  1. I love this idea! Loads of these places are on my 'list' too (and I've just added quite a few which weren't :))
    A few suggested additions: Ottolenghi! (may already be on there?); Moro (the 'restaurant' version of Morito - SO good) ; Burger&Lobster (I haven't eaten there yet, but it's top of my list!)
    Also I'd suggest Bodegra Negra rather than Boho Mexica - no-one I know who's eaten there has anything good to say about the food (it's great for drinks though); and for Vietnamese food - Song Que on Kingsland Rd is amazing too!

  2. Hi Maya! Thanks for commenting! You're right - Ottolenghi should probably go on my list. Similarly I probably would put Moro on there, but as you might notice, I tend to get to the more expensive restaurants less frequently, so thought I'd have Morito instead as it's a bit more achievable. Funnily enough, even though Burger & Lobster isn't on my list, I'm going on Wednesday. I'm not a big burger fan (or that fussed about lobster!) so the legendary queues put me off even putting it on my List. They now take bookings in their Soho place for 6 or more people though, so we're off!

    I haven't heard any reviews either way about Boho Mexica - I just walked past it one day and thought it looked nice, whereas I've heard a few neutral to negative things about La Bodega. I'm sure I'll pop it on the list at some point just to see for myself though - I went to La Esquina in NY which is owned by the same people and loved it!


Please feel free to add your views, or maybe suggest somewhere I should put on my list!
