England, London Guide (B): Travel Gourmet's Favourite Places to Eat in Soho, London

Travel Gourmet's Favourite Places to Eat in Soho, London
Soho is full of places to eat, from classic dining institutions like L’Escargot in Greek Street and Quo Vadis in Dean Street (both places I’ve been to but not for a long time and pre-blog days) to familiar chains like The Real Greek, Cote Bistro, and recent ‘chain’ favourite, Franco Manca (links are to other branches I’ve eaten in). My childhood memories are of Saturday mornings with my parents having morning coffee with gorgeous cakes at Maison Bertaux in Greek Street and buying Italian foods in Camisa deli on Old Compton Street – both still going and still very popular.

In my long-ago full-time working days as a book editor at Methuen, I remember lunches with authors and agents in another Soho institution, The Gay Hussar, also in Greek Street, which serves fabulous Hungarian food. In Frith Street you’ll find the famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, which I haven’t been to for so many years I can only remember seeing George Melly there (which does date me!) and further along, Bar Italia, which claims to have brought the cappuccino to London.

After rediscovering the fabulous Banana Tree last weekend, I realised that many of my favourite places to eat in London are in Soho. So, I thought it would be fun to give you my Top 5 – in no particular order!
