Fodor's Expert Review Simon Radley at the Chester Grosvenor
$$$$ Chester French
Named for its noted chef, this Michelin-starred restaurant has a sophisticated panache and prices to match. Expect the seasonal but not the usual: the Two Hens features black-leg chicken alongside lobster, while the wild halibut comes with shaved octopus and seaweed dumplings. There's also a tasting menu with a wine flight for £45. The huge wine cellar has more than a thousand bins. Reservations are essential on weekends, and children must be at least 12.
