Fodor's Review

Splendidly revived old English dishes executed with ultramodern precision is the schtick at Ashley Palmer-Watts's award winner in the Mandarin Oriental (Palmer-Watts is a protégé of TV chef Heston Blumenthal, who's closely involved). As you take in views of Hyde Park, slice into a Meat Fruit appetizer (circa 1500), deceptively shaped like a mandarin but encasing the smoothest foie gras and chicken liver parfait you can imagine. A plate of Rice and Flesh (circa 1390) is a picture of yellow saffron rice with calves' tails, and grilled octopus Frumenty (circa 1390) is a lively dish of cracked wheat with lovage in a sea broth dating to the court of Richard II. Finish off with resplendent pineapple Tipsy cake (circa 1810), an homage to English spit-roasting from centuries past.
