Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London, England

This is a two Michelin star restaurant that if they ask me, I will recommend the stars be kept.  The restaurant is in a hotel which gives it certain advantages.  Like when we arrived out of the pouring rain our wet gear was lifted off of us, and returned hours later completely dry.  They have facilities in a hotel that a restaurant just doesn't have.
The food here is exceptional.  We chose the luncheon menu, which had few choices but all of them good, and at a considerably lower price.  We were amongst the few around us who were going for "the deal", but were very happy with it.  The theater of the restaurant is around the food being prepared from age old recipes.  Some several hundred years old.  One has to assume that the presentation has been updated, and the recipe re-interpreted, but it was fun to eat things that could have been eaten (by the well to do) in the same location years before.  This is a really great dining experience, and lunch is a very good deal.
