Hotspots - eat and drink during London Fashion Week

Whether you're going to the shows or simply looking to get in on the action, head to the Soho-based hotspots embracing London Fashion Week in all its stylish glory.

 Those in search of a fun dinner venue for a big group of people after a day at the shows should head to Ember Yard, mere minutes away from the London Fashion Week hub. The latest restaurant from the Salt Yard Group serves up delicious dishes from Tuscany and the Basque region, cooked on their bespoke charcoal and wood grill. The menu includes chargrilled Ibérico pork ribs, smoked ribeye and grilled hake – perfect for sharing with friends. Plus, those with a London Fashion Week wristband will get a free cocktail on entry.

 The beloved Italian deli Lina Stores is catering to fashion week's frazzled editors with its new grab-and-go lunch boxes. The Soho institution will be whipping up restorative hot dishes and sandwiches with its unrivalled selection of fresh pastas, cured meats and cheeses (think spicy 'nduja sausage and creamy burrata with gnocchi) as well as delicious antipasti, salads and drinks – plenty of fuel to keep you going between shows.

 The Riding House Café is bringing back its fashion-faux-pas-themed cocktails for the autumn/winter 2016 shows, with this season's tipples named after famous red-carpet fails. Available from 16-23 February, the five cocktails include the alcohol-free Bad Ballerina (so-called because of Lara Flynn Boyle's infamous Oscars tutu), made from pomegranate juice, pear, lemon and ginger, and the Brit-Ju True Blue concoction of Blue Curaçao, lemon, egg white and sugar (an ode to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's double-denim look).

Peruvian barbeque and ceviche restaurant Señor Ceviche will once again be catering to the fashion set during London Fashion Week, with the return of its superfood menu. Making the most of South America's plethora of tasty yet healthy ingredients (including sweet potato, edamame, purple corn, choclo corn and plantain), dishes include sea bream ceviche, tuna tiradito (similar to sashimi) and hot crab causa (a Peruvian terrine).

You only have to take one look at Instagram to see that the fashion world is obsessed with healthy eating at the moment. Cue Jason Atherton, whose Pollen Street Social has recently launched London's first Michelin-starred vegan menu. With dishes including raw vegetable salad with lemon purée, sourdough croutons and peanut dressings as well as pearl barley with roasted Jerusalem artichoke and truffle, it's the perfect place for a post-show debrief.
