Prince Philip: Support for Queen 'can't be criticised' says expert
The original home at No.17 Bruton Street, Mayfair, London, was heavily damaged during the Blitz, and its actual date of demolition remains unclear. However, in 2010, the historic residence became home to a fancy Chinese restaurant called Hakkasan.
The award-winning restaurant describes itself as a “a leading destination for modern Cantonese cuisine in London.”
The restaurant was also awarded a Michelin star within two years of opening and has maintained its rating every year since.
The trendy restaurant offers a wide variety of culinary choices including an original creation of steamed New Zealand mini lobster, black truffle roast duck, and sliced blue abalone in Hakka sauce.
The destination is actually a small chain of restaurants that have two venues in London and the US and others in the Middle East, Asia Minor, India and China.

The venue sees its fair share of celebrity guests, including Rhianna, Kanye West, Britney Spears and Naomi Campbell.
For an extra royal twist, the venue also served Princess Eugenie back in 2012.
The only remaining evidence of the building’s historic legacy is a plaque, which reads: “On the site stood the townhouse of the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne where Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, later to become Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, was born on April 21, 1926.”
At the time of her birth the then-Duchess of York was not expected to ever sit on the throne.
Back in 1936, when Elizabeth was 10 years old, her uncle Edward VIII sat on the throne, but abdicated within one year to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

Writing to Princess Louise just a couple of days after the birth of Elizabeth, Prince Albert - who would later become King George VI - told of how his daughter was “too delicious”.
In the letter, as quoted by Royal Central, he wrote: “It was too nice of you to have written to me and I do thank you so much for congratulating us on our little girl.
"She is too delicious and is such a great joy to us both.
"Elizabeth [the Duchess of York] is progressing wonderfully well and the baby is flourishing.
