FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD
Everyone says that London is difficult to find good food and this Chairman of the Board challenges this. Let's stroll down restaurant row of my favorites restaurants in London.
LA GAVROCHE is one of London's most famous and most expensive restaurants. It is classic in every sense. The dress is formal, jacket and tie for men. Restaurant is located at 43 Upper Brook Street. This restaurant prides itself on knowing what the customers want before they themselves know what they want. The setting is comfortable. The restaurant prides itself for grouping elements of a food dish coupled with premeal tidbits such as canapés, breads and petit fours plus the all-French cheese board. Dishes such as gratin of crab with penne and Parmesan, or a supreme of chicken teamed with a crepe-flavored risotto. The lengthy wine list remains rooted in France and is not inexpensive. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner. This is classified as a very expensive restaurant but it is worth that one big over the budget night out.
LA TANTE CLAIRE
Another top French cuisine restaurant in London. This is an old Gallic favorite. Try the duck, venison or terrines of all sorts. London's elite give in to Tante Claire's seduction. Contemporary paintings, light paneling and warm curtains create a friendly,cheerful atmosphere at this restaurant at the Berkerly Hotel. The owner is Pierre Koffman and he displays all his immense talent in this superb restaurant. Formal dress required for dinner, jacket and tie for the gentlemen. Reminiscent of Chef Koffmann's Gascon childhood, savoureux ragout d'escargots de vignes au Madiran or salade de lapereau roti, haricots tarbais and os a moelle... French cheeses and divine desserts with remarkable Bordeaux wines.
THE WATERSIDE INN
Take a twenty-five mile trip to Windsor. This is fifty-minutes on the train from London's Waterloo Station. The main sight here is Windsor Castle. Windsor Castle has been the home of British royalty for 900 years. It started as a wooden fortress, built in 1066 by William the Conqueror. After you have visited the castle go to Lunch or Dinner at THE WATERSIDE INN set in the quiet 15th Century village of Bray on the banks of the River Thames. The restaurant has been lauded by critics around the world, resulting in three Michelin stars. The cooking is light and imaginative with its origins firmly in the classics. Seafood and desserts feature well on the menu. This is a gorgeous and expensive restaurant.
