What did Oscar Wilde have for lunch? Who bought their beef tea at Fortnums? Which king took a roast chicken to bed for a night time snack (and that’s after 11 courses at dinner). For the answer to these and many other foodie questions – and for a visit to a street market and a foodie look at Chinatown, join Ann’s walk looking at how Londoners dined downtown in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
FOODIES’ LONDON The West End – THE PRACTICALS
Foodies’ London The West End walk takes place at 10.45 am on Saturday, November 16 and at 10.45 am on Saturday, February 8. Meet Ann just outside the Green Park exit (by the fountain) of Green ParkTube. (Within snapping-our-fingers-distance-at-the-Head-Waiter of the Ritz Hotel, of course. And what gourmet dish was invented at the Ritz? Well, come and find out.)
