Saturday lunch in Finsbury Park [London]
I'm moving to Finsbury Park/Manor House and want to go out for a big lunch with my parents. We are adventurous eaters who like a variety of cuisines. I've done some research on chowhound and the internet in general, and I've come up with: Little Sardegna, Il Baccio, Dotori and Chez Liline as possibilities although I'm very interested in other places to eat, too.
There are some conditions:
The restaurant must be walkable (I live between the tube stations)
My mum is a coeliac so there need to be multiple things that don't contain gluten for her to eat.
No more than £20 per person (before drinks and tip).
The restaurant needs to be open for lunch.
Is Chez Liline still worth it? I've read a mixed bag of reviews. As neither of my parents like sushi, should I eliminate Dotori from the list?
Any help is much appreciated.
Based on our meal there, I'd say that the sushi not only can be avoided but should be avoided. A few people in our group ordered rolls, and they were lousy. The Korean food is MUCH better.
Is Green Lanes too far to go? We had an excellent meal at Diyarbakir on our last visit.
Have eaten at Chez Liline 3 times, most recently in Feb this year and all were great. Updates would be great since it's been a while. Would probably be very close to £20 per person for food.
