Fodor's Review

Bowler-hatted doormen greet the A-list with a discreet nod at this ever-fashionable seafood haven on fashion-central Mount Street in Mayfair. Originally 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 former hell-raiser Brit-pack artists Damien Hirst or Tracey Emin joshing around on a burgundy banquette nearby. Scott's draws London's top-tier 1% movers and shakers who enjoy day-boat-fresh Lindisfarne oysters, baked crab, whole salt-baked turbot, cod cheeks, and scrummy shrimp burgers. Glorious standouts like sautéed razor clams with wild boar sausages or sole Colbert are similarly divine. Prices could make a Saudi sheikh blanch, but fear not: this really is the hottest joint in town.
