It wasn't long after the turn of the millennium that Restaurant Gordon Ramsay summited the London scene. Silken service, exquisite seasonal French cuisine and an ambience of unfailing suavity have kept it there ever since. Today, still festooned with Michelins, it's a bucket-list destination for even the highest-flying groups. A four-seat Inspiration Table offers rare insight as chefs create and prep their latest dishes right in front of guests. For bigger parties, the only option is exclusive hire.
