Fodor's Expert Review Le Pont de la Tour

$$$ South of the Thames French
Formerly a temple to French haute cuisine, the restaurant has a new chef who has adopted a more innovative approach fused with Modern British touches, with dishes like hand-picked Devon crab with an apple and celeriac remoulade or Tournedos Rossini with seared duck foie gras and a truffle mash. Standards, like the prices, remain high, and the swanky dining room takes inspiration from the art deco liner the SS Normandie. A more informal bar and grill serves brasserie classics like mussels in a white wine and mustard sauce, slow-cooked beef cheek in a red wine sauce, and a croque monsieur served on brioche bread. Weather permitting, grab a table on the terrace to make the most of the wonderful views of the Thames, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London. A weekday lunch (and all-day Sunday) set menu let you sample this expense account favorite with minimal damage to your wallet.
