If you’re in London, attending the 2012 Olympic Games, and want a culinary diversion, make reservations at St John Restaurant, a quintessential modern British dining experience.
It’s far from faddy, and Henderson’s commitment to well-sourced, simply cooked traditional food has stood the test of time: it’s still one of the most reliably exciting places to eat in London.
Forgotten cuts and obscure ingredients grace the twice-daily-changing menu, and while this stripped-down luxe doesn’t come cheap, St John remains a model other restaurants aspire to. World fame hasn’t gone to St John’s head: it has kept its integrity. A national treasure.
