More London Restaurants
Previously on this trip I blogged about several good restaurant experiences we had this trip including Crockfords, J. Sheekey, Caffe Vergnano, Hakkasan, and Busaba Eathai.
It is just not true anymore that London does not have great restaurants.
High-end British restaurants seem to have great oysters, and Dover Sole like we don’t get in the States. This is certainly true for Wiltons. It was definitely the most conservative restaurant visited this trip, with maybe the best oysters ever.
Equally good British dining was Bentley’s. The Dover sole may have been better yet. We ate in the Oyster Bar, which is a more casual area. It was kind of extra fun because the manager recognized me.
Cristini is a great neighborhood Italian restaurant.
We have eaten at Asia de Cuba in New York and loved it. It is equally good and slick here in London. You won’t find a better Asian and Cuban fusion restaurant. In fact, you probably won’t find any other Asian and Cuban fusion restaurant.
Sunday, since I couldn’t decide whether to start with breakfast or lunch, I chose Princi bakery. Who can dream up such places?
Their croissants were of equal high caliber to their pizzas. Weird place, great find, great food, and packed to the gills.
Another of London’s trendy restaurants we dined at was L’Anima. The Italian cuisine was terrific and the look is ultra modern, cool. London’s investment banker types frequent this restaurant located in the financial district. It was a bit too noisy for me, as are most trendy restaurants these days.
