The Fat Duck

High St.
Bray , England , United Kingdom

An hour outside London, the Michelin three-starred Fat Duck is widely considered one of the best restaurants in the world. Though it’s housed in a 450-year-old cottage, the dining room is contrastingly modern, with white tablecloths and sparse white walls brightened by a handful of colorful paintings. Acclaimed chef-owner Heston Blumenthal presides over the kitchen, crafting experimental European dishes for his ever-changing menu. Beginning with a liquid nitrogen—poached gin and tonic aperitif, the tasting menu might include snail porridge with jamón ibérico (Iberian ham) and shaved fennel, followed by takeaway sweets like homemade apple pie caramels in edible wrappers.
