Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

London, UK

Boar door knockers in an otherwise light, bright dining room inside the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel hint at this smart spot’s medieval inspiration. Menus delve deep into British gastronomy’s past, with dishes bearing historical dates and stretching back as far as the 14th century. The techniques that won Blumenthal The World's Best Restaurant award at Bray's The Fat Duck – smoking, pickling and the use of liquid nitrogen – are all present, but at its heart Dinner specialises in fairly simple British plates, cooked exquisitely. Perhaps the most avant-garde item is meat fruit: velvety chicken pate disguised as a mandarin. The £45 set lunch menu is an affordable entry point into Blumenthal’s world.
