Praise

Even with the pummeled pound, getting out of a restaurant in London that cheaply strikes me as depressing and possibly illegal. But Elaine has managed to sniff out a wide range of excellent, affordable, attractive places — and not just in deepest darkest Shoreditch…Each entry in this adorable, slightly-larger-than-pocket-size book comes with a short review, suggestions for when to go and what to order and some very nice Phil Nicholls photos, not one of them of formica tables or fluorescent lights." –The Moment, The New York Times Magazine blog

"Elaine Louie singles out 50 spots for Stylish Dining under $25.00. When you see how humble some of these feederies are in the revealing photographs – pastry shops, burger joints, chocolate shops, department stores – you’ll be reminded how expensive London is and be impressed she found anything. Some travelers need to eat cheap but for others, dedicated to splurge at dinner, Louie’s finds will seem perfect for lunch or a snack." –Gael Greene

"What could be more fitting in tough times than a guide to saving money? High-priced London has a way of making visitors feel poor even when they’re not. This little book…is chock full of cheap-eats destinations, all serving meals under $25 (U.S.)." —The Globe and Mail

"Being in London makes me so happy….But the prices are so high! When I discovered this new little book, I pounced–and booked a flight." –Ruth Reichl, Gourmet

"If you’re looking for cheap eats, Savoir Fare London: Stylish Dining for Under $25 by Elaine Louie…might do the trick." –The New York Times

"A tasteful, eclectic compilation of 50 affordable, yet delicious restaurants, bakeries and bars with loads of style. Author Elaine Louie solicited suggestions from some of England’s top tastemakers, among them Peter Ting, (a crystal and porcelain designer at Asprey who also went to cooking school) and gallerist Libby Sellers. The entries read like e-mails you’d send to a close friend, all packed with insidery details like what to order, where to book in advance and where to people watch." –Mouthing Off, A Food+Wine Magazine blog
