Every entry has been assessed for quality, originality, pleasant surroundings, convivial ambience, consistency and above all amusing personalities.Eat London includes 60 recipes by some of Britain's top chefs including Francesco Mazzei of L'Anima, Giorgio Locatelli of Locanda Locatelli, Matthew Harris of Bibendum, Pierre Koffman of Koffman's, Bryn Williams of Odette's, Adam Byatt of Trinity as well as recipes from some of the capital's favourite restaurants such as Boundary, Brawn, Cecconi's, China Tang, Coq d'Argent, Galvin La Chapelle, Moro, Pizza East and Tinello amongst others. Every entry has complete listings and can be located on the fold-out maps. Special photography throughout illustrates the wonderful food and everyday streetlife of one of the tastiest places on earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foodie Heaven 16 April 2012
Format:Paperback
I love this book. It's going to be one of those books that I'll want to follow me everywhere. It's covers Peter Prescott and Terence Conrans choices of cafes, bars, restaurants, butchers, delis (basically anywhere interesting to get food) in (mostly Central) London. They say at the beginning that it's their subjective opinions and choices, but given their pedigree in the business, you trust their guidance.

The book is beautifully designed and guides you through each area of London reviewing the restaurants (and other food related places) in varying lengths. The beautiful photographs give you more than just images of the food, they also capture the atmosphere of the restaurant or a tiny detail that make you want to explore more.

But the thing that makes this book stand out for me is the recipes that pepper the book from some of the selected restaurants/ chefs, giving you a little take-home before you've even been. The question is where do i keep it? By my bedside to dip in and out, on the coffee table to use as reference, in my bag to read on the tube, in the kitchen with my other recipe books or most likely between all four.

Bought this as a present for foodie daughter-in-law who lives in London, she loves it. Wefound descriptions and ratings of restaurants tallied with our own and friends experiences. It's given us lots of places to aspire to. Interesting recipes included too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Show 8 Jan 2013
By I. Darren TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A simple proposition you might think? A listing of restaurants in London, England with many personal commentaries about some of the high and possibly low points of London cuisine.

Yet here the authors have achieved something rather special. Many books of this kind tend to be reactive. You know you are going to be visiting a particular area (or live there) and want to eat out. So you buy something that gives you facts, opinions or a bit of both. Job done, hopefully. Then you have to just trust the information as restaurants can come and go. Strangely, this book manages to act as a magnet. Encouraging you to visit London just to try some of these wonderful restaurants out and for this reviewer that would be a several hour plane ride. Yet already a number of restaurants are managing to get this reviewer to think about the next visit to London...

This book has been totally revised and updated since it first appeared in 2007. You are not just getting a 'boring' listing of restaurants by food type or locality. You are effectively getting a personal guide about culinary London by the authors. From the high-life of five-star restaurants to the more simpler café and food store there is something for everyone and more besides. The miniature portraits of the restaurants are an engaging read. As a great bonus and something that was not expected, there are 60 recipes from some of London's top chefs, many of which are signature dishes in their own right.

The quality of photography manages to draw you in just like a good travel book does. There is even a fold-out map although this reviewer is not sure he would want to take this book around on his travels.

May be Conran orientated but not too much. A good directory with useful directions and comments. Well presented.
East and South East London particularly good.
