Leicester Square- the ultimate tourist trap (or so they say)! Had the most amazing time there tonight- or at least for several hours. Started off with a decent Chianti at the All Bar One and then moved on to the outdoor patio bar at the casino across the square. What a view! London really is the original melting pot of cultures from all over- and they all seem to congregate here. Enough of the drinks... Dinner was at Amaya- arguably the absolute best Indian restaurant in London. Of course, we didn't have reservations. But the Lithuanian hostess was kind enough to seat us anyway. A fine Viognier with spiced-to-perfection food (lamb chops, peppercorn chicken tikka and sweet patato chat for the curious) was exactly what was needed.
A walk through Knightsbridge, a look at a lighted up Harrods and the cool, fresh air was enough to wake us up enough to walk into the bar at the Mandarin Oriental. Cool place, hopping at 1 AM. Have not been fussed over as much for a long time! Another few drinks and we really were ready to call it a night.
Really liking London!
