New Year’s Eve Dinner in London – One O One Restaurant

Since we had planned our New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day stay at the Park Tower Knightsbridge Hotel, I also booked ourselves a nice New Year’s Eve dinner at the hotel’s 3 AA Rosette rated restaurant, One O One Restaurant. Known as one of the best seafood restaurants in London, Chef Pascal Proyart is passionate about seafood and has been at helmed at One O One Restaurant since 1998.

New Year’s Eve special menu priced at £99+ per person (as a discretionary 12.5% service charge would be added to the final bill), with 7 courses delicately planned for the special event. Starting from the Appetiser, with the cured & smoked Salmon served with Beetroot, Caviar, Rillettes, Celeriac and Lemon. Then we moved on to my favourite dish of the night, Lobster and Squid Riceless Risotto with Scallop, Cauliflower, Tapioca and Veloute. The Risotto was infused with extremely flavoursome foams and sauce that left me wanting for more!

Next up, we had the Halibut and Abalone with Sunchokes and Sea Spinach. The fish was cooked to perfection and we particularly loved the Sunchokes, as it was such a unique texture and tasted great with the rest of the plate. Our main course was the Beef Venison with Foie Gras, Carrot, Watercress and Truffle, which the beef was tender and juicy and the Foie Gras was strong in flavour.

Desserts

By this time, after 4 courses, we were already quite full although the portions looked small. We had 3 desserts soon after, Sorbet Fromage Frais with Champagne & Passion Fruit, as well as 55% Manjari Chocolate Pave with Gold Leaf, Nougat, Pistachio and Kulfi Saffron Ice Cream, before ended our dinner with Chef’s signature chocolate truffle and Petit Four. Dessert wise, I loved the Sorbet as I’m sucker for cold stuff but Big Teddy loved the Chocolate Pave with the fancy Gold Leaf.

Final Word

The final bill came up to £307 with a bottle of £65 white wine. It was a lovely dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. There were so much different great tastes and sensations going on with all those dishes. After the dinner, we retired back to our panoramic room upstairs and watched the whole London New Year’s fireworks on TV and partially from our room.

Despite the slightly unpleasant experience when I made the table booking for two in late November, where I had to go through the whole difficult process of signing credit card authorisation form and indemnity form which I felt that the restaurant could have upgraded to better online web services that could take care of all those manual paper forms instead of signing and emailing back and forth, still this dining experience at One O One Restaurant was definitely a highlight of our London New Year’s celebration this year.

  1. Wow this food looks delicious! I’m impressed with the quality of the photos – I’m always struggling to get good photos of the pretty food I’m eating at a nice low-lit restaurant. 🙂

  2. This looks like a diner one should savor. There are so many unique flavors offered with this meal it is good that each individual serving is but a small tapas. Truly a meal by which all other meals of the year could be judged.

  3. £99+ per person for 7 courses is a great deal! The dishes are so beautifully plated and look mouthwatering! I would love to try that Halibut and Abalone!!

  4. Sounds like a great way to spend New Years! All of the food looked amazing, especially the halibut course and the dessert! So many interesting flavor combinations. Would love to try One O One Restaurant sometime!

  5. Wow, I’ve never been in a fine dining restaurant, so this looks so fancy and delicious! The dessert with the gold leaf is very unique! I think that’s a pretty decent price, because in the US, it’d be about $300-500, I think for a 7 course fine dining meal.

  6. I’ve gotta admit, if there’s a bunch of stuff on a plate that I can’t rightly recognize, then it must be a culinary delight. Pretty fancy stuff, but I’ll keep it in mind in case of an eventual London trip someday!
