Contrary to popular belief, you are allowed to really stan a salad and also love the sesh. If you agree, then we would like to introduce you to Chameleon. This high-energy restaurant in a Grade I listed building near Regent’s Park serves a menu of Tel Aviv-inspired sharing plates alongside the musical offerings of a nice lady in a gold-glittered gown who wanders around their self-anointed ‘God’s Garden’ playing an electric violin. Yes, it is all a bit ridiculous, but the cocktails are great and the fattoush salad up there with the best in London. This probably isn’t the place for you if you like a side of peaceful solitude with your meal, but if you’re into partying over a feta-fest in a very lovely garden then you’ll love it.
