Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
January 22, 2019
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal was the 13th restaurant on Jonathan's quest to visit 50 of the World’s Best Restaurants. It ranked 36th on the list in 2017 and 45th in 2018.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal was the fourth restaurant on our London adventure. Our plans included meeting up with Andy and his partner, and a tasting menu.
No plan survives first contact.
Andy arrived, but his partner was sick and couldn't make the journey. The tasting menu had a couple items that really did not excite me (hello, chicken liver), so when Andy asked for modifications to the tasting menu, could they make the menu pescatarian, I jumped on the chance to also have a non-odd menu. Unfortunately, the tasting menu is an all-or-nothing menu for the entire table, so we thwarted Jonathan's plans.
While I am sad about thwarting Jonathan's tasting menu rhythm, I am anything but sad about the actual food.
