To coincide with the upcoming release of the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street Hotel will introduce a dedicated Special Agents menu, influenced by Ian Fleming's iconic books and movies.

In celebration of the 23rd film, this menu will showcase some of the English spy’s favorite food, presenting some of the memorable dishes that 007 has enjoyed over the past 60 years.

Available throughout November, the menu include creamy scrambled eggs and caviar, grilled lamb cutlets in a red wine sauce with mint buttered peas and garlic roasted potatoes and vodka-marinated strawberry jelly and cream.

The menu is available now in Dial - a modern bar and restaurant which is perfect for pre-theatre dining and post-theatre drinking. The menu is below.

Aperitif

1953 Casino Royale “Vesper Martini”

3 parts gin & 1 part vodka with a splash of Noilly Prat, shaken not stirred, served with one olive

Starter

Free range creamy scrambled eggs and caviar, steamed asparagus, melba toast and whipped bacon butter

Ian Fleming’s favorite food was scrambled eggs, so much so that it became Bond’s speciality when he found himself entertaining female companions the morning after.

Main

Grilled lamb cutlets, cooked medium, red wine sauce, mint buttered peas and garlic roasted new potatoes

In Moonraker, Bond dines in London with M at a private club. Here, he enjoys a main course of lamb cutlets, peas and new potatoes.

Dessert

Vodka marinated strawberries, strawberry jelly and cream

Diamonds Are Forever sees 007 back in New York, making the most of its culinary offerings. One night, dining alone at Voisin's, he enjoys "two Vodka Martinis, Oeufs Benedict and strawberries" - a true celebration to Vodka and Strawberries.
