Heston Blumenthal, best known for his famed Fat Duck restaurant, has infiltrated the London restaurant scene with his latest establishment, Dinner. Located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hyde Park, Dinner integrates the stylistic innovations of interior designer Adam Tihany and Blumenthal’s inventive cuisine for an unprecedented culinary experience. The kitchen is surrounded by glass, giving diners an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the chefs in action and the pulley-operated spit used for slow roasting is reminiscent of a sixteenth century royal court fixture. Blumenthal looked to British library cookbooks for inspiration to develop his throwback menu. Take for instance his “Meat Fruit”—based upon an old Tudor recipe, the trompe l’oeil orange is actually a foie gras parfait covered in a mandarin glaze. From the elegant yet playful design to the refined yet irreverent approach to British gastronomy, Dinner is a nod to both historic tradition and modern innovation that will surely be a meal to remember.
