the photos above are from fernandez & wells, one of my favorite places to get a bite to eat here in london. the food + wine bar on lexington street is the perfect place to spend some time on a saturday, sitting at the bar, ordering some snacks and having a glass of wine from their small list. above, i ordered the raclette – hearty and delicious, it’s one of my favorite cold-weather dishes.
i often get a lot of questions about places to eat & drink in london. it can be very difficult to reply to all of these emails, but i thought i might provide my (very) short list below of my favorite spots here. for a much more comprehensive list of excellent recommendations, check out my friend tommy’s lomo guide to london.
brian’s short list:
st. john – my favorite restaurant in london
leila’s shop – for coffee and breakfast/lunch
rochelle school canteen – lunch from 12-2, open monday through friday only
the southampton arms (kentish town) – my favorite pub in london
fernandez & wells
la fromagerie (marylebone) – breakfast or lunch
trullo – i love the space and dinner at this new spot in highbury/islington
towpath café – a great spot from lori de mori and jason lowe, one of my favorite photographers
violet – the shop is wonderful on a saturday
in one of the photos above, you can see a little peek of something that i’ll post more about later on today. i’m going to be talking about inspiration. see you later.
