EAT SOMEWHERE NEW: THE CONNAUGHT GRILL
Well, not entirely new, but still… After 20 years away, the Connaught Grill is back. Its open kitchen – with that eponymous wood-burning grill – is led by world-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. His menu of British produce showcases dishes such as wagyu beef and spit-roasted organic chicken, served alongside an extensive wine list from the hotel’s own cellar. The Connaught Grill used to be heralded as one of the best restaurants in London; get yourself down there to find out if it still deserves the accolades.
