Tom Aikens’ Belgravia townhouse restaurant Muse won in the Europe Luxury category while Maison François, a brasserie in Piccadilly, won in the Europe Standalone category.
Muse, designed by Körner Interiors, is a restaurant set in a two-floor townhouse with two distinct styles – the ground floor bar area has an Austin Powers meets Barbarella vibe with strong colours and lined patterns while upstairs is a more neutral colour palette with ornate curved mirrors and angular lighting.
Maison François, which was designed by The Guild of Saint Luke, takes its interior design cues from a postmodern cement factory in Barcelona, with a concrete effect ceiling, high muted pink walls, smart cream leather banquette seating and a huge clock sat above the pass inspired by 1970s wristwatches.
Both venues appear in this year's list of the UK's Top 100 Restaurants.
