That's a really helpful thread and I have it saved now. Thank you.

Thank you for the idea. Church is a night time thing but maybe we could go before onto the Heath.

You're absolutely right. I'm the traveler in the family and ordinarily would say I'd travel all over the city for a good meal. But I have a hip issue and on the one hand want to give my husband a memorable first experience of the UK and on the other am anxious just how mobile I will be. When I say local I mean all of the above. I don't mean french or italian or spanish. I love the immigrant community food and I think he would like pub, trad Eng. We will come again (with both kids there) so I'm not looking for a once in a lifetime recommendation. I have looked on the board for places but they seem to be in other areas of town.

My Greek husband - first visit - and I will be staying around Liverpool St station near daughter's dorm.
We want to find a Greek Orthodox Church for Sat nt service (Greek Easter a week later than Catholic) and good pubs and restaurants for 'local' cusine. Four days in London, three in Bristol (son's uni).
