London it is!

So finally I have shifted to London. Central London. Need to know so much about this place. Last time when I visited it was for a very short time of period. But now I have the full time to explore the city before joining my work. Friends can you suggest me great entertainment places, restaurants that I can visit. Last time I was on a hunt of beast steak in the city. Suggest me now what?

When will you be there?

Interests?

What kind of restaurant? Indian? Chinese? American? Thai? Seafood?

beast steak, is this a euphemism? Soho has some of the more interesting clubs.

Londontown.com

Be specific - you're asking about entertainment venues and restos (with no specification as to price point or cuisine) in a city of 8,000,000+. Do your own homework too.

"beast steak"........ Definitely sounds a bit dodgey to me.

Beast steak, like roast beast, is usually served with Who pudding.

Annhig; we saw him in High Society; amazing. Talented and funny guy. He's doing a Christmas show at Ronnie Scotts. I'm not in London that weekend, but would love to see that.

Glad the blog was useful and hope you enjoy the roast beast

Why not try for something more traditional like the best roast beef and yorkshire pudding Sunday lunch at a gastro pub. I can highly recommend the The Pig and Butcher in Islington http://www.thepigandbutcher.co.uk but perhaps someone else can give you somewhere right in the center of town.

The only Stilgoe I have seen perform is his dad, who occasionally could be prevailed upon to do a turn at village events when he wasn't engaged elsewhere. He used to do a great act where he made up a song based on suggestions from the audience - hilarious if you weren't part of the act that was going to be going on after him, very hard to follow if you were.
