  • Restaurants in That London – wife's birthday …

    I will be in That London next weekend. It’s my wife’s birthday so I’d like to take her to a nice restaurant, hoping to escape for 100 quid or so. Fish place might be good. We’ll be staying near Gloucester Road, but I suppose we can get around by that underground thingy they have down there. Any recommendations would be gratefully received!!

    I remember seeing a thread about taking the wife up the Oxo tower, might be worth a look into that

    Medlar isn’t far from there, has a Michelin star, yet not that expensive (£100 should be doable with a bottle of wine). Not been yet but planning to.

    J Sheekey is meant to be excellent for fish & seafood but is a bit of a trek (it’s by Leicester Sq tube).

    Else just get on toptable or london-eating and see what’s well reviewed.

    If you fancy lunch also would recommend meat liquor. Is just burger but what a burger. Cool place to.

    I normally suggest the Wolseley for somewhere with a bit of sense of occasion, and decent food, and is really rather nice inside to boot.
    Three courses and wine is doable for £100 or so.

    I can highly recommend Quo Vadis on Dean St in Soho or St John’s in Smithfield.. Or Polpo.

    I went to Bill Wyman’s Sticky Fingers in Kensington when we were down in the summer, it was superb.

    (there is simply no way of saying this without *somebody* sniggering so I’m not going to try…)

    I’ve been to the Oxo Tower restaurant and it was really very good – wonderful food and the environment was fantastic. Do it.

    J.Sheekey – I dont eat fish but I’m told it’s pretty much the best fish place.

    It’s gotta be The lvy

    It’s really down to earth, good food, excellent service,
    And half a chance of spotting a z list celeb 🙂

    The Mrs will love it.

    Will struggle to get a table but defo worth a try if you can be flexible on time

    Tamarind in Mayfair for michelin star curry. Downside is you’ll never enjoy a normal curry in the same way again.

    If it’s fish you’re after it has to be J Sheekey.

    Pizza restaurants for your wife’s birthday is a good idea.

    Brilliant idea! Why not save some more cash and just get a domino’s or pizza-hut 😯
