Gourmet temple
Worth a visit for the sumptuous interior alone. David Collins has filled this culinary Mecca in Soho with cubist chandeliers that hang from a high mirrored ceiling. Diners sit on dark blue leather benches. The menu ranges from classic British dishes to Russian specialities such as oysters, caviar or truffle vareniki (stuffed dumplings). A wonderfully decadent touch is the champagne button on every table: just press it, and the champagne trolley will immediately appear.
