I'm going to London the first time ever the week after next. I'm getting totally overwhelmed by restaurants and places to eat. Day time will be filled with typical sight seeing. Not sure how muchI can plan lunches. Will probably mostly "wing it" and figure out something based on where we happened to be when we get hungry. Don't really want to go far out of the way to get food.
Really, for now, mostly looking for dinner spots. We'll be staying in in Mayfair (JW Marriott Grosvenor House to be exact). So, places in and around that area that are a convenient walk are ideal. Mostly, looking for more casual spots. Mayfair seems to be packed to the gills with the high end fancy places. I like those places, but just can't eat at them every night.
Also, one night we are going to see a show (Book of Mormon). We'll probably be hungry after the show. So, something fairly convenient to the Prince of Wales theater would be good.
Don't want American chains. Though I would be OK with some small local London/UK chains. A good "curry house" or Indian place would be nice some time.
Oh. And what about a place for Sunday Roast? That doesn't have to be a casual place. Might make for a nice last final day in London before flying back home the next morning.
