London's West End is "perennially popular" with diners
Date Posted: 23/09/11
Diners are continuing to choose restaurants in London's West End despite the current economic slump, according to an expert.
Guy Dimond, food and drink editor of Time Out London, said that those booking city breaks make the West End a "perennially popular" destination for eating out.
He noted that small plate menus have contributed towards affordable eating in this area of the capital.
"Rather than having big portions that cost £15 to £20 in the West End, there are lots of restaurants doing [larger] tapas-sized portions. You will pay as much as you [would to] eat a full meal, but not everyone wants a full meal, they just want something to keep them going when they're out on the town," he added.
Mr Dimond's words came after figures from Zagat revealed that London diners are going to restaurants more often in 2011, with the average cost of a meal in the capital being £43.40.
