London hot spot puts diners through hoops


Published in Upscale, By Sarah Sekula

CIRCUS, LONDON: At Covent Garden’s Circus restaurant, nibble on Pan-American favorites like spicy crab cakes and barbecue-glazed short ribs while you’re wowed by aerialists and contortionists performing on the “stage” table (which later becomes a dance floor for diners). Dishes are shareable—better yet, so are drinks, which are served up in punch bowls. Top it off with lime crème brûlée and sorbet, and be pre- pared to see a celebrity or two; Leona Lewis, Jude Law and Sienna Miller have been spotted at the trendy venue (; 44 (0) 20 7420 9300).
