West London is lovely (and Pricey). As always it depends where you can afford, recently, Kings Road and Chelsea are being dominated by restaurant chains. Some of these include Busaba Eathai, Wagamama and a few more.
I like these places but luckily have been to a few other places and tasted some great food.
Please see my Top 5 below.
The Painted Heron: A lovely restaurant on Cheyne Walk, where Mick Jagger used to live. Quality Indian Food by Chef Yogesh Datta, with great service and lots of highlights, from the Main course to Dessert.
Worlds End Market: Meat or Fish in high quality in this old pub. A good experience within a good venue. The drinks menu is also up there and you could easily stay after dinner to soak up the atmosphere.
Vicino Restaurant: Homemade Italian style cooking, with a signature dish of Lobster Linguine. Garlic is there in abundance and it is all about simple cooking done well.
Big Easy: The Home of the American BBQ in London and the UK. This site is one of the originals and brings you big platters of seafood or smoked meats. The lunchtime deals are also well worth a try for good value.
Restaurant Gordon Ramsay: My first time experiencing a 3 star Michelin restaurant and it was good. I am not sure if it is worth the price, but I didn’t pay. Go for the full service and being treated like a mini-celebrity. The food isn’t too bad either.
Good options and choices in the area. The radius was slightly extended and a notable mention for The Beaumont which was the venue for my friends’ wedding reception. Now, I just need to try and find a place to live around there.
Mayfair is THE MUST HAVE destination on a Monopoly board. It is an area in London which screams opulence, wealth, class and expensive. The list of restaurants here follows that trend and I have been lucky to go, albeit weighing heavy on my wallet.
Great restaurants which attract a certain clientele. those with money. In most instances, you get what you pay for and with these five that is the case.
Let me know what you think.
North London stand up.
Stoke Newington is or WAS the latest so-called trendy place. I live close by, therefore I am trendy. YOU GET ME?
This long stretch of road is full of restaurants, not many or ANY chains on the block but a lot of feel-good places. Have a look at TripAdvisor and you will see the conundrum.
This Top 5 was a bit difficult for me on my own, so I enlisted the help of a few friends. Thanks Oran.
The locals love the food and the food is for the locals.
People are more than happy to travel for good food. When the food is quality than this doesn’t become an issue. Also, when you tell people you are going to Stoke Newington, your cool factor immediately goes up.
