Places to Eat in London
Now where should one eat in London. I’ve included a bit of history in the following list. One can always easily find a trendy place to eat in London, but let’s focus a bit more on history. Rules Restaurant was established in 1798. Quo Vadis was opened in the 1920s and Criterion Restaurant became the place for politicians, royalty and heroes of literature to eat beginning in 1874.
Even if you take your children to one of these restaurants who may not like the food (which is doubtful), you can dazzle them with the history behind the following London restaurants:
