A Guide to London’s Iconic Restaurants and Eateries
Cara Frost-Sharratt

published 2011 • 6 ¾” x 8 ¼” • 144 pages • full-color, maps
ISBN 9781566568517 • paperback • $17.95

"Freelance writer Frost-Sharratt presents an enjoyable short book on classic London eating establishments. The complementary lively writing and numerous color photographs entice readers to consider a trip to London if only to enjoy one of these restaurants. They range in tastes from the luxurious Ritz to the working-class M. Manze. Restaurants are also listed by food type, with categories such as ‘British,' ‘Romance,' and ‘Food in a Hurry.' Entries are organized by neighborhood and include detailed maps at the beginning of each section. Other books covering restaurants tend to focus on the new, award-winning, or best. This guide keeps it simple with 40 classic and iconic eateries. Location and tube information are provided."

A unique guide to the city’s finest restaurants and great gift for foodies everywhere

London’s diverse restaurant scene is constantly changing as establishments come and go, but some restaurants stand the test of time and continue to attract diners year after year, and often decade after decade. This book includes a selection of these well-established restaurants, covering their history, interesting facts and the reasons why they have survived while so many others have closed their doors.

From the grand delights of Claridge’s and The Wolseley to the more humble Beigel Bake and Bar Italia, all of London’s best-loved food establishments are included. Whether it’s a romantic meal with fine wine or a quick bite in historical surroundings that takes your fancy, you’ll find the perfect restaurant, café or patisserie listed here. From modern European cuisine and fine Asian fare to traditional fish and chips or pie and mash, there’s an eatery here to suit all tastes, occasions and budgets.

Divided by area and accompanied by color photography showcasing both interiors and exteriors, the restaurants described will appeal to visitors and residents alike. Each entry includes an overview of the cuisine on offer, together with historical snapshots and details on the character of each restaurant.

Cara Frost-Sharratt is a freelance writer who lives and works in London. She is a regular contributor to a variety of food and travel magazines and the author of several books including 101 Clever Card Tricks.
