Looking for suggestions on our first visit to London. We are headed over to visit our son who is completing a semester of college. I've done much reading and would welcome any input as I need to try to secure some reservations. We will be there for a week and need help in several categories....
Would greatly appreciate a couple of fine dining restaurant suggestions. One of the nights we will be celebrating my son's 20th birthday. A few under consideration are:
The Ledbury (though I am skeptical about securing a reservation)
Gordon Ramsay @ 68 Royal
Waterside Inn (how far outside of London?)
Suggestions for sushi:
Nobu vs. Dinings vs. Kiku vs. Zuma
Are considering Wolseley for brunch....thoughts?
Would welcome suggestions also for great Italian, Indian cuisine and dim sum.
A few other establishments we are considering: Scotts, The Square, The Grill at the Dorchester(where we are staying), The Ivy, Bar Boulud, Sketch(The Lecture Room and Library), China Tang.
Lastly, we will be taking my son and several of his friends out one evening. Would you recommend someplace a bit on the more casual side with a lively atmosphere and great food? We were thinking either Italian or a really good pub. Having said that, I realize a lot of the pubs don't have great food, but if any come to mind that do, please feel free to mention.
Sorry so many questions in one post, but last minute plans and trying to get things situated. Any help GREATLY appreciated!
