of-the-line rustic cooking, using quality seasonal and local ingredients.

The Scene 

The unique artistic atmosphere of this restaurant’s dining room exhibits its deeply-rooted connections with the city. Exposed brick walls display local artist Steve Tracy’s paintings and posters from the Grand Theatre. A hand-crafted metal garlic sculpture holds the menu (which changes monthly) by the door. For over 25 years, Garlic’s has been a popular dining destination. Open seven days a week, a professional staff will welcome you for an intimate gathering, leisurely Sunday Brunch, business meeting or special celebration. The Garlic’s team ensures you have an exceptional experience with gracious service, warm ambience, distinguished wines and a carefully crafted, seasonally-inspired menu.
