London's Restaurants on the Best Restaurants of the World List
|Dinner by Heston Blumenthal|
As all the big cities in the world, London is filled with options of restaurants, of all types, sizes and prices. But only the really great cities feature 7 times in the list of the 100 best restaurants in the world! Yes, London has 7 restaurants in the list, and 3 of them are on the best 50, a list sponsored by S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna that you can see here.
Here you will find out which one are they, last to first for more emotion:
No. 84 - Pollen Street Social - To sum it up, great food, cooked with imagination and care. Nice wine list to complement it. Attentive, knowledgable staff who still recognize that customers are more important than them. And a nice setting balanced between formal and casual. www.pollenstreetsocial.com/
No. 71 - St. John - The interior is downplayed and understated. The atmosphere is somewhat rustic and unpretentious. It was like the chef and owner decided to turn a small market or industrial warehouse into a worthy restaurant. And worthy it is of its one Michelin star rating. www.stjohngroup.uk.com
No. 70 - Hedone - Opened in July 2011 by self-taught chef Mikael Jonsson, Hedone has quickly established itself on the London dining scene receiving acclaim from national as well as international reviewers. A very innovative setting with a totally open kitchen that serves to show that the chef has “nothing to hide”. hedonerestaurant.com/
No. 59 - Viajante - Situated in the imposing grandeur of Town Hall, Viajante is a mecca for food-lovers. The restaurant is guided by celebrated Portuguese chef Nuno Mendes, whose dedicated team are constantly pushing boundaries with their innovative and exciting food creations. Viajante surprise tasting menus combine the simple with the extravagant, taking inspiration from Portugal, Spain, Asia and Scandinavia. Choose from between 6, 9 and 12 courses to experience the full range of chef Nuno Mendes’s dazzling cuisine. www.viajante.co.uk
No. 33 - The Fat Duck - Just a little outside great London, The Fat Duck Restaurant from Heston Blumenthal, was already awarded three Michelin stars, restaurant of the year, Best Restaurant in the World and Best Restaurant in the UK. A self-taught chef, Heston Blumenthal's route to the top has been an unconventional one, involving rule-breaking, unusual experiments and an exploding oven. His work researches the molecular compounds of dishes so to enable a greater understanding of taste and flavour. His original and scientific approach to the molecular breakdown of cuisine has teamed him with fellow chefs, scientists and psychologists throughout the world. The Fat Duck opened in 1995 and was awarded its third Michelin star in January 2004. www.thefatduck.co.uk
No. 13 - The Ledbury - The Ledbury opened in 2005, with Brett Graham as Head Chef ,supported by a young and energetic team. The restaurant has gained many accolades including the much coveted second Michelin Star. It certainly looks as suave and moneyed as the neighbourhood it serves, but the dining room’s white-walled chic and leather chairs are matched by genuinely personable and ‘endearing’ service. Graham is a ‘super-talented’ chef who revels in flavour and cooks with jaw-dropping precision. www.theledbury.com
No. 07 - Dinner by Heston Blumenthal - Focusing on the revival and modernisation of traditional British recipes, the menu at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal features simple contemporary dishes inspired by Britain"s historic gastronomic past and recipes dating as far back as the 16th century. The restaurant has one Michelin star. www.dinnerbyheston.com
