new york hound visting for 6 days
what are the good and hot places to eat in london?
Take a look at...
Bumpkin in Notting Hill - retro 70s fare like homemade pies, great atmosphere
E&O in Notting Hill - a bit fusion, but pretty safe for your friend?
The Pig's Ear - Chelsea - good dependable french/classic/british fare
The Thomas Cubitt in Belgravia - upmaket pub grub: steak and chips, burgers, etc
All very buzzy, with great food and atmosphere.
Good places to look at reviews include squaremeal.co.uk and toptable.co.uk
Nightclubs - try Amika on High St Kensington or Chloe in South Kensington...
Hope that helps. If you like the look of thse places let me know and i'll think of a few more!
