Please help a NYC Hound again!

Hello There Hounds! I’m a Manhattan hound and am headed for London and Paris in September for about 10 days of food and drink. I visited London about 2 years back and you guys were great so I’m coming to you once again!

My thread from Last Time

The man and I finally got hitched after 11 years together so although this is our honeymoon we are more about trying good beer and food than actualy being romanatic.

So I have lots of ideas and questions. We get in on Friday morning and are staying in Trafalager Square again. We already know we want to revisit J Sheekys for their seafood plateau and we already made reservations for dinner at St. Johns on Saturday. I’m planning a breakfast at some point at either the National Arts club or the Wosley.

Last time we really enjoyed Masters fish for fish and chips but we’d love to ftry something new this time around the same quality and value. Suggestions?

I’ve also been scouring the boards for good but not break the bank options for lunch and dinner. Obviously St. John and Sheekeys are on the pricier side. I’m considering a lunch at Arbutus or Haywood Arms. Haywood seems pretty far from where we are- is it worth the trip?

Viajante looks extremely interesting. I wonder if we can make a reservation just to sit at the bar and enjoy some food and cocktails to keep the price point down? Or is there a night we would have no problem stopping by?

Coaches and Arms looks nice- I can’t find out any info on their Sunday night jazz. Maybe it’s no longer around?

I see Donovans has jazz every night but I’m thinking the cost of cocktails might not be worth it. Am I right?

Besides food we like just going from pub to pub enjoying good beers. I was wondering if there was any pub we shouldn’t miss and if anything special is going on during the time we’ll be there Sept. 15th-20th (then we’re off to Paris). We loved Gordon’s wine bar and the White Hart last time.

I’m still knee deep in searching so sorry I’m kind of all over the place right now…oh and Pimm’s Cup! My favorite new drink! Are they available everywhere in London or just certain places? Thanks1
