Texture is award winning Michelin starred restaurant and champagne bar created by Agnar Sverrisson and Xavier Rousset. Texture's cuisine style is modern European with Scandinavian influences and focuses on combining and emphasising different consistencies.

The regular tasting menu further showcases Sverrisson's creativity in the kitchen and a set lunch offers unrivalled value. The Texture Champagne Bar welcomes diners for pre-dinner aperitifs or those who want to take advantage of Rousset's extraordinary Champagne and Wine list.

I visited with a group of 10 friends and we dined in the private dining area. We all had the tasting menu and the wine tasting to go with it. The food is sublime, some incredible combinations and flavours that were fabulously complimented by the wine. The wine itself was really interesting with some wine you simply wouldn't expect. The...

Went there to have a light lunch, end up with the lunch tasting menu. It was all good except my mom doesn't like the pigeon, the manager came to change with a scallop for both of us. It was really thoughtful. Really a nice experience there.

From the outside I noticed the words “Champagne Bar” and this is what the front of the venue is. Behind the bar partition of this high ceilinged room is a very good restaurant. There is A la Carte as well as a fish tasting menu and another tasting menu. We decided to go for the later. I had a glass... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
