You will not be disappointed with lunch, or dinner, in Kensington and Chelsea and you will definitely be spoilt for choice. There is something for everyone in this place. The borough has a history of immigration, although different from the east of the capital. In the fifties and sixties, folks from the Caribbean made the areas around Ladbroke Grove their home, so there are plenty of tasty stalls up and down Portobello where you can find some scrumptious lunches. The upmarket nature of the borough means that you can rub shoulders with ladies, and men, who lunch, and pop in to Bibendum for exquisitely dressed food, light salads, or even oysters. If you want to try Persian, one of the best Iranian restaurants in the capital can be found in Notting Hill, Alounak. At Harrods food hall, you can take your pick from fairy cakes, to fresh fish, with everything in between. If you just can't tear yourself away from Harvey Nichols and all its floors of treasure, then why not just swish up to the fifth floor and eat some organic food in their well appointed restaurant. As you are heading back into town, you might be tempted by a late lunch, or afternoon tea at the Lanesborough Hotel, or if you have already lightened your wallet enough with shopping, then you might stop by at Bumpkin for healthy nutritious fare.
