The best restaurants in London

Knightsbridge may be dominated by two shopping emporiums - Harrods and Harvey Nichols - but there's a lot more to look out for in the area, not least the London home of Heston Blumenthal. And what for special events in the two department stores as they've been upping their game too. After all, a trip to Knightsbridge isn't complete without a quick look in the Harrods Food Hall.
