Here is the post where I'm going to fill in the gaps for everywhere else that we ate during our last week in London.
Having eaten a lot of traditional breakfasts on the trip, we tried to keep the first meal of the day, simple. We found a great restaurant close to our hotel called Ponti's Italian Kitchen. They had wonderful oatmeal and strong lattes. A few days, we did a quick breakfast of parfaits and fruit at Pret A Manger. Pret A Manger is kind of like Starbucks, but better and with more food options. They need to open in Los Angeles.
When I visited the Victoria and Albert, it was really busy in the museum cafeteria. Too crowded to snag a table. About a block away from the museum, I found a cluster of restaurants. I don't normally like crepes, but I wanted a sit down restaurant to read and relax while eating lunch and the Cremerie Creperie fit the bill. I ordered a savory crepe with spinach and mushrooms. It was probably the best crepe that I've ever eaten.
Located in the same area as the Creperie, is Chopstix Noodle Bar. I'm generally suspicious of restaurants with cutesy misspellings in their names, but this was an easy and cheap option on the day that Dan and I visited the Natural History Museum. Chopstix Noodle Bar is a low rent Panda Express.
I think it may have been the abundance of wine consumption, but I didn't take a single picture of my solo dinner out at Spaghetti House. Spaghetti House doesn't sound very fancy, but this was one of my favorite meals of the entire trip. The restaurant is upscale/casual. I had an amazing pasta dish with braised beef that I washed down with several glasses of merlot. I finished by splashing out on a decadent creme brûlée. Dan was having dinner with his friends, so I treated myself. It's rare that I don't have to share my dessert and I cherished it!
Speaking of dessert...we loved the frozen yogurt chain called Snog. Delicious frozen yogurt and very colorful lights. We took our desserts and walked around London on a warm early autumn night.
Finally, the prettiest restaurant was the Serpentine Bar and Kitchen in Hyde Park. The food was a bit expensive and mediocre, but this restaurant is all about location, location, location. The views of the park and the Serpentine are stunning and it's definitely worth having a meal, or maybe just dessert here. The ambiance is hard to beat.
