First time in London for 5 days in August

yvonnez | Jul 18, 2010 05:28 PM

I will be in London for 5 days for the first time, from August 19-24. I was wondering if anyone could help me with lunch and dinner recommendations. I am staying in Kensington, but will be willing to travel around for good food.

I want to basically experience modern British dining, gastropubs and also maybe some more traditional fare. I am travelling across the rest of Europe following London, so would rather try other European cuisines when I'm in that particular country (Italy, France, etc.) unless the particular London restaurant is spectacular.

As for budget, I'm not sure how expensive food is exactly in London, but hopefully, around 20-30 pounds per person for dinner, and less for lunch? Not looking for Michelin stars, just delicious up-and-coming restaurants.

Thanks for all your help!
