Any thoughts on the list? Also I can safely say I've never been to any of them except for Splendido, and that was a while ago. Any recommendations for sleeper hits in this bunch? #2 flies in fish from Japan. That's why it's expensive. When Joanne Kates was there, she said they didn't have a liquor license but I think they rectified that. Queen & Beaver is more a posh pub. They have a nice pub lounge at the top and that's where I go. Setanta and GolTV for those interested. Nice rabbit meat and scotch eggs. Don't really like their chips, which are more like crisps. If you go weekday afternoons you get pounced on by the weirdest ex-pats (weird as in they would be good conversation partners with Prince Philip) I already went to Splendido - good service, pretty busy at night if you don't get a reservation. Ame is like Ki but less pretentious and a lot quieter. Their grilled fish come filleted and then they put it back on the fish. I wouldn't say I saw a huge amount of creativity with the sushi though. Hoof Cafe is where you go waiting to get into Black Hoof - kind of like going to Hank's waiting to get into Wine Bar. Although they're known for their meats, they also have a neat cocktail list where all the ingredients are made from scratch (no Real Lime). Guu is where you go to wait 2 hours for a table. Paramour is supposed to be the product of a server from Splendido - was hoping to try that some time. I heard it was a good place for a vegetarian person.
