Chefs and restaurateurs eat out more than some of us and know more about food than most. I asked about 50 of the U.K.’s culinary masters where they enjoyed their best London restaurant meals of the year.
The Langham is offering afternoon tea at 1865 prices -- the equivalent of seven pence (roughly one shilling six pence or 10 U.S. cents) -- on June 10 to mark the 145th anniversary of the first such service at the London hotel. The Wonderland Afternoon Tea, which features finger sandwiches, scones and French pastries, normally costs 35 pounds ($50). It recently won the Tea Guild’s Top London Afternoon Tea 2010 award. Bookings open on June 1 (tel. +44-20-7965-0195) and a minimum of 60 teas will be available.
