Neighborhood: Chelsea, London
This family-run restaurant in the Kensington nabe has been known for its comfortable and friendly atmosphere and delicious Middle Eastern fare for over a decade. The staff is always warm and friendly, the wine and tea section are wonderful, and the takeout counter at the front makes it an easy spot to stop for takeout. The candlelit tables in the very back make it a great spot for a nicer dinner and date night, too. Elizabeth Street Mom Eliza Koziell loves the restaurant’s many vegetarian options.READ MORE
Tangerine Dream Café
This relaxing café is located inside the Chelsea Physic Garden, London’s second oldest botanical garden. The food is “quite simply top restaurant food at café prices,” says Elizabeth Street Mom Eliza Koziell. And everyone else agrees—lunch doesn’t get much better than it does at this place. The seasonal menu sources only the freshest ingredients and draws on a mix of cuisines.READ MORE
Sign of the Times
Elizabeth Street Mom Eliza Koziell is “addicted” to this “fabulous, nearly-new second-hand store.” Sign of the Times resells all designer labels—think everything from Chanel to Hermès to Prada—at a fraction of the original cost. The owners are great about keeping the turnover fast and styles current, and the store is set on two floors. In other words, passing hours upon hours shopping here is all too easy.READ MORE

Its location on Mount Street, one of London’s prettiest shopping streets, beautiful mirrored ballroom and all round muted elegance make it Zoe de Givenchy’s all time favourite.READ MORE
