British Dining

We managed some wonderful dining while in London & Chester

I'll try to post some link's and impressions

First night (Thursday) was Hereford Road for some "English Fare"
Home | Hereford Road
"We will be bringing whole-hearted, robust, simple British cooking to our new restaurant using the great wealth of our national produce."

Nice, but had to field call about 5th3rd bank, maybe more on that later...

Then we caught a train to Chester
Ian had arranged dinner at The Arkle Restaurant: with a Michelin star for 18 years !

Saturday with Ian's family, late dinner (for us ... about 9PM) at Piccolino �Restaurant in Chester:
"Stylish, modern Italian restaurant voted by many as 'The' Italian restaurant in Chester and the place to be seen in. Stand alone bar, fab food and an incredible atmosphere."

Well, it wasn't Glen Arbor on a Saturday night!
Loud, and looked to me like all the young women were there, wondered if the guys were at the sports bar... but seems that there were several birthday parties going on.

Good food, good time

Sunday back to London for simple Italian, local place nearby:
De Amicis Restaurant

"Situated in the heart of London’s Notting Hill area and a stones throw from Kensington Gardens we have been serving fine and authentic Italian food using fresh andDe Amicis seasonal ingredients for nearly 15 years."

Good food, again, good time...

But Ian saved the best for last:
A visit to Milk & Honey - London
Then dinner at: Indigo

Delicious dinner, topped with (sorry, can't recall exact age, I think it was about 30 yr) Port

In between we tried GBK Gourmet Burger Kitchen
I'll have to pass some ideas along to Tim at Art's
The satay burger was very nice
