Fine Dining

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Heston’s trusted chef Ashley Palmer-Watts heads Dinner and cooks historically inspired dishes that are perfected in every single way possible. The food is easily approachable and enjoyable but has an amazing depth and attention to detail in its execution. Described by Ashley as what would happen if The Fat Duck opened a bistro, which is sort of what it is. Review of Dinner. Reservations required. Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.

Tony Conigliaros bar serving some of the best and most spectacular drinks in the world, the deceptievely simple drink menu truly hides the amount of thought and preparation that has gone into every single detail. It doesn’t get any better than this when it comes to cocktails. 69 Colebrooke Row.
