David Collins, the designer behind such hot spots as Nobu, used the Langham hotel’s classical proportions to add major drama to dining at the hotel’s excellent restaurant, Roux at the Landau. There is nothing austere or understated about this experience; it’s all wow.

The entrance is from the street, up a limestone set of stairs, which lead to a stunning atrium dubbed the Wine Corridor. The vaulted hallway is lined with glass-fronted shelves of wine bottles that glow from backlights, evoking the cellar of modern day James Bond type. At one end of the oval dining room a bay of towering arched windows face Regent Street. Because of Collins brilliant use of curved banquettes and antique brass lamps (from enormous antique chandeliers to library-inspired reading lamps), the tables manage to feel intimate despite the grand space. Chef Chris King offers a five-course tasting menu along with the regular menu. There’s a lovely private dining room, the Postillon, which faces All Souls Church and features one long table for sixteen.

Tip: The theater menus include two options: three courses or three courses plus a half bottle of wine - and both are reasonably priced.
