One of the best events of the year London Design Week 2020 is here! Known for its inspiring multiculturalism, impressive historical sights, delicious restaurants, phenomenal architecture, majestic gardens, and infinite agenda for every taste, London just won’t let you down for a single second. Due to the times, we are living this guide is completed with virtual situations, friendly and open-spaced restaurants. London Design Week is here and is FILLED WITH SURPRISES (and as always covetED is here to tell you all about it.)
An Eastern Mediterranean restaurant and bar. A menu inspired by the flavours of the Levant, cooked over a wood fire.
The main dining room of this King’s Road branch of Bluebird Café looks like it’s actually outside; it has a conservatory-style glass roof and loads, we mean loads, of plants. If you want to really get some fresh air, there’s a massive outdoor dining area with fake grass, umbrellas and garden-style furniture serving a Mediterranean menu. It’s the whole alfresco shebang.
Open for takeaway.
The hype may have died down, but Chiltern Firehouse remains one of London’s hottest tickets and it comes with the bonus of a lovely sheltered courtyard complete with heaters and blankets. Either book a table in the restaurant proper (good luck with that) and ask for an alfresco spot amid the pot plants and lanterns – or simply or turn up on the day with everything crossed. Available for breakfast, brunch, and lunch (fair weather permitting).
Relaunched by chef Henry Harris in 2018, The Coach is an enormously elegant gastropub with lovely garden space to dine in. Like a cross between a cottage and a conversatory, glass walls separate the garden, decked out with mirrors and winding plants, from the dining room. Expect a menu filled with proper French food.
Sibling to The Palomar and The Barbary, Coal Office is a slick collaboration with designer Tom Dixon, plating up the flavors of modern Jerusalem. On the top floor of the very cool Coal Drops Yard development in King’s Cross, during the warmer months, it has a breezy outdoor terrace space that’s open for business all day long.
