Advice for Marble Arch area? [London]

lexdevil | May 25, 2012 07:54 AM

The Olympics has managed to throw off our usual summer London plans, so we're staying at a hotel in an area we've never really frequented (the Marriott Park Lane, which I feel very lucky to have booked on points). We're certain to return to some of our favorites and standbys from past visits, but could use advice on the area in the vicinity of our hotel. I'd appreciate tips on the following:

1)Places for an excellent, memorable, special dinner out. Caveats: no jacket required, comfortable with an 18-year-old who enjoys good food, but has an aversion for the precious. Pollen Street Social was a highlight for us last August.

2)Places for reliable, high quality, low stress dinners and lunches at fair prices. Asian suggestions especially welcome.

3)Places to grab a quick bite to go that are more interesting than Pret.

4)Specialties of the neighborhood. Are there any bakeries or other food focused shops in the area that it would be criminal for us to miss?
