Nearly five years in the making, this three-storey Mayfair restaurant was one of the biggest restaurant launches of 2018. The name is oxymoronic – for this is a place to see, and to be seen in.

The chef is Ollie Dabbous, who made his name at a rather lower-budget enterprise that was celebrated for its lack of cheffy frippery not too far away in Fitzrovia. Hide is far grander, an enormous building with a magnificent spiral staircase and a rustic but reassuringly expensive aesthetic. 

Spread across three floors, the upstairs dining room offering near uninterrupted views of Green Park, Hide is a vast space with an equally capacious food offer. Few high-end of restaurants of such magnitude are known for their breakfast offer - or even serve it - but here it is an art form with healthy dishes of acai and granola bowls rubbing shoulders with meticulous viennoiserie and heartier savoury options.

There is also an extensive a la carte offer for lunch and dinner besides tasting menus, including one for vegetarians, and a set lunch menu.

The restaurant is from the people behind the world’s most exclusive wine shop (it’s just down the road). Customers at Hide can peruse the entirety of Hedonism Wine’s stock by iPad. While it’s not all blow-the-budget stuff, the selection does include some of the world’s rarest and most expensive wines (bottles priced into the tens of thousands of pounds are not unusual).
