26 St John St
London EC1M 4AY Greater London, United Kingdom
Arguably London’s most influential restaurant, St John’s claim to fame is its proprietor, one Fergus Henderson, who has been instrumental in getting people to embrace the idea of eating an animal’s less desirable parts (see, guts). At heart though, St John is just a damn good restaurant, with simple and perfect dishes of meat, game and fish served on a menu that changes twice daily. Make like the regulars and snag a table at the fun and more informal bar, where everything from the bone marrow with toast to a simple soup has had an inordinate amount of care poured into it.
