Pali Hill has taken over the old Gaylord site in Fitzrovia. It is a much more modern restaurant that the traditional Gaylord, and featured some enjoyable dishes in the meal that we had there, such as an excellent chaat and a very good Alphonso mango cheesecake for dessert. The décor is much improved and the staff seemed keen, with an interesting menu. I imagine that it will prosper.

The Ritz continues to deliver one of the top fine dining experiences in London. Quite apart from the glorious dining room and silky smooth service, the kitchen uses high quality produce and has the resources to make very labour intensive dishes, such as old school French sauces. As well as some classic dishes like the langoustines in herb nage, there were a few new dishes such as a lovely pistachio tartlet and a good sea bass dish.
