We will be in London for a week in late May with our 9 year old. We are staying in an apartment on Eccleston Square, not far from Victoria Station, so I guess this is roughly Belgravia or Pimlico.
Experience has taught us that between jet lag (we're coming from New York), trying not to eat dinner too early and trying not to get our son to bed too late, we do better if we stick to nearby restaurants for most dinners. So it's a big, big city with lots of wonderful places to eat, most of which aren't even on the radar for this trip. Ah, the sacrifices we make for children! Anyway. . .
The following places seem to be well thought of here and generally on the web and the menus look good to us. Are they a mistake for any reason (food really isn't good? Not child appropriate?). Are we missing anything terrific in the neighborhood that we should add to the list? Is there anything that requires a reservation made further in advance than morning of?
Of course, we'll probably also do a couple of dinners in with food bought in markets or food halls.
Our tastes in breakfast run more towards coffee and a pastry than a full on English breakfast and Tomtom Cafe looks good. Any thoughts?
