Hg2 : The Hedonist

Blueprint Café

Smart seasonal British cooking from evergreen Scot Jeremy Lee with a very fine view, across the Thames from its glazed terrace that takes in the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the Gherkin, thrown in. They’re kind enough to include a pair of disposable binoculars on the table to allow diners to make the most of their enviable vantage point. The Blueprint celebrates 20 years on the first floor of Design Museum come 2009. Lee has cooked there since 1989 and takes an accomplished but unfussy approach in a daily-changing menu that takes inspiration and ingredients from his native Scotland, particularly in the colder months, and Europe throughout the year. Lee’s way with game is especially worth the journey. Formerly every sane diner’s favourite Conran dining room, it’s currently the thinking restaurant-goers pick of the rechristened D&D London stable.
