The Freemasons at Wiswell
London, London - West
Tucked shyly into the depths of Pimlico lies this veritable emperor of dining - but yet relatively low-key. In Hunan, you are not offered a choice, other than having your dislikes, allergies and spice preferences queried.
Here, you just have to sit back and let the experts do their stuff. The menu is lunch at £45.80pp and dinner at £67.50pp. They serve small tapas-size portions of food with the emphasis on sharing many courses. It's like having your own personal chef and the result is a unique meal experience. Hunan is also known for its carefully-composed wine list. There's a focus on Bordeaux, Burgundy and the New World (Australia, California, Argentina), but Italy, Austria, Germany and Spain are also represented. Fine wine at a fair price is the aim. An emphasis on half-bottles rather than single glasses also ensures every wine is served in tip-top condition. Giles Coren once said whilst writing for The Times about Hunan, 'I have long accepted that it may be the best Chinese restaurant in the world'.
