Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester
“Flawless modern French cooking in an iconic venue.” - AA Inspector
LONDON W1, LONDON POSTAL DISTRICTS
The main restaurant at this legendary hotel on Park Lane, Alain Ducasse’s flagship at The Dorchester is characterised by its elegant contemporary haute-cuisine, with distinctive fresh flavours and executed with a light and surprising twist. Ducasse’s approach is interpreted by a team led by the characterful style of Executive Chef Jean-Philippe Blondet. The technical brilliance of French cuisine – with a focus on the sauces – is brought to life through the finest seasonal produce, sourced at their peak, from British and French suppliers. A meal might begin with a luxurious starter of hand-dived scallop, citrus beurre blanc and Kristal caviar, before an impeccably timed piece of Cornish turbot, courgette and sea thong marinated in green anise and loquat. For meat eaters, there’s veal from Corrèze with crapaudine beetroot, rhubarb and Kampot pepper. A refreshing finale might be the strawberries ‘in their natural way’ with yogurt and fennel sorbet.

About the area
The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.
London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
