Two new places have recently opened in London and will thrive.
The more obvious is in Notting Hill and it is run by Australian tv chef Bill Granger who was there when i went last month. No bookings ; you take your chance.The food is simple, interesting and reasonably priced. Relaxed and happy.
Those who work in the legal quarter of London should try 61 Above the Sun, a restaurant located above the Sun pub just off Ludgate Hill , a moment from St Pauls.It is stupendously good in an area devoid of decent food. There are 6 starters , 6 mains and 5 desserts plus specials. The under blade steak fillet with thrice cooked chunky chips was the best i have had in 2011. Phil, his partner and Jo run it . Small but perfect. The wine list beggars belief with stunning white burgundy , champagne and reds from Spain and Sicily that are utterly underpriced. It is so new that a landline is awaited ; you can book on  07810 437 997.
