Hello I just spent the two hours compiling this list and hoping for help for anything I missed. We are renting a flat on Gloucester Road, near the intersection of Queens Gate Terrace for a week in October (I think this is in Howlers neighborhood?). We will be traveling with 2 children (both under 2 and in strollers) and 3 adults. We will also be spending a lot of time over at Regents Park for art exhbits.
1. Looking for casual places that we won't find here in NY or Boston where we can sit down with everyone
2. Places to take out and eat at the flat (I couldn't figure out which places were good to take out except for Bosphorus Kebab) or at a Park
3 And one or two more high end places when we leave the kids at home.
4. Would like to add more Indian to this list if possible
