Trendy / Lively London Restaurant

Greetings. My company, CORK & TEE Epicurean Golf Travel, has designed a 22-day customized golf travel program to Ireland and Scotland including some GREAT dinners! The clients will be spending two nights in London, which is really not one of our destinations so I'm looking for some dining advice. This is a very high-end couple from San Francisco. While they are 70, they like lively/trend high-end restaurants..very much top restaurants of the moment. Thus, I'm looking for suggestions. In general, they'd be looking for Continental/Modern European cuisine although they would not be opposed to a hip Indian spot. One place I personally loved is Tamarind, although it is not particularly new.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. For what it's worth, they are staying at The Berkeley.

    That sentence made me laugh.

    Just a few names... The Ledbury, Bar Boulud, Pied a Terre. I'm sure others will hae more suggestions for you. Maybe Amaya for 'hip' Indian?

      Amaya's lovely, very busy and buzzy without being noisy. Excellent food, though our hosts ordered the tasting menu for everyone so I wasn't able to try everything I'd have liked. Good cocktails.

      Bruno Loubet?
