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.
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.Read more ›
East and South East London particularly good.

Bought as a gift to help a friend get established in London. It has useful details in it but I think it would have to be seen as an additional book as I think a broader look... Read morePublished on 27 Dec. 2012 by bruno
