Eating in department stores is convenient when one is busy shopping, and Knightsbridge is no exception with both Harrods and Harvey Nichols offering high end eating establishments within their shopping offering, and this is not your average shop canteen, but super refined tastes, flavours and ingredients. At Harvey Nichols Fifth floor most of it is organic to boot, a simple, well execute menu. If it's Arabic flavours you are looking for then try Mamounia which spans Morocco to the Middle East serving up Lebanese Mezze and Moroccan Tagines. If it's superstar chefs you are after, there are plenty to choose from in this part of town, but two who stand out are Marcus Waering at the Berkeley and Heston Blumental, the magician of molecular cuisine at the Mandarin Oriental.
Nobu combines star chef status with Japanese with a twist food, and again, it might now be an internationally renowned concern, but for a reason, the tastes, presentation and flavours on offer here are a once in a lifetime experience, that is, unless you actually live in Knightsbridge. This area in London boasts some of the priciest real estate in the world. One Hyde Park development sold its most expensive property off plan for an estimated 100 million pounds to a Qatari prince, another one is said to have been sold for a similar figure to an Afghani prince. Knightsbridge has long had an association with the rest of the world and its rich cultural mix is reflected in its restaurants.
