Céleste at The Lanesborough

Hyde Park Corner, LONDON, SW1X 7TA

3 rosettes

London is hardly short of gilded relics of empire, but this grand old mansion on Hyde Park Corner is in the Premier League. The Lanesborough offers a world-class level of luxury and service, but if your budget's not up for stratospherically-priced rooms - personal butler included - you can sample the hotel's oligarch-friendly glamour by booking a table at Céleste, the opulent dining room. And those tables come glistening with top-class crystal and silverware, beneath a glass-domed ceiling that reflects a trio of shimmering chandeliers, and blue and white friezes resembling delicate Wedgwood china. Modern French cuisine is the kitchen's thing, cooked with top-level skill under the aegis of French super-chef Eric Frechon, although day-to-day delivery of the Frechon style is in the talented hands of head chef Florian Favario. The kitchen and über-professional front-of-house team may be as French as a camembert baguette, but the first-class materials underpinning the menu are resolutely British: a Burford Brown egg comes with pickled and puréed mushrooms, a parmesan sablé biscuit, toasted hazelnuts and a deeply-flavoured chicken jus, while day-boat cod is matched with lemon confit, light butter sauce and butter-laden crushed potatoes. Guanaja chocolate mousse, coffee ice cream and caramelised cashew praline team up to provide a classy finish.
