Bentley's Oyster Bar & Grill
This reassuringly traditional restaurant for oysters and Dover sole is a glistening example of the London keep-it-simple creed. Near Piccadilly Circus, Bentley's is handy for theatergoers. The exquisite, plump, briny British native oysters are $37 for six, and rock oysters a good deal less. The clubby feeling is maintained in the upstairs restaurant with blue and white William Morris fabric on the walls and blue leather chairs; and the menu is simplicity itself.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
