With some great new restaurants, London has an option for every kind of foodie. Here a list of some of the greatest restaurants in London this year:

Duck & Waffle, The City - Located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, the restaurant serves European and British influenced cuisine 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, what gives you the chance to admire the amazing view at any time of the day. The Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY

Brasserie Zedel - a parisian brasserie in the heart of London (but with great prices). With an Art Deco feeling, the restaurant have 200 covers, hafl reserved for walk-ins. With a "plat du jour" that changes everyday, you can still rely on the traditionals, like Salade Frisée aux Lardons, Onglet grillé and Baba au Rhum. There is also a Bar Americain. 20 Sherwood Street, London W1F 7ED   

Bubbledogs - Who said hot dogs and Champagne don't go together?

A bar offers a cocktail menu and lighter dishes. Broadgate West, 1 Snowden Street, London EC2A 2DQ.

Caravan King's Cross - The interiors reflect the area's Victorian industrial heritage, which exudes a cool, currect vibe with low hanging lighting, exposed brick work and reclaimed furniture. Along one side, the chefs are visible behind a cage-like wire mesh. At the back, divides off by the bar, metal shelves are stacked with sacks of coffee beans, waiting to go into the giant on-site roaster. All of that serving a menu of "food well traveled".  Granary Building, 1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA

Ceviche - Ceviche makes a fun night out in Soho with a buzzy cocktail bar and varied, but light, Peruvian cuisine. 17 Frith Street, London W1D 4RG

The menu offers elegant yet restrained food, characterised by clean flavours and simple presentations. 39 Whitfield Street, London W1T 2SF

Colbert - On the site where the famous Oriel stood for 20 years, Colbert is the new restaurant on the Sloane Square Block, billed as "a true all-day grand-cafe, providing eating and grazing from breakfast through to later evening". Colbert's love affair with French food is clearly an enduring one, not a passing fancy. One of the favorite dishes in the rustic Cassoulet. 50-52 Sloane Square, Chelsea, SWIW 8AX
