I am heading to London from New York on business and plan on arriving early to do some things on my own. I will be staying in either the Kensington area or Convent Gardens (haven't quite decided). I will be there on a Saturday and Sunday evening and looking for some nice places that are good for solo dining for a female in their 20s.
I am hoping not to go too far from the areas I mentioned. I would be looking for maybe one high-end place (how is Atelier de Joel Robouchon?) and maybe another spot with a nice bar that is more casual but not too loud and crazy. I am not particularly looking for Indian food for either night, but other ethnic cuisines could be of interest. I love Italian food but I do get enough of that in New York. Price is not important.
If you also have some nice lunch suggestions, please let me know. I noticed a nice Sunday lunch menu at L'Autre Pied. How is that?
FYI I am an active CHer on the NY Boards so I will happily return the favor of recommendations for anyone traveling to my city!
