We will be in London for a week, arriving December 31. It's a last minute trip so I'm trying to pull together dining ideas. Any help appreciated!
We will be staying near Covent Garden so I'm interested in local restaurants but don't mind traveling for good food. We generally only want one big meal a day. I like to take advantage of lunch deals at nice restaurants but given the short daylight hours, may have to pass on this and go for dinners instead.
This is very vague but what I have so far:
12/31 - I know we will be tired and jet-lagged so I am looking for an early (but festive) dinner in the Covent Garden area.
1/1 - Brunch at Indigo. Not sure how much will be open in the evening - maybe a nice pub?
1/2 - Lunch near the British Museum? Sunday night recommendations?
1/3 - Pre-theater at The Ivy? Is it worth it?
1/4 - Looking for a great tea after the V&A. I have read mixed reviews about The Orangery - any other suggestions? What about Harrods? We'll probably skip dinner tonight.
1/5 - Lunch at the Swan and probably late tea at the Tate. Again, may skip dinner.
1/6 - Last night so I would like something special. Maybe Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's or La Gavroche? Open to suggestions.
