Such menus are offered in many restaurants and represent a few small portions of the best dishes on choice of the chef and the most suitable to these dishes wine. Here is a list of the few most expensive restaurants in London, in which the tasting menus are definitely worth it.

Sketch

Restaurant Sketch is known for its quaint decor and it boasts of two Michelin stars. Two tasting menus, which you can try in the Lecture Room, are also very popular. The cost of a seven-course vegetarian menu for two is £190. The second option - with caviar, seafood, meat and fish - will cost £240 for two guests.

The Greenhouse

The restaurant, called "Orangery" has earned two Michelin stars since its opening in 1977, is much obliging. The famous Chef's Discovery menu of eight dishes is regularly updated and consists of: 1) white asparagus with strawberries, nettles and lice; 2) the Orkney scallop with verbena, green tomato "zebra" and samfir; 3) foie gras with basmati rice, smoked eel and apple vinegar; 4) halibut with cauliflower, lemon, green onions and match tea; 5) selected pork tenderloin with eggplant, onions, dried sausage from the Balearic Islands and smoked pimento cheese; 6) pigeon with rhubarb, greens and cocoa; 7) peach with pink petals and pepper; 8) and for dessert - strawberries with match tea, apple and fragrant lemon.

All this abundance will cost 290 pounds for two. If you want, you can add wine suitable for dishes for £190 per guest.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

The famous Scottish chef and restaurateur, Chevalier of the Order of the British Empire Gordon Ramsey - the first Scot who won three Michelin stars and did not stop at the achieved (in total he owns as many as 16 Michelin stars - previously only French could boast of it) – suggests, in the most famous from his restaurants in Chelsea, tasting menus for every taste: from traditional gourmet dishes such as pressed foie gras, to lemon parfait with yoghurt from sheep's milk for dessert. The cost of the menu of eight dishes for two – starts from £290.

The Dorchester

Alain Ducasse, is the only chef awarded three Michelin stars in three restaurants at the same time. Creativity, impeccable service and exquisite cuisine – that is what distinguishes the restaurant of the famous master in Mayfair. The tasting menu includes the following seven courses: 1) Dorset crab with celery and caviar; 2) foie gras with figs and walnuts; 3) sea bass with cucumber and juniper; 4) duck breast with turnips and orange; 5) four types of French cheese; 6) lobster with truffles and chicken knels; 7) berry-cheese dessert. The cost of the menu for two will be £315 plus £360 for specially selected wines.

The Araki

This Japanese restaurant, rightfully deserving three Michelin stars, specializes exclusively in sushi. This is not surprising, because the chef, Mitsuhiro Araki, is one of the world famous sushi-masters. The only permanent menu called Omakase consists of 11 dishes. The chief warns: his restaurant does not serve fried in oil dishes. Also, do not expect tempura, teriyaki or meat. But extravagant sushi, sashimi from sea bream, tuna with truffles and Irish abalone for sure will surpass the most daring expectations of gourmets. The cost of tasting will be £600 for two, and this is without alcohol.
