Liveried doormen greet the A-list with a nod at this fashionable seafood haven on Mount Street in Mayfair. Orginally founded in 1851, and a former haunt of James Bond author Ian Fleming (he liked the potted shrimps, apparently), these days you're more likely to see Bill Clinton in one corner, Kate Winslet in another, and Brit-pack artists Damien Hirst or Tracy Emin joshing around on a banquette nearby. Scott's draws London's movers and shakers who enjoy day-boat-fresh
Lindisfarne oysters, baked crab, cod cheeks, and shrimp burgers. Glorious standouts like sautéed razor clams with wild boar sausages or sole Colbert are divine. Prices could make a Saudi shiekh blanch, but fear not: this really is the hottest joint in town.
