Where to eat in London:
The River Cafe - opened in 1987, Italian food
The Ivy - Popular spot for its posh interiors and celeb clientele. I prefer this location
Sketch - the Gallery is what pink dreams are made of
The Wolseley - Breakfast scene is hoppin’
Bob Bob Ricard - serves the most champagne in the U.K., and rightfully so since every table is equipped with a ‘Press for Champagne’ button. Lunch menu prices are 20% cheaper than the dinner menu. The menu offers Beef Wellington for two which makes it a great date spot.
Yashin Sushi -beautiful fish you can enjoy without or without soy sauce.
Duck & Waffle
Ping Pong Soho
These places offer incredible interiors to enjoy a drink:
The Connaught Bar
Mr. Fogg’s Gin Parlour
American Bar inside The Savoy hotel
The Churchill Arms
Not-so-touristy things to do in London
The Wellcome Collection - not your typical museum.
The Chelsea Physic Garden - one of the oldest botanical gardens in Europe
Persephone Books - a bookstore dedicated to forgotten female authors. I’ve yet to read a bad book from here.
Check out the Cross Bones Graveyard after visiting The Shard.
