English food is much more varied than fish ‘n’ chips (though we can tell you where to get the best London has to offer). Indeed, England’s capital city is home to a dizzying array of culinary options and of course Angelika Taschen has selected the finest London eateries where you’ll delight in a meal, tea, or simply hobnobbing with the jet-set. Highlights of this book include descriptions of: The Golden Hind with its art deco interior and delectable fish ‘n’ chips – a fixture on Marylebone Lane since 1914; The Wolseley, classic grand cafe and perfect place for afternoon tea and scones; the same classic British cooking as Charles Dickens once did at the city’s oldest restaurant, Rules; London’s first gastropub, The Eagle; La Fromagerie, a cheese Mecca and delicatessen with fresh groceries; celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Fifteen. Special features of this book include: exclusive hand-illustrated cover; exclusive hand-illustrated map for each area; information such as opening hours, history, and signature dishes; hand-illustrated tear-out postcard; and, softcover with a sturdy PVC jacket.
