One night in London
We will be passing through London on our way to Africa on December 23. Any recommendations for a wonderful dinner in London? We have a reservation at fifteen now...but any other ideas would be greatly appreciated! Looking for great food, comfortable and not terribly expensive. We are staying the Knightsbridge area.
I agree with the Wild Honey and L'Autre Pied suggestions as very good. Arbutus is another possibility (sister to Wild Honey), as well as Maze. If you don't mind a little travel across the cirty, one of the most unique experiences in London and anywhere, really, is St. John, with Fergus Henderson's use of all parts of the animal in his cooking. The roasted bone marrow is the best that I've had, and it's the one must-try thing on the menu (it's the only thing always on the menu). If you don't like meat, it's not for you.
Fifteen is on the other side of London to Knightsbridge, and I would say there are plenty of better dining experiences on offer in London - was there a particular reason for going there? There are many threads on the board for recommendations, but for about the same price (but much better value and food) I would suggest Wild Honey, Le Cafe Anglais, Hereford Road or L'Autre Pied.
