Dinner by Heston Blumenthal – A Must on the London Circuit

London is one of the world’s leading global cities. Its prominence is due to its contributions to a wide range of fields, from commerce to the arts. Based on international arrivals, London is the world’s most visited city. The fact that more than 300 languages are spoken in the city is testament to the cultural diversity.

London contains no less than four World Heritage Sites as well as many famous landmarks, cultural institutions, and sporting events. With a range of restaurants, cafes and gastropubs that offer everything from French to Chinese menus, it’s refreshing to find a fine dining experience that focuses on British cuisine.

With beautiful views of Hyde Park, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is a unique dining destination. This stylish restaurant combines an elegant contemporary ambience with a nod to tradition. Glass walls that extend from floor to ceiling give diners an interrupted view of the kitchen and its unique spit roast pulley system.

The combination of modern and traditional extends to the menu. Heston Blumenthal and executive chef Ashley Palmer-Watts have developed a unique take on British dining. Consultations with food historians and extended hours of research at The British Library were well worth it – Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is one of the best restaurants in the world.
