Look no further than the intriguing cocktail flights distilling the Blumenthal ethos into drinkable form. History and innovation collide in three-part riffs on classic drinks from the Martini to the Negroni, with snacks taken care of thanks to duck and beetroot crackers seasoned with native peppers and a Scotched quail egg with devilled ketchup. Newly open to non-diners without a booking (although it may be wise to secure a spot online), just turn up to claim a perch overlooking the greatest bartending show in town.
