Fine Dining & FUN London restaurants this Sunday/Monday Feb 28/March1
It's been Nobu Nobu Nobu every single (frequent) visit to London because nothing else "fun" is happening on these nights.
Recommendations would be so appreciated!
Sorry! "lively" "people watching" "energy"
It is very difficult to find very innovative, 'celebrity chef' cuisine and a fun scene. Perhaps the reason we eat at Nobu all the time in London, because formal restaurants with fabulous food are boring, and "lively" restaurants with a scene are uncomfortable and the food isn't the point.
In Manhattan, Cafe Boulud (Daniel Boulud) could be a good example if the clientele was a bit younger and more exciting. Still, there is always a "buzz"
I like Wolseley but go there too often as well. Someone suggested the sushi bar Roka (sp?)
re: Marisa Dvari
greedygirl is younger than I and has good suggestions. I used to live near Manhattan and went to Cafe Boulud when I was younger... but I was old even then. :-) Even we oldsters can often make a buzz.
I think Maze is good for people watching, and it's lively. You could try that one trip.
Thanks everyone -- well (sigh!) guess where I ended up going in my Sunday - Tuesday trip? Wolseley and Nobu!!!
I also met up with some fellow students in my wine program who went to Terroir (we were in the Basement, good food but s-l-o-w service) and alone I tried a restaurant called Garrison Public near my wine school. It was very good food for lunch.
I'm going to be in London a lot so if anyone has a Nobu/Wolseley replacement that would be fab.
I am entertaining on business and think I will book Marcus Wareing. I had been there with a group of four very late at night and liked the food and ambiance. Other thoughts?
Oh, here is a photo from my Wolsely lunch as I see an "attach photo" icon.
