Some travelers need to eat cheap but for others, dedicated to splurge at dinner, Louie’s finds will seem perfect for lunch or a snack." --Gael Greene

The two best were:
Baker & Spice at 54-56 Elizabeth St, Belgravia SW1W 9PB. A short and beautiful stroll east of the Sloane Square station. Delightfully fresh ingredients in unusual combinations.
One not included that should be is Geales at 2 Farmer Street, Notting Hill Gate W8. Down a small alley just across from the Notting Hill Gate station. Great seafood in a quiet, sophistocated atmosphere. Unhurried service. We were there for about 3 hours for a late lunch.
Also check our the seafood bar in Harrods food court.
