Alain Ducasse , LONDON.

A pre Xmas meal at the 3 Michelin starred `Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester` hotel in London. A stunning hotel and an amazing looking restaurant. The service was classic and extremely attentive,  top of the tree faultless. Chef Jean-Philippe Blondet  worked in the restaurant under Executive chef Jocelyn Herland and took over the kitchens after Chef Herlands departure in 2016.  As for the food – it was enjoyable , accurately cooked and very safe . I`ll politely say that in my own opinion ,  I would categorize it as a  good 1 star pushing for 2. Beggars belief how it is managing to retain its 3 Michelin stars , or even how it got them in the first place.

Enough said , here`s our Menu – Chef Ducasse / Blondets Tasting menu Alain Ducasse , dorchester
