About Pera Soho is a transportative Mediterranean retreat in the heart of Soho. Inspired by the renowned Istanbul neighborhood where cuisine, art, culture, nightlife and the cosmopolitan converge, Pera SoHo seduces with an environment that is simultaneously warm and vibrant. Take a journey through mouthwateringly re-imagined, shareable plates, or let our kitchen delight your taste buds with a tightly curated selection of composed mezes and main courses. Pera Soho’s culinary philosophy is to look beyond the current day geographical borders of the Eastern Mediterranean and instead appreciate their culinary and cultural richness as a whole. In addition to the contemporary presentation of authentic recipes, Pera Soho’s cuisine also embellishes the use of Eastern Mediterranean ingredients and cooking methods to create its own signature dishes.  Pera Soho believes that straight forward recipes using fresh, high quality ingredients, coupled with caring and consistent execution is what it takes to achieve flavors that our guests will cherish and keep coming back for. In addition to being one of the few restaurants successfully marrying Eastern Mediterranean flavors with New York City dining habits and expectations, Pera Soho has a unique configuration comprised of indoor open dining and private dining areas, outdoor garden open dining and private outdoor dining areas, as well as a seasonal Winter Garden to ensure our guests can enjoy the outdoors no matter the weather . Pera Mediterranean Brasserie in Midtown is Pera Soho’s elegant and ethereal older sister, whereas Pera Soho is the adventurous, bubbly, younger sister.  For a city like New York where each neighborhood has its own distinct character and expectations, they each blend in with their respective locations.  Aside from the dishes, beverages and wines that share the same philosophy but are unique to each location, what really differentiates the locations is the clientele’s reasons for being there.  In Midtown it is usually about business, whereas in Soho it is always a celebration, however simple or sophisticated, and however small or large it may be. At Pera Soho the din of the city dissolves into the warmth, comfort and conviviality that is the hallmark of the Mediterranean. Indulge in the cuisine and the joyous reverence for the outdoors that is the hallmark of the Mediterranean experience.

Outdoor dining in central London Bleeding Heart Having been the scene of an infamous murder, and featured in Dickens’ ‘Little Dorrit’, Bleeding Heart Yard is part of British history. However, with its cobbles, starched linens and Gallic menu, it actually feels more French. Tables on the terrace (which operates in summer only) are bookable. Should the weather disappoint, you can either huddle under one of the blankets provided, or effect a shrug, mutter, ‘bof’, and head inside – if the buzzy bistro is full, choose a table in the elegant restaurant or the more informal tavern. Read more Farringdon Boulestin This tiny courtyard on Pickering Place (the site of London’s last pistol duel, fact fans) is, in theory, a public square accessed via an eighteenth-century oak-panelled passageway running off St James’ (as well as via the restaurant). A summer-only affair, it’s one of those hidden gems that more people than you’d like seem to know about – still, its tables are mostly filled with in-the-know Londoners wining and dining out-of-town relatives, rather than rucksack-toting, selfie-snapping tourists. Pitch up for a dose of knowingly old-school French cooking, with polished service. Book now Read more St James' Ham Yard Hotel This summer-only alfresco area is such a Soho oasis that as you approach it you’ll worry it might be a mirage. Its stone floors and gleaming modern sculpture are softened by lush, mature oak trees, cream parasols and linen tablecloths. The nice-enough Modern European menu is made more alluring by the fact that tables outside are bookable (you’ll be moved inside in bad weather). Alternatively, walk in for liquid refreshment after a hard day in W1: order a cocktail, take on water at the designer drinking fountain, and repeat. Check prices Read more Soho Advertising Modern Pantry Anna Hansen’s Clerkenwell restaurant, situated in a magnificent Grade II-listed Georgian building on St John’s Square, shares its nine alfresco tables with the pretty mandarin trees planted there. The first-come, first-served perches – only set out on warm, sunny days – are far enough from the noise and exhaust fumes of Clerkenwell Road but still close enough to people-watch. The globetrotting menu is particularly suited to dining in the sun – Hansen’s signature sugar-cured prawn omelette, on the menu from brunch until dinner, brings the south-east Asian sunshine. Book now Read more Clerkenwell Ognisko Hidden between Hyde Park and the museums of South Kensington, this lesser-known Polish restaurant is a world away from the tourist-packed mass-market cafés that line the pedestrianised museum thoroughfare. Its light-filled dining room is all old-school elegance with chic, modern touches. In summer, you can eat in a small marquee that overlooks the peaceful, tree-lined greenery of Prince’s Gardens (tables are first come, first served). Despite majoring in traditional Polish dishes, the menu also offers lighter options, from beetroot-marinated gravadlax to pan-fried mackerel fillets with olive, caper and fig salsa. Book now Read more Knightsbridge Shoryu Carnaby We thought you couldn’t sit outside in an upmarket Soho setting and eat well without paying through the proboscis. Yet that’s precisely what the Carnaby Street branch of this ramen mini-chain allows you to do. A cut above its courtyard neighbours, it offers a huge bowl of its signature tonkotsu (wheat noodles in a rich broth, with the likes of barbecued pork and soft-boiled eggs) for £11 – which is swoon-worthy in itself, and even more so when you factor in the elegant parasols, complete with heaters for colder days. Book now Read more Soho Advertising Barrafina Drury Lane Just when we thought it couldn’t be any more Spanish, the Covent Garden branch of Barrafina added a terrace to its offering, complete with parasols for Spanish-style weather, and heaters to combat your typical British summer (and winter). As with the restaurant’s dining room, it’s first come, first served, but on sufficiently sunny days, once you’re at the front of the queue, take your tapas alfresco, order a glass of the house vermut negre, and imagine you’re on holiday rather than mustering the energy for your next tube journey. Read more Covent Garden Caravan Exmouth Market The only thing better than getting a table inside this Exmouth Market hotspot is snagging one of the 20-odd alfresco seats outside – arrive early for a plum spot. The three large communal tables, rough-hewn from reclaimed scaffolding, sit under a retractable awning, providing shelter should the heavens open; with the other four, you’ll just have to take your chances. There’s an extensive selection of deservedly popular small plates and a handful of mains. The vibe is laid-back, and service is invariably warm and sunny, even if the weather isn’t. Book now Read more Clerkenwell Chiltern Firehouse This lovely, sheltered courtyard, complete with heaters and blankets, is only open for brunch and lunch in fair weather, and closes promptly at 8pm. Either run the gauntlet of booking a table in the restaurant proper (good luck with that) and ask them to allocate you an alfresco table should the sun show its face, or turn up on the day with everything crossed. If you’re willing to forgo Nuno Mendes’ celebrated menu, a late afternoon cocktail between services is a good bet. Read more Marylebone Advertising Clerkenwell Kitchen Although Clerkenwell Kitchen doesn’t take bookings for its seven outdoor tables, it’s well worth trying your luck on spec. The alfresco area, in a quiet courtyard surrounded by tall office buildings, has a lovely flowerbed and perky sun umbrellas to enhance your enjoyment of the daily changing, seasonal, organic fare – plus a small Perspex porch to shelter under if the weather turns. The place is licensed, the service friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. Read more Clerkenwell The Ritz Restaurant and Terrace London’s ultimate name-drop restaurant is for trust-funders or special occasion spendthrifts, but on a hot day, the sedate summer-only terrace is one of the best alfresco lunch spots in London, with cast-iron chairs, starched napery and a blue-and-white striped awning. You can’t book a terrace table, but you can request one when you book in the restaurant. Service is flawless, with staff on hand to refill champagne glasses from the tableside ice buckets, while wallet-busting dishes encapsulate Escoffier-style fine-dining. If lunch is too much dough, try a late-afternoon drink. Read more Aurora Restaurant With its hanging baskets, lanterns and brown-paper table covers and dripping candles, Aurora’s shady terrace is cute as a button – it even has an ivy-clad private ‘room’ out there, with colourful cushions, sackcloth curtains and a wicker canopy. The terrace is bookable, open all summer (weather permitting), and gets inundated with Soho sunseekers. If you’re one of the lucky ones, celebrate by ordering the daily pasta special – or a holiday classic such as prosciutto with melon – paired with one of the restaurant’s food-friendly wines.
