Feedback and Suggestions for Foodie Itinerary London April

Kalenden | Feb 20, 201906:45 AM     6

Hi,
My companion and I are looking for feedback and suggestions for a restaurant itinerary in London April.
We are major foodies and enjoy active city trips with a big gastronomic part.
Commonly, we actively walk around the city the whole day and go for a nice (fine-)dining experience in the evening.
We try to find local spots and places that are harder to find back home (Belgium) or that are world-known to be superb or top the lists. We prefer 1.5-2hour+ meals that allow us to discover the restaurants style. For instance, we often go for tasting menus with beverage pairing.

In that sense, we had decided upon the following itinerary:
Monday Evening -> Ikoyi (Fusion West-African)
Tuesday Evening -> A. Wong (Contemporary Chinese)
Wednesday Evening -> Kutir (New Indian hotspot)
Thursday Evening -> Core by Clare Smyth (Fine dining British)
Friday Lunch -> No reservations. Either Polpetto or Barafina perhaps?

The idea of the above list, on which I’m looking for feedback, is to have a gastronomic journey through 3 special cuisines and end the evening dinners on a more ‘pure’ note of accessible cooking since 4 times ethnic cooking in a row could be excessive.
Concerns with this list is if our palate, taste buds, gastronomic capacity, and especially alcohol tolerance, would not be exceeded with going out like this for 4 evenings in a row.
What do you think? Is the doability of this list in excess? Are there better alternatives? Would you approach it differently? Open to any and all feedback!

In addition and unfortunately, we are already too late to make reservations for Core. Anything you would suggest as a replacement?
