I’ll be wading through reccomendations for a while. But I should say in response to the handful of folks who insist that it’s an oxymoron to talk about good food in London. I think you’re wrong. You’d be on firmer footing to say British food is bad, though I like a lot of it. But in my experience London has a lot of good restaurants because it’s become such an international city. Certainly their Indian food is outsanding (and the answer to the question, who has two thumbs and loves Indian food is: this guy!). It may not be Paris or New York, but there’s plenty of room for good eatin’ short of those standards. It’s certainly got better food than DC.
