Box sets aren’t the only thing to binge on while you social distance at home: some of the most famous names in London dining have responded to the coronavirus closures by offering home delivery. Read on to find out about the most delicious ways to survive lockdown – all come with a comforting side order of knowing that you’re supporting the restaurant trade in its darkest hour.
The Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant has launched an all-day offering to provide round-the-clock sustenance for the self-isolating residents of central London. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast or brunch until 3pm, starting the day with a black truffle-topped croque monsieur or seasonal fruits in a lemon verbena infusion, with perhaps some seeded sourdough and home-cured charcuterie to graze on, or 30g of Beluga caviar.
三级成人视频For lunch and dinner, Hide’s signature ‘Nest Egg’ may not have been deemed robust enough by chef Ollie Dabbous to survive a journey by scooter, but there are barbecued langoustines in a pandan leaf broth with baked pumpkin and peanuts, glazed guinea fowl with white miso, celeriac and kaffir lime, and chocolate tartlet with saffron and sunflower – all with a suggested wine pairing from Dabbous’ backer, Hedonism.
三级成人视频If you’re stuck for what to feed the kids, Huntsham Farm pork sausages with crispy potato cake and seasonal greens is a posh spin on bangers and mash you’ll wish came in an adult portion.
三级成人视频Hide’s Easter menu (£48 for two people) is available from Good Friday to Easter Sunday and includes saddle of roast Herdwick lamb with all the trimmings of confit new potatoes with butter and parsley, leek vinaigrette with Sussex Slipcote cheese, crushed peas with mint, and a strawberry and vanilla custard tartlet for pud.

Quite possibly the most upmarket Chinese takeaway that London has to offer, Michelin-starred Hakkasan is now available at home, where you’ll need to light some incense and download the Hakkasan playlist on Mixcloud to get the full clubby effect.
Set menus include the banquet meal for two (£135), on which you’ll find the likes of crispy duck salad, rib-eye in black pepper and merlot and roasted silver cod in Champagne. Alternatively, order individually from the a la carte; the hot-and-sour flavours of the crispy fresh water prawns or intensely savoury black truffle roast duck are both top shouts.
三级成人视频Wash it all down with something from the fabulous wine list: Ruinart Blanc de Blancs followed by Antinori Tignanello, say. For the last word in at-home authenticity, track down the recipe for Hakkasan’s strawberry and basil martini online.

三级成人视频For the fully immersive Hakkasan experience, order some daytime dim sum from its teahouse spin-off Yauatcha.
All the dumpling classics are here, though in our experience, steamed dim sum travels better than the fried stuff. Major on scallop shui mai with prawn and tobiko caviar, edamame truffle dumpling with water chestnut, or crystal jade dumpling with pine nut, and save the crispy duck rolls and venison puffs for when we can all eat out again.
Bulk out the dim sum with some stir-fried scallops and prawns or a Mongolian lamb claypot, and top it all off with one of the exquisite pastries; the pastel-coloured macarons are a jewel box of sweet treats.

Sushi delivery is hardly the novelty it once was but how many restaurants will bring you 160g of pure-breed Japanese wagyu alongside your spicy tuna tataki?
Sushi and steak isn’t all that’s on offer with Zuma’s home delivery service, however. There are spiced lamb chops and whole roasted lobster as well as the all-time classics of chicken robata skewers, marinated black cod, prawn tempura and edamame with sea salt that have been on the menu since Zuma opened its doors in Knightsbridge in 2002.
三级成人视频To drink, there are champagnes, beers and wine (including half bottles), though sake is the best thing to add to your order – Zuma has one of the best lists of rice wine in London.

The new home delivery service of this famous Mayfair Indian offers a timely opportunity to try the cooking of recently installed executive chef Sameer Taneja. What’s more, for every meal ordered, the restaurant will donate a meal to NHS workers.
Alongside the expected lamb samosas and chicken tikka, look out for more individual creations such as tandoori king prawn marinated in kasundi mustard and raw mango, or wild sea bass marinated in coriander and chilli chutney – testament to Taneja’s time spent in some exalted Michelin-starred kitchens.
Vegan and vegetarian options, such as paneer malai tikka (mace and cardamom-spiced cottage cheese with mint chutney) and baingan bharta (smoked and mashed aubergine tossed with green peas, onion, tomato and ginger), are no less appealing.
Spice-friendly drinks, meanwhile, range from Meantime and Cobra beer to Killerman’s Run Shiraz and Ebner-Ebenauer Gruner Veltliner.

Run by two talented young chaps with a brilliant pedigree – former Anglo front-of-house Nick Gilkinson and ex-Petersham Nurseries chef Joe Fox – Townsend has responded to Covid-19 with an approach every bit as creative as you’d expect for a restaurant within the Whitechapel Gallery.
Townsend’s signature dishes are now available to order direct from the restaurant, ready to eat at home. Start with a snack of fried Wensleydale with heather honey and smoked chilli ahead of potato dumplings with potted brown shrimp and purslane, with ginger and treacle pudding with clotted ice cream for pud.
Townsend is serving up lamb with all the trimmings for the Easter weekend; choose from either slow-cooked lamb shoulder to share for two (£30) or four (£55) alongside roast potatoes, mint sauce, caramelised onions, heritage carrots, purple sprouting broccoli and gravy.
Wine delivery is also part of the service and you can stock up on an ‘Essentials’ box of supplies when you’re ordering, including fresh eggs, dried pasta, chopped tomatoes and milk and butter. All that’s missing is a 16-pack of Andrex.

Dominique Ansel Bakery
三级成人视频French-born, New York-based chef Dominque Ansel has launched an at-home range for delivery from his Belgravia bakery. There are freshly made breads such as thyme and sea-salt focaccia and fresh pastas and sauces like macaroni with three-cheese sauce – but ordering any of this is merely a cover for stockpiling the former winner of the World’s Best Pastry Chef award’s bid for immortality: the Cronut.
三级成人视频The croissant/doughnut hybrid, named one of Time magazine’s best inventions of 2013, is released in a different flavour each month. Currently it’s pineapple upside down cake, filled with homemade pineapple jam and creamy vanilla cake ganache, which can now be scoffed without shame in the privacy of your own home.
三级成人视频Easter specials include a French spin on a hot cross bun (£12.50 for a box of five), made with soft brioche studded with dried cherries, cranberries and candied orange bergamot and glazed with spiced cinnamon star anise, and the Peep-A-Boos: eggshells filled with marshmallow chicks and gooey salted caramel (£20 for a box of six).
