If you find yourself in London and want to "step up your dining game" a bit, then a night out at Daphne's would definitely be a wonderful -- and might I add -- HIP choice. Located in Brompton Cross between Chelsea and South Kensington, one of the most sophisticated and elegant parts of London, it is an ideal spot for lunch after shopping in nearby Knightsbridge or King's Road. It's also great for a special night out. The Natural Museum, Science Museum, V&A, Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall and Royal Court are also just around the corner.

We had the great fortune of spending New Year's Eve dining at Daphne's, and it was absolutely exciting and wonderful. To start, the atmosphere was terrific that night, and everyone was well dressed, and the room was filled with everyone from ex-pats, Russian diplomats, wealthy Italians, well-to-do Brits and yes, a few Americans (we snuck in!).

What I enjoyed most about dining at Daphne's was the company and the wait staff. This restaurant, especially on NYE, had the potential to be very "stuffy," given that it's one of London's finest. Yet our staff was friendly and definitely had a sense of humor over a certain wine bottle opener, which our table can attest to.

All the staff were well versed in helping find safe gluten free options, even on a special holiday eve that's always certain to cause chaos in the kitchen. I started with a lovely endive, pear, Gorgonzola salad that was beautiful and flavorful. For my entrée choice I had the option of fresh fish or Risotto. Easy -- Risotto, per favore! After living in Italy, risotto is truly one of my favorite dishes to eat and I knew that Daphne's would get it right. It was delicate, creamy and filled with beautiful mushrooms and just the right amount of cheese. Wine was flowing, the atmosphere was stylish, and it was good to be in London that night. It was also really good to order dessert that night, which for me was an amazing Panna Cotta with fresh pomegranate seeds and juice perfectly drizzled over the oval shaped delight. I'm drooling right now just remembering what it tasted like.

My advice, should you find yourself in London and are looking to splurge for a lovely night out, book a reservation at Daphne's and enjoy every moment of your dining experience.
