Spring – London, UK

What a beautiful restaurant!  Spring is located in the New Wing of the Somerset House.  I’m not going to lie…it was a little hard for us to find when we got out of our Uber.  When you go, enter on the street that continues over Waterloo Bridge.

The interior alone is so soft and comforting.  It’s “pretty”.  The food was equally as impressive and beautiful.  I’ve also heard from a friend that lives there that the bar is a great place to meet friends for drinks.  I would definitely go back!

Gymkhana – London, UK

A must if you love Indian food and are in London.  Beware that a lot of the dishes are spicy.  I like spice and the prawns in particular were burn your ears spicy!  Unless you are an Indian food pro and know what each ingredient is, ask your server for some guidance with the menu and they’ll make sure you get a well rounded meal.  And don’t forget the cocktails.  Wowzer they were good (Gooseberry Nimbu Pani)!  I especially love how on the menu there’s a little notation under each drink telling you what time of day they’d each be appropriate for.  Did I mention they have a Michelin star?!

Granger & Co. – London, UK

Best recommendation ever!!!  My girlfriends and I were spending the day shopping in Notting Hill and casually asked one of the shop girls where she would recommend we eat lunch.  Without blinking an eye she said, “Granger & Co. and no matter what you do order the ricotta hotcakes to share!”.  We did just that and more.  Holy s#!t those should be illegal!  I don’t care for bananas so we had them on the side but honestly everything about this was perfect.  It’s one of those dishes where you feel slightly turned on with each bite.  Wow.  And then the shrimp burger with jalapeño mayo, shaved radish salad and sesame gochujang.  It reminded me of my beloved shrimp buns at Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York.
