Check out Dukes Hotel: Duke's high tea

If you don't know Dukes, you owe it to yourself to visit, ideally on one of the London Walks London Walks that stops there, which as I recall are both Old Mayfair and The Old Palace Quarter. They are both easily 2 of my very favourite London Walks because almost every step is something interesting and classic.

Besides the High Tea and classic location, the bar makes what is considered to be the best martini in London, including some original concoctions. And Ian Fleming usually stayed at Dukes when in London and they are very much into the whole James Bond thing there.

And if you appreciate my advice, remember that when I offer you trade this Fall! bart

Your RB 2 for my WR3 at the worst...... shark

But seriously, do some London Walks. I've done over 30 and enjoyed all but one or two. Owned by a husband and wife who lead some walks, he is an American named David. If you want other specific recs, send me an email!
Will definitely check out London Walks. We're going from Dec 24-Jan 2. A few of those days will be taken with Christmas and most places being closed.

BTW the cocktails at Duke's is about $25 - wowzahs!

Yeah, nothing in Mayfair is cheap, especially not in places like Dukes - imagine what it costs in Canadian dollars! But the London Walks are very cheap and great QPR!
Just hit up a BBQ place in S. Seattle that supposedly has quite a following, Peco's Pit. It was good, but not earth-shattering. I ordered the Friday-only smoked turkey breast sandwich with sides of coleslaw and beans. The turkey was outstanding, but the sauce dominates too much. Very good slaw, too.
1/2 warm 1/2 cold salad - vinegar and herb braised green cabbage, bourbon deglazed shitake mushrooms, sliced heirloom tomato, avocado.
A double pig sandwich. Pulled pork topped with bacon, arugula, pickled green beans on a ciabatta roll with garlic mayo and a side of sweet potato fries with raspberry ketchup.
Montreal smoked meat sandwich from Schwartz's, with a full-sour pickle and some very good coleslaw.

The sandwich is pretty much like a tomato, lettuce, and alfalfa sprout sandwich, if you just removed everything green and healthy and replaced it with salt, nitrites, and a big whack of fat and flavour. Delicious, but there won't be another one of these in my meal plan for many, many months.
Short rib bacos (baco = sticky bun shaped like a small taco shell)- from Saucy Porka, my favorite lunch spot in the Chicago Loop (Latin/Asian fusion).
Mongolian chicken at Liu Brothers. I asked for it to be made spicy - freaking fantastic. This simple dish might have been the tastiest thing I've had at their place so far.

considering that chicken is not a major meat in mongolia and they utilize very little spices in the cuisine =)

Name, authentic, whatever - it was delicious. They could call it Roseanne Barr Asscrack and I'd order again.
