Now for one of the originals...

The Michelin Man is an instantly recognisable symbol - a human-like figure seemingly made up entirely of white tyres. However, it isn't tyres I'm trying to promote to you here, but rather the image which adorns one of the finest of all London restaurants - Bibendum .

So what is the connection between the two? Well it's really quite simple - the Michelin Man IS Bibendum, and this rather excellent restaurant is housed in the original home of the Michelin tyre company, which was taken over and converted by Sir Terence Conran in 1985.


Now it holds the Restaurant and an Oyster Bar - open seven days a week. The restaurant is open both lunch time and dinner, serving classic French food with a British twist, along with a 'prix-fixe' (basically a set menu), on lunchtimes and Sunday evenings.

If seafood is more your thing, head along to the Oyster Bar for a mouth wateringly extensive menu , which will probably take in all of your favourites, plus even more that you haven't discovered yet.

Should you not have time to even stop in - you must check out the Crustacea Stall as you walk past - here you can get your fill of seafood delights to go, so any parties you are planning now have some new inspiration...
