We’ve been to MANY, MANY ristorante Italiani in London. We’ve been to a few restaurant français, just one Pan-Asian, many gastro pubs and a sampling of British restaurants (hmmm, which ones?). But we went to our first restaurante Espanol.
Along Seymour Place in Marylebone is a row of lovely restaurants. We were at dog-friendly Bernardi’s (one of the MANY Italians) last December. Lurra, which means “land” had opened not so long ago and Jacqui suggested we pooches give it a try as it is very dog-friendly. Mummy loved it! As for Jacqui – look at ALL those wine glasses! She’s really enjoying it!I sat in my usual place – on the banquette Miuccia and George stayed quietly on the floor.Well, George, he had an outburst earlier when this dog appeared near our space. His owner thought George wanted to say “hello” but that was not a “hello” bark. He just didn’t like that un-neutered dog who was strutting his stuff. Didn’t bother Miuccia and I. Guess George was a bit jealous.
The diners at the next table loved having us there – they are dog-lovers too so we struck up a conversation. They each have dogs and now they know they can bring their doggies.
They had the much talked about rib-eye steak and they generously asked if us doggies would like some. YES!!!! Thank you!
Jacqui cut it up so we can all share. But as soon as it appeared, it disappeared. We’re all such gobblers! LOL!Mummy, please vote that we stay in the EU. If we don’t all these wonderful Italians, French, Spanish restaurants may all go away. Then we’re down to jet gastro-pubs and pubs.
Another lovely restaurant that is dog-friendly. London’s changing – maybe it’s the influence and presence of (some) the European countries where they seem less uptight about dogs in eating places. Italian, French now Spanish. Next one on the list – Portuguese.Lurra serves a delicious Basque menu in an airy dining room – plus a basement and a courtyard. It is the sister restaurant to Donostia across the road. It was so good, already planning on going back!
