Scott's Review

Liveried doormen greet the A-list with a discreet nod at this glamorlicious seafood haven and crustacea bar on fashion-central Mount Street, the new heart of Mayfair. Orginally founded in 1851, and a former haunt of James Bond author Ian Fleming (he adored the potted shrimps), 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 Tracy Emin, playing up on a banquette nearby. Scott's draws London's real movers-and-shakers and the attendant beautiful ones, who enjoy day-boat fresh Lindisfarne oysters, baked crab, cod cheeks, shrimp burgers, and lobster Americaine. Magnificent standouts like sautéed razor clams with wild boar sausages or sole Colbert with maître'd hôtel butter are to die for. Prices would make a Saudi shiekh blanch, but fear not: this really is the hottest joint in town.
