Seeking Feedback on London Chow Suggestions

jillyju | | Mar 29, 2005 12:17 AM

My mom, two sisters, and I will be spending five nights in London in mid-April. We'll be staying in Bloomsbury at Scala House (an apartment). Our interest is mostly in the inexpensive to moderate end of the price scale, though one splurge is possible.

I've been spending way more time on searching old Chowhound posts than I care to admit, and am eager for feedback on the list I've assembled. I'm a Bay Area, California chowhounder and know how right on the folks on this board can be.

The list has no real order other than the fact that if it's higher on the list, it's more likely I'm feeling enthusiastic about it . If you think something should be removed or added, I'm eager to hear your thoughts. Some of the posts I gleaned from were more than two years old, so it's entirely possible/likely that certain restaurants have changed. Of course we're never going to make it to all of these, nor will my siblings be likely to agree to all my preferences, but this will be a great list to use for negotiation purposes. Thank you so much in advance!
