Trip to London- Please help NYC Chowhounds
We welcome suggestions on moderate restaurants and good pubs. We know that it is quite expensive so having recommended places to go will be appreciated. We enjoy fresh fish and seafood but prefer it broiled not fried. We are open to ethnic restaurants and would do a one night splurge based on a Chowhound's opinion!
Thanks in advance,
Fish restaurants in London tend to be top end = Signor Zilli, J Sheeky
Fishworks is a small chain of fish restaurants that also double up as a fishmonger. Very fresh and you can pick from the menu, or choose from what they have got that day.
Randall and Aubin http://www.randallandaubin.co.uk/ is quite an interesting one. A very lively fish restaurant in Soho with an atmosphere like I have never experienced.
Other restaurants, there are so many but my most recent good dining has been at:
Busaba Eathai - pretty cheap, you can't book and there will be a Q but it goes down fast, good lunch place
Pubs - The hampstead area is great for good pub food - The Hill nr Belsize park tube and The Lansdowne and The engineer in Primrose Hill are very good (and you can take in the fabulous view first).

hello, could you tell us where abouts in London you will be staying or speding most of your time as it will then be easier to recommend places...
The Anglesea Arms (Ravenscourt Park tube stop), The Dove (on the Thames, Hammersmith tube), Monkey Chews (Chalk Farm tube) - all quite different, all good food pubs. For seafood, J Sheekey or one of the Fishworks... Where are you staying?
