Recommendations in London [moved from Phoenix board]

[NOTE: We've moved this discussion from the Phoenix board at -- The Chowhound Team]


Have reservations at Dinner and St. John's but after that nothing else. Staying in Victoria and one dinner will be with friends in Brighton. so looking for three more nights. I suppose I should probably use my resources and troll the UK board! Too funny about your nephew- good brews can tend to do that to you!

  1. My recs. start in Mayfair, and then go through central Westminster/London to Soho.

    Outside of London, I am always searching, as we seldom have the time [frown] to explore outside of central London.

    Mayfair area:

    Galvin, atop the Hilton Park Lane - Michelin starred restaurant with a striking view
    Gordon Ramsay - Claridges - a master chef does his thing in an elegant setting
    Gordon Ramsay - MAZE - Ramsay with a lower key, but very good
    Gordon Ramsay - Petrus - get the chef's table downstairs, and just relax and enjoy
    Butler's @ The Chesterfield - really good British fare w/ a cool wine list
    The Green House - excellent fusion, with a French touch on Hays Mews (hard to find)
    Tamarind - Michelin starred Indian
    L'Orangier - great French on St. James
    Le Gavroche - great French on Upper Brook (Relais & Chateaux)
    L'Atelier - Joël Robuchon does great things in Soho (better than his LV restaurant)
    La Trompette - mid-scale in Cheswick (fun new-wave cuisine)
    Le Boudin Blanc - mid-scale French in Shepard Market, Mayfair

    Those make my upper list. Once one gets much beyond Central London, I am asking for recs. myself.

    Good luck, and travel safely,
