Where I Ate in London

I had the best time in London. As I’ve mentioned, I went to visit my brother who has lived there for over 15 years. It’s always special to spend time with him but this time was even more special because I went for a full week (normally my trips are so rushed)! While he worked every day I would wander the streets, visit the shops and take in all of the sights and incredible Christmas lights. We had some really delicious meals so I thought I would share. It’s always fun to see where the locals go rather than just the tourist hotspots.

Bella Vita- Homey and hearty Italian in a cute setting. This was my first meal in London and couldn’t be more perfect. The restaurant was packed but we got a nice table in the corner, enjoyed an amazing bottle of red and ate some classic Italien dishes with a modern twist.

Shoreditch House- Part of Soho House, Shoreditch House has a similar menu to all the others. Scene is always bustling and the menu is great for sharing.

The Ned- It’s a member’s club but you don’t need to be a member to dine there.  It's located in an exquisite old bank. When you walk in you feel like you're walking into a scene from Great Gatsby.  There are nine restaurants in the space all serving different kinds of food. We had a late reservation but were starving so we decided to have appetizers at Zobler’s (an upscale deli- champagne and latkas) and then we had dinner at Millie’s (cutest pink sofas!). I would go there every week if I lived in London. Make sure to reserve since it’s always packed.

Shackfuyu- Asian fusion, tapas style. Need I say more?

Duke of Cambridge- We went here for lunch one day and I loved my meal. The food is all organic and there are tons of healthy options (which, in comparison to LA, isn’t that easy to find).

Sketch- A few of you had messaged me on Instagram suggesting Sketch. I went for drinks and the atmosphere is amazing! But be ready to spend a lot on drinks (like 50 pounds for 2 martinis…yikes!) It's definitely a tourist hot spot but worth it to see! 

The Ivy- I had a work brunch here and loved the menu. I have to say I'm not a huge fan of traditional english breakfasts (particularly since I don't eat a lot of carbs and I don't eat meat). The Ivy had tons of healthy options, like eggs and avocado toast.
