i will be visiting my brother in the clerkenwell area of london (near the king's cross / farringdon stops on the metropolitan line) this weekend.
i am looking for recommendations for notable, local places to eat, pubs to drink / hang out, and any other food adventures. i also wouldn't mind venturing farther afield for anything special.
for the most part, we are on student budgets, but one moderately priced splurge meal would be nice.
thanks in advance!!
