We decided to stay in London at Montegue on the Gardens, partly because it is close to the British Museum and also because they have a highly recommended high tea. We had a lovely stay, the hotel strikes a nice balance between being very British in it's furnishings and very friendly with regards to service and staff. Aside from that, it is located on a beautiful street in Bloomsbury, a block away from the British Museum and close to Covent Garden, the Theatre District and Oxford Street. In addition the private gardens in the back are really beautiful.
We decided to go out for lunch yesterday, to a restaurant near us, La Gare, built in a previous railroad station (hence the name). It is a lovely little building on 19 Chaussee de la Muette. We thought it would be small, but the building is used only for the bar and the restaurant is down some stairs behind and is quite large.
