Eating well while looking down on Londontown
Sep 10, 2014 10:00 am

For all its pomp and majesty, London is a city only recently besieged by a surge in the appearance of modern, towering architecture. Compared to its American metropolitan counterparts, viewing gallery-level restaurants — ripe with impress-your-date potential — are far fewer in number. Yet, structures such as the recently-opened Shard now deliver stunning vantage points and four-plus star restaurants from which to take in the city’s grey-tinged grandeur. Here are three to know about.

London's food scene's eastern migration continues
Aug 21, 2014 10:00 am

The relentless “Shoreditchification” of East London — whereby the alchemical mingling of start-up geeks, loft-dwelling artists, and bankers has, in parallel, produced an abundance of artisan coffee shops and an Ace Hotel in recent years — continues apace. As this bourgeois caste steadily creeps toward the city’s fringes, so, too, does the expanse of farm-to-table restaurants and mustaschioed bartenders serving up Van Winkle­–infused cocktails. Here are some of the best recently opened places to try.

Jerusalem-born chef Yotam Ottolenghi's eponymous food shops in London are always packed, and his cookbooks are bestsellers.
