Visiting London April 28-May 5 from NYC. I've not been since 2010, and it will be my partner's first time ever. We're staying on High Holborn.
Right now, we have dinner reservations at River Cafe, Gymkhana, St. John, Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings, and Chiltern Firehouse. I still have two more open dinners without plans. St. John and River Cafe both have sentimental significance for us, but the others I'm quite flexible on. Is B&H Buildings good? It's been hard to find too much on. Was also considering Berners Tavern, Soif, Quo Vadis, and Bob Bob Ricard.
For lunch, I've only gotten as far as 10 Greek Street for a light lunch our first day in, and Sweetings. For breakfast, I want to visit E. Pellicci before visiting Broadway Market and heading up to White Hart Lane for an afternoon Tottenham match. Any more suggestions for good lunches or can't-miss breakfasts? We aren't huge breakfast eaters, but do like third-wave coffee and good pastries.
We also like cocktails and have made a reservation at Callooh Callay, and will probably visit Dukes Bar and The American Bar at the Savoy.
This is sort of mind-dump, but hopefully gives you an idea of what we like. Would love to hear any thoughts on our itinerary and if anyone thinks there are any gaping holes.
Thanks in advance!
