This week we're counting down towards announcing the best restaurant in London on Tuesday August 11. We'll be revealing the top ten one by one each day. And so without further ado, St John is in at number seven.
Our review says:
'Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver’s restaurant – now the heart of a mini-empire with branch, bakery and wine dealership – has been praised to the skies for reacquainting the British with the full possibilities of native produce, and especially anything gutsy and offal-ish. St John’s cooking is famously full-on, but also sophisticated, concocting flavours that are delicate as well as rich. This is powerful cooking, so if you go for a full dinner, including the great neo-traditional puds, leave time for digestion.'
