Quick question about Kids/Teens and Terroirs, London

Most pubs will allow kids in if accompanied by parents unlike more night time spots that are bar/clubs or cocktail places. A website check will verify. A 16 or 17 year old is also allowed to consume beer, wine or cider in a pub or restaurant with a meal.

London/Edinburgh/Dublin report

Ah yes, I bet know all the tell tale signs then :) Interesting. Glad you still enjoyed it, I thought it was excellent food.

London/Edinburgh/Dublin report

Funny, but I actually didn't find that at all about Ondine. I've eaten there and separately stayed in the hotel and find them so different to each other that they really do feel like different places.

London - place to eat

It may be way too late to reserve, but this is a fancy way to eat in Cambridge: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddri...

Great, simple French bistro, brasserie

Pierre Victoire in Soho is simple but classic and tasty.

BYOB restaurants or those that charge reasonable corkage?

Hawksmoor do a "monday wine club" where corkage is only £5.
I think Tayyabs is BYO.

Wonderful "not fancy" asian places in London ?

Lol, good point! Last time we tried to order food in Mandarin in China-town for a lark, the waiter didn't speak it either.
There is some brilliantly authentic food in Chinatown now - northern chinese, proper Hong Kong fodder as well as the Cantonese staples.

One more dinner in London

The Fat Duck (yes, I know it is not London) was actually "mindblowing" in my opinion. It was like theatre.

Chocolates, Candies, and Confections. Where to go in London

The best ones buy whole, I prefer the red flesh (inside) variety. If they are refridgerated already cut in supermarkets they taste of very little.
They ase an Asia thing for me, but I'm pretty sure I see them in UK supermarkets every now and again or Chinatown is bound to have them.

Figs rival apples for the best fruit. Maybe also dragonfruit..

Thinking of going to Bibendum for oysters or somewhere else?

It's quite the event if you go as a group and book ahead.
Considerably cheaper than trying to do the same in London also.
I seem to remember there is a good beer shop nearby contaning strange dark ale treasures.

Take a day trip to the lovely Whistable, drink good local beers and have a seafood feast at Wheelers!

a little bit old but still hip

I was thinking more to have a look at the various options and see if any aligned - polpo itself is only one after all.

What about one of the Polpo group? You can google but they are all mentioned here:

If it is London, I could probably give you a "hip" place for every different type of food - in fact the more niche the easier! So if you have a preferred cusine that is also good to know.

Apples from the Brogdale Trust

Apples from the Brogdale Trust

Also branches of Waitrose tend to put a good emphasis on ensuring there are a good range of varities of English apples as we go through the season. They make a feature on different ones at different times.

London’s Nobu loses Michelin star status

It's a text change so should take moments to do, hopefully not too arduous. I agree it is a bad time for the group.

Still on their website however "Nobu London opened in London on February 17th 1997 and was awarded one Michelin star, which it still retains today." on the homepage!

Kerridge To Open New Gastropub

Although surely Marlow is less likely to experience the level of queues that we have seen for the best and most trendy London offerings of new. Fewer tourists also.
I discovered that tube-strike day was the way to win at this. Walk right in :)

Is there a shop like G Detou in London?

for most of the more specialist products that they sell one would need to search online for in the UK.

I can also now report that their own grown squash is lovely.

Fortnum and Mason has some lovely cabinets of wonder. Marzipan fruits are amazingly pretty there.

I've just been reading about it, sounds fascinating. I think for most of that one would have to search online these days.

Looks like a cross between Lakeland and Selfridges food hall.
