First Visit to London Food Recommends

I strongly agree with the Swedish (mini) bakery-Bageriet, 24 Rose St near Leicester sq/Covet Garden. You will really feel you are in a quality, authentic Swedish shop. Quiet side street and wonderful staff. Many Swedish clients, so that says it all! Enjoy

Memorable last lunch/dinner in London- Quality Dover Sole

Thanks to all for past suggestions. I have a last request for this trip, as indicated in title/subject.
I have had solid sole @ The Ivy years ago, but they are closed for renovations, and actually had a superior dish in Alderly Edge a while back.
Looking forward to following on any missed suggestions on next trip.
(Come to Montreal/colonies on a vacation...your strong £ will make it a very quality/reasonable trip.....and great eats!)

North Finchley....any hope?

Thanks....just had very reasonable, generous and good value lunch at Two brothers. Worth a re-visit.
We did take out from the nearby Vietnamese, but found it relatively expensive.

Top BYOB or Table d'Hote at the moment

Agreed that just because one can bring wine, the restaurant with average (pricy) or below meals is skipable....there are better options in Montreal

Don Mills......any hope?

Bonjour, and thanks to you and Juno. Via Cibo was perfect, especially after silly-trendy Fabbrica. Great people, attitude, presentation, quality and value. Especially liked heirloom tomatoe soup, salads, pasta, sandwich (generous) and staff receptiveness to allergy issues. We not only had dine-in, but went back later for take out when new group arrived from airport.....and another take-out for arrivals next day. Lest this seem too positive, for credibility, I can suggest margharita pizza could have been a little more baked, but tastes were non-generic and authentic. Great place to be supported.

Don Mills......any hope?

Hi,....made it to Don Mills....tried Fabbrica @ DM plaza....generally disappointing with overpriced pasta, wine and spotty service....very nice decor, but will not return
