Hutong is the Shard’s ultra-swish Chinese restaurant, and if we were going to throw down on a pricey dinner with a view, this would be on our list. There’s no sesame chicken on the menu, but instead you’ll get polished version of Northern Chinese dishes like crispy shredded beef and chilli, Hunan-style lobster, and one of the best Peking ducks anywhere in town. Dim sum is also a highlight, and for extra-special occasions, they also have excellent private dining rooms so other diners can be spared your mate Chiara’s f-bomb-laden speech.
