Bao and Bing in Marylebone is a pretty sexy place. And no, before you start thinking that we really need to ‘get out there more’ (shut up, mum), this restaurant really is. The hoisin duck bao is great, and the bing is the Taiwanese spicy crepe we never knew we needed, but this place has a buzz that makes it something a bit special. The lighting is low, the service is slick, and there’s a cocktail bar downstairs that looks like the lounge you’d have if you could afford to go to Urban Outfitters more than once a year. Come here on a first date, sit at the bar and watch as they make fresh bao. Or come here with some of your favourite people and share as many dishes as humanly possible whilst making your way through the cocktail menu.
