This board has been quite reliable when I've planned visits throughout the US and Europe. Going to London for a few days, and will refrain from asking the general question (still trying to nail a good Indian restaurant, but no lack of options, too many actually).
Anyhow, the question is this: For my "splurge meal" (cost is not an object): Restaurant Gordon Ramsey (Royal Hospital Road) or The Ledbury? Not looking to spend money just for the sake of it, but am seeking a superlative dining (food + atmosphere) experience. Been to a number of Michelin three-stars in France, so wondering whether the drill's the same in London (the stars appear to be based more on the theatrics than the food, which was still excellent).
