Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Debuts New Dining Digs: Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

February 3, 2011 By:Meagan Drillinger

Mandarin Oriental Hyde ParkReady for the next epicurean adventure? We hear Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and The Fat Duck Group have joined forces to create Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, a gourmand's delight in London's Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. The new gourmand playground was designed keeping England's heritage in mind.

Blumenthal has a slew of honors under his belt, including the three-Michelin starred The Fat Duck in Bray, Berkshire, The Hinds Head pub and The Crown pub of the same village.

The menu at this restaurant ties a bit of old with a bit of new (think scallops with cucumber ketchup and peas; slow-cooked short rib of beef in red wine juice with triple cooked chips; and tipsy cake, made with spit roast pineapple and jersey cream!).

We love that the restaurant offers floor-to-ceiling glass walls that give way to views of Hyde Park, as well as the open kitchen and a large scale pulley mechanize, modeled after the 16th century pulley system designed for the Royal British Court's kitchen.
