Fodor's Expert Review 21212

$$$$ New Town Sophisticated

Paul Kitching is one of Britain's most innovative chefs, and the theatrical dining experience at 21212 delivers surprises galore. Set within a Georgian town house, the Michelin-starred restaurant is sumptuously appointed while, behind a large glass screen, a small army of chefs is busy assembling the delicious and intricate dishes. The ever-changing five-course menu (£85) allows you to choose from two starters, two mains, and two desserts, with sublime soup and cheese courses sandwiched in between (21212, get it?). The belle époque decor and quirky crockery make this a perfect destination for couples (ask for a romantic alcove window table). If you want to make the experience last even longer, book a night in one of the four elegant bedrooms upstairs.
