Roast duck. It’s the whole reason you come to Four Seasons, and while most of the other things on the menu won’t blow you away, the duck is by far one of the best things you can eat in the area, if not all of central London. You’ll want at least a quarter per person, and you’ll want it off the bone. The sauce they pour all over it is incredible, and can allegedly cure everything from cancer to rheumatoid arthritis (though it will not cure herpes...according to a friend). The stewed pork belly with vegetables is also a good call, and the Chinese broccoli is worth ordering too. Bring friends. All of them.
