Michelin RestAurants Guide 2017

The best places to eat across the country

Three Star

The Fat Duck

The High Street, Bray, SL6 2AQ

Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant The Fat Duck has regained its three Michelin stars to rejoin the elite club of world eateries.The maverick culinary inventor’s high-end venue lost the trio of stars in 2015 after he took it 10,000 miles to Melbourne, Australia, for a year.

Housed in a 16th-century building that had previously been the site of The Bell pub, the Fat Duck opened in 1995. Although it originally served food similar to that of a French bistro, it soon acquired a reputation for precision and invention, and has been at the forefront of many modern culinary developments, such as food pairing, flavour encapsulation and multi-sensory cooking.

DINNER BY HESTON BLUMENTHAL

Céleste at The Lanesborough

The Lanesborough, Hyde Park Corner, Belgravia, London SW1X 7TA

A sensational, Michelin-starred restaurant in the heart of London – close to Knightsbridge, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, Céleste offers creative, modern food that’s as sensationally presented as it is flavoured. Conceptualised by Chef Eric Frechon with his protégé from Epicure in Paris, Executive Chef Florian Favario, the chefs now hold five Michelin Stars between them.

The setting at Céleste is superb – a richly decorated dining room, naturally illuminated during day by a domed glass roof, whilst seductively aglow under the softly lit chandeliers in the evening. It is a scene that transforms constantly throughout the day. As the light changes, so do the guests; from breakfast time to lunch to afternoon tea and dinner, it’s a beautiful and fascinating spectacle.

 

 

Ellory

Westgate Sreett, London Fields, London E8 3R

Seasonal British dishes and old-world wine in a light, airy space that blends antique and modern. Ellory is a product of both Matthew Young and Jack Lewens’ passions, now open on the ground floor of Netil House, Hackney, the creative suite next to London Fields. Young’s artsy past is in the décor – Ellory is a pepped out bistro with reused woods, clean new polishes and hard stones. Intelligent design in which simple seasonal food is made. Harnessing his interest in décor, Young designs his dishes by how they’ll look first – then devises their ingredients. Carefully selected ingredients in early dishes will include turbot, chestnuts, anise, chicory and ginger ice cream. Lewens’ Old World wine list will suit a fluid eating style: a by-the-glass menu to share with a plate; or a full dining experience, the five-course tasting menu with pairings which’ll change daily.
