  • Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester - a return visit


    It's all change at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester where there's a new Executive Chef at the helm. Jean-Philippe Blondet was previously head chef under Jocelyn Herland who has moved to Le Meurice, before taking up his current position.

    It's all change once more at the May Fair Kitchen which is closing for a do-over of both the space and the menu. The restaurant at the May Fair hotel, which previously operated as a British grill, has gone all continental. They've brought in Amir Jati, the former head of private dining at Nobu to help switch it over to Mediterranean small plates.

    Looks-wise, the space sounds like it'll be a lot airier with floor to ceilings windows replacing walls

    So this is a bit of fun. The Savoy has introduced a Temptation Wheel - a roulette game where the wheel decides what chocolates, desserts or cocktail you go for. It's to showcase the new evening menu at the hotel's Thames Foyer where they currently do afternoon tea.

    The idea is that you call for the wheel, which rolled to the table on a trolley. It's then spun and depending on where it ends up you choose a dessert matched with a hand-made chocolate and
