Ladbroke Hall is an arts club with a spectacular, dimly lit restaurant, where tweezered-to-perfection modern Italian dishes are eaten beneath sculptural mesh chandeliers and surrounded by hulking columns. But if you can embrace the slightly cold, museum-like feel of this Notting Hill dining room, it’s an impressive place to eat. Touches like the flickering candles, friendly service, and piles of jade, velvet cushion make it a great date night spot for couples who fancy treating themselves, and showing off their new cashmere roll necks. The food is excellent, particularly their take on lasagna—small parcels of pasta, one filled with béchamel and one filled with ragu, with crispy shards of ragu balanced on top. Those who like their restaurants aesthetically pleasing and food creative, will find lots to enjoy here.
