This world famous restaurant was started by French Chef Claude Bosi and his wife Claire. However, this London restaurant does not have French overtones and rather has a menu inspired by British culinary fare. The menu of this restaurant is supervised by head chef Marcus Mc Guinness, who has come from Paris to serve here.
Do expect a surprise treat of 4, 6, or 8 courses on Friday and Saturday. The interiors of this place are a notch behind contemporary times and youâll find gray chairs, wood paneled rooms and the domination of a large chandelier. On your entrance, you are served champagne and light snacks.
Where is it?
The Bosiâs started the Hibiscus Restaurant in the town of Ludlow. It was opened in the UK in 2001 and tasted success almost immediately. The first feather on its cap was when it was awarded the first Michelin Star in 2001 and after three years, the second Michelin Star. It is now relocated on the busy streets of Londonâs Mayfair and adorned with Michelin stars.
