Seeking Feedback on June London Dining Itinerary

teresaalee | Jun 15, 2013 06:34 PM


I plan to be in London (5 nights near Covent Garden; 2 nights near South Kensington) for 8 days later this month and have done research on some places to eat. For breakfast and lunch each day I will be dining solo so I'd like those to be "an experience"; evening dinners will be with my husband and we're up for trying all different types of places. Ideally, I'd like the itinerary to include a range of prices but right now I am heavy on the high end. I'd love suggestions for places with good value on the less-expensive-side to balance the list a bit. I'd also love feedback on the list overall (Are the spots I picked worth trying? Any suggestions for the "TBD" slots?).

Here's what I have so far:

Sunday -- arrive 10pm; we'll be hungry after the flight. Any late night spots to hit up near Covent Garden?

Monday -- breakfast or lunch or tea: TBD
dinner: Bubbledogs

Tuesday -- afternoon tea: Brown's
dinner: St John

Wednesday -- lunch: pre-fixe at Helene Darroze
dinner: TBD

Thursday -- breakfast: Wolseley
lunch: figure I'll skip since bfast will be relatively filling
dinner: TBD

Friday -- breakfast or lunch: TBD
dinner: Rules (I also have reservations at HIX, thinking of canceling those in favor of Rules)

Saturday -- breakfast or lunch: TBD
dinner: Ledbury

Sunday -- lunch: Dinner
(not planning on dinner that night, maybe just a snack somewhere)

Monday -- breakfast: TBD

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions! I am always nervous when writing a post.
