Italian, French and Fusion in London
I will be living in London for the next couple months and am looking for some great Italian, French and Fusion (French-Japanese or the like) places for a higher-end lunch or dinner with friends (40₤ pp before the wine). Though ambiance is important, food quality is the priority. Additionally, any recommendations for more modest tasting menus (50₤ range) would be greatly appreciated. I am living in central London but am willing to travel anywhere around the city for some great food. Cheers.
I usually think of "higher end" as places listed in the Good Food Guide with a cooking score of 6 and up. Here's the listings for central London:
L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon
Galvin @ Windows
Helene Darroze at the Connaught
