Benares Mayfair is a Michelin-starred Indian restaurant located on Berkeley Square in one of London’s most prestigious neighbourhoods.

With refined cooking and perfectly presented dishes at the heart, Executive Chef Sameer Taneja creates seasonally changing menus that draw on influences and spices from all corners of the subcontinent, to enhance rather than overwhelm the top-quality ingredients sourced from UK’s finest producers.

Named after India’s holy city, Benares marries tradition with daring modernity with hand-crafted furniture, water features, and an elegant, exotic interior.

Arenella is named after the seaside town in Sicily near to where the owners’ mother grew up and where the family’s love affair with simple honest food originates.

Until the end of November, all drinks will be half price from Monday – Friday and food at Arenella will be half price from Wednesday to Friday. Bordered by plants and hedges, the heated terrace exudes an atmosphere of tranquil relaxation, a beautiful oasis set away from the hubbub of the Angel area.

Having previously owned Lena in Shoreditch, the owners will continue this philosophy of simple Southern Italian cooking at Arenella during their residency at The Chapel Bar. The all-day weekend lunch menu will feature various seasonal dishes – warming stews and freshly made pasta mains to choose from along with an additional starter or dessert course comprising of typical Italian fare.

Examples from the food menu include:

• Caponata – aubergines, capers, pine nuts
• Nduja Tortellini and red pesto
• Tortelloni Mushroom and truffle, butter and parmesan
• Cioppino – Seafood stew, fregola
• Sicilian lemon polenta cake


In addition to the new space, The Chapel Bar houses a ground floor seating area, as well as a large open plan space on the first floor, featuring a fully stocked bar which leads out onto the delightful terrace garden.


Whether it’s after-work drinks, or catching up with friends, the space also lends itself perfectly for events and private parties.
