What to Order: Opt for the Menu Prestige, which includes dishes made with the finest seasonal ingredients. If not, the seven-course tasting menu should hit the spot with seared Scottish scallops, foie gras and roasted venison.

Insider Tip: The 360 degree views of London are spectacular, and you can choose your seat according to what you want to see: southeast for views of Buckingham Palace and the cityscape of Victoria; west for the best views of Hyde Park and the Serpentine; and north for the red brick buildings of Mayfair and the tree tops of Regents Park.
