We're staying near Hyde Park and are looking for "neighborhood" places to eat. We live in NYC and when we go out we tend to frequent the local "dives". We're not limited to the Hyde Park area, but within short travel distance is preferred.
Recommendations for friendly pubs, an Indian restaurant, a place to get fish and chips, etc. are all welcome.
Also taking suggestions for a family Christmas and/or Boxing Day meal.
Thanks in advance.
