Episode 53: Farewell London

by whitney & christina on December 5, 2012

It’s Christina’s farewell love letter to London. She’ll be debunking the misconceptions of London’s most outdated food stereotypes by sharing the restaurants and wine bars she’s come to love. And the ladies will break down the mystery of AOCs, DOCs, and IGTs. Do those three letters on a label equal better wine?

Christina is bidding London adieu after 11 years in the city’s embrace. This episode is a love letter to London’s food and wine scene, and why, if you’re not lucky enough to live there, it’s SO worth the visit.

Just a few of the best places to eat and drink in London (according to Christina!) 

Natural wine bars: Terroirs (the ladies dined there for Christina’s birthday in 2011), Brawn, Soif, Green Man and French Horn.



Also, 28/50 Wine Workshop and Kitchen, Gordon’s, and Riding House Café.

Restaurants: Hibiscus, Trangallan, Artubus, Le Gavroche, Trullo, Polpo (for campari bar), Hix (for cocktail bar), Gilarays (for gin bar), Dukes Hotel (for martinis!), Umu.

The ladies chat about their favorite English dishes and what wines to pair with them. Sunday roast anyone?
