  1. Pollen Street Social and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

    1. Depending on how much notice you have and which reservations you can secure I would say the trendiest restaurants in London are probably Dinner by Heston, The Ledbury, Pollen Street Social, Hibiscus and St John Hotel. All quite different and all within striking distance of Knightsbridge.

        How hard is it to get reservations at Dinner? I just called (from the States) since today they open up their books for September (limited days because of renovations or something) and the automated message said all their lines are busy and it pretty much hung up on me. No music for waiting or anything. Then I called again and all I get are busy signals.

        Thanks.

          Try using their online booking system - always worked better for me than calling

          1. re: deepfry7

            Per their website, Dinner by Heston will be closed 1-22 Sep.
