I'm originally from the Seattle area and will be back for visit in May, and am excited to try some of the new restaurants that have opened since I moved to London over 5 years ago.
However, my very English husband is not what one would describe as an adventurous eater – he likes simple food that is well cooked, but his interest in food ends there. He is also quite picky about what he eats, and while I finally got him to try figs and foie gras earlier this year, I fear that the menus at some of new restaurants will send him running.
When we’ve been in town before, he liked both Lola and Purple, but I want something new. Are there any more places between the chains and the more adventurous experiences? So far I’ve come up with Barola, Maximilien, and perhaps the Dahlia Lounge – none of them particularly “new”.
I don’t think a place like Crush, Lark, or How to Cook a Wolf is going to be his sort of thing. We’ll be near the convention center, so places nearby would be a bonus.
