London in August
I'm traveling to London with my daughter and granddaughter (age 14) in August for 6 days.
We will need to stretch our food/Sightseeing dollars. We are staying near St. James Park.
Would love to get restaurant suggestions from people who have traveled with sophisticated teen age girls.
All sorts of places spring to mind - these are mainly chains, but have cool interiors and quirks: Ping Pong for dim sum, Masala Zone for thali, Wagamama, Taro - both for Japanese canteen-style, Itsu for sushi. Leon for an organic lunch.
St Christopher's Place has loads of restaurants, and a lively atmosphere, and Canteen in Spitalfields market is good.
You could also grab a picnic from Fortnum & Mason, then head to St James' Park...
There's a very good early dinner special price at Belgo near Covent Garden. You can check their website for prices and the hours. It's a Belgian restaurant with good chicken, moules, frites etc. Every teenager I've taken there seems to enjoy the atmosphere (waiters dressed as monks) and the food.
