When César Ritz opened his latest hotel at the northern tip of Green Park in 1906, it bade fair to become one of the capital's most opulent lodgings, and so it would remain, from the Entente Cordiale to Cool Britannia. At its heart is the stunningly beautiful dining room, lined with French windows along the park side, topped with a ceiling fresco of sunlit clouds, overseen by a gilded statue of a reclining Poseidon. Many of the principles of the haute cuisine of yesteryear live on in John Williams' renditions of Dover sole véronique in champagne, tournedos and ox cheek in red wine, and the Mont Blanc dessert with its chestnut and rum ice cream. There are more contemporary doings afoot, though, too, so don't be surprised to start with a roast scallop with carrot purée and nasturtiums, prior to sika deer with elderberries and red cabbage, with tonka mousse and cocoa nibs to finish. Even if you don't opt for the crêpes suzette, hand-flamed by the maître d' at your table, you've got to hope somebody nearby does.
