No such doubt exists with Savoir Fare London Stylish Dining for Under $25 by Elaine Louie. This book is a valuable resource in finding dining choices in London. Louie is authentic in the descriptions of the types of food, atmosphere and value. Chapters list restaurants by locations and runs the gamut of different cuisines. Photos for many of the restaurant's interiors and food add further information.
Click on these links for previous posts with reviews of the some of the book's recommended restaurants during my London visit: Bea's of Bloomsbury, Konditor & Cook, Maison Bertaux.
Louie's vivid and savory descriptions left me wanting to visit more restaurants than I had time for. I have to admit that some restaurants I visited, such as Laduree at Harrods, had to be bypassed due to the long wait. Pick up a copy of this book if you want to make your London dining experience tasty and reasonable. I will likely have this book in tow upon a return visit to sample some of the other recommended restaurants. Click here to purchase this book from amazon.com.
