Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
At his first London restaurant, modernist chef and UK television fixture Heston Blumenthal of the Fat Duck in Bray specializes in historical British dishes, which he puts through his own quirky filter. The menu features a saffron risotto that dates to 1390 and Blumenthal’s take on the 16th-century dish “meat fruit,” a chicken liver terrine disguised as a tangerine. The décor reflects the historical theme, with sconces in the shape of antique jelly molds and framed recipes from 16th-century British cookbooks.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
