London Recommendations for a Brooklynite?

sam1 | Feb 27, 2007 06:17 PM

My dad strong-armed me to spend a few days in London with him. I haven't been to London in 2 years and I love the city but now I'm forced to come up with a list of restaurants for us.

We're both serious food heads here in NYC. Besides the borough market and the rare favorite pub, I am pretty clueless about restaurants in London.

The criteria is mainly that the restaurant has to be friendly to a 60 year old man and his 26 year old son. I can't go to some popular hip place with my dad unless the food is the focus.

For those familiar with NYC, my favorite spots these days are Momofuku, Bouley, 'ino, Spotted Pig, Freemans, Keens Steakhouse, Katz's Deli, Il Buco, Landmarc, Sushi Yasuda...mainly great food with nothing extravagant.

I'd like to specifically go to a great gastro pub. Any recommendations for a good scotch bar?

Thanks in advance.
