This place didn't break the Top 50 in The World's 50 Best Restaurants (2017) but it did break my Top 10 Places to Eat in London.

Usually a four course sit down menu (which is quite frankly the only way to eat at a place like this) is £44. The guest series was £49. It comes with all of the trimmings; amuse bouche and petit fours and some...more
