2016 Top 10 Modern British Restaurants in London

Restaurant Story, one of Gayot's Top 10 Modern British Restaurants in London

Modern British cuisine emerged as a reaction against the drop in culinary standards after World War II, particularly in the 1950s and '60s. It takes traditional cooking as its base but adds international ingredients, flavours and cooking methods and draws heavily on Mediterranean influences while also incorporating Asian traditions.
