Restaurant Rec near Green Park Tube - London

Recommended Posts

Hello,

meeting up with some folks in London. One of whom works very close to the Green Park Tube stop.

Would like to dine in this area (Mayfair, I believe?) but don't have a clue where.

Only requirements are it must be casual (slacks, shirt, nothing more dressy than that) and no Italian.

Would prefer ethnic or something w/local flavor.

Thanks in advance.

Willie

Fakhreldine

Lebanese. Used to be dire, but has improved a lot and is now garnering some very positive reviews. Some tables with pleasant views over Green Park. Great local flavour...

La Rascasse at Cafe Grand Prix on Berkeley Street - revolting interior but very good food according to some recent reports.

Berkeley Square Cafe is supposed to be fun, but haven't been.

Restaurant 1837 at the Browns Hotel, Albermale St - reviewed by Ramsey in the Standard yesterday.

Chor Bizarre - Albermale Street - if you thought Cafe Grand Prix was bad, the interior here is even more naff, but it is Ismail Merchant's favourite curry house apparently.

Then if you are prepared to walk a little further, you will hit Conduit Street (via Cecconi's - not of interest to you because its italian) - Sketch, Deca, Noble Rot ... Mayfair has its fair share of good places.

Is Tamarind still round there (20 Queen St)? Would satisfy your ethnic request - Posh Indian (1 Michelin star). Might be a bit dressy though. I went a few years ago and thought it good but overrated.

There's a cheap noodle place in an old bank near the Ritz - great location average food. Also a more expensive place in the same building I believe.

langans brasserie, still buzzy, good service, food can be a bit hit and miss but a good place for an informal night out. You'd struggle not to enjoy yourselves there.

probably what qualifies as 'local colour' for the area


you don't win friends with salad
