Michelin Two Stars - London
I went to the Ledbury abotu 6 months ago for my Birthday.
Very welcomign staff, who didn't look down on us despite it beign obvious that this wasn't our regular budget.
It was quite , quite which is a little hard when you have a voice like mien that tends to carry very easily.
The food is what you can expect, i don't think i am really in a postion to comment if it was worth 2 stars, but i perfered the main over the starter and the cheese board was fantastic.
Of those, I would be chosing between The Ledbury and Marcus Wareing. I have eaten at Hibiscus and agree with Spiritchaser's comments - it just feels too formal. I am also far from convinced that the food is of 2 star quality (at least at lunch).
However, you have not mentioned Le Gavroche - is there a reason why not? For me, this is best 2 star (or indeed any star) lunch in London at the moment. I also always feel that Le Gav is a better option when it is colder as its setting feels much more appropriate than in the Summer.
@dustbuddy and ManinTransit,
I have not eaten at Le Gavroche & know it has a great reupation, for some reason it has never been on my radar.
I found Roux at the Landau via Le Gavroche website & wondered whether you could shed light on this venue.
I like the idea of not having to order from 2 starters & 2 mains which would normally be the norm if one did not go 'off piste'.
