About A Boy in Mayfair
Great food, gorgeous ambience, and Will mucking up again
Location: 8 Hanway Place, Mayfair, W1T 1HD
Description: What better place to unveil a web of deceit than...
High-rolling Hakkasan Michelin-starred restaurant remains one of the most talked-about places to eat in the capital, and continues to preach its sexy oriental gospel to full houses.
And back in 2002 this fabulous location was a film location in 'About A Boy'. In fact Will (played by Hugh Grant) tries to unravel his web of deceit here dining with single mother named Rachel (played by Rachel Weisz).
'About a Boy' is a 2002 comedy-drama film directed by brothers Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz, based on the novel of the same name by Nick Hornby.
It's a story of a cynical, immature young man who is taught how to act like a grown-up by a little boy.
