Nobu'd out in London!

awinestory Jan 20, 2010 04:31 PM

Hello everyone!

Yes, Nobu is fab, yet In a three day trip we went their twice - once by design, once because it was the only place we could think of that would be semi-happening at 10:30 on a monday.

We checked out Mint Leaf on a recommendation - it was closing at ten. No one there.

Any kind people with fab suggestions of trendy restaurants that also serve good food?


Fun lunch spots with great food and a scene a la La Caprice are also welcome.

    Hakkasan is trendy and yummy.
    Not trendy but still lovely is the wolesey in Piccadilly... good fro breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner!

      Yauatcha. Asia de Cuba too though I think it is hugely over priced. Hix, Dean Street Townhouse and Pizza East all attracting a crowd now. I love the oyster bar at J Sheekey too.

        Oo, and Zuma and Roka too are very scene-y, but good with it.

          Thanks! For whatever reason, I didn't respond to Hakkkassan when I went a few years ago - hit Wolesey as always do on trip -- heard Roka is fun so will try that and Zuma.

          I went to Foliage at the Mandarian Oriental and found it fab. If I review on my site is the appropriate thing to post it here rather than link?

              Isn't Foliage closed? The chef left last year and the space is going to be the new Heston Blumenthal place.

              Best to post a review and add the link. A link without a review gets frustrating.
