Portrait Restaurant, London

The View: On the third floor of the National Portrait Gallery’s Ondaatje Wing, this restaurant faces Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. The Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and the London Eye complete the postcard-perfect panorama.

The Food: Scotch beef carpaccio and truffle cheese are typical of Swedish-born chef Katarina Todosijevic’s modern British concept. For $25, you’ll get the works: cheese and apricot chutney and poached salmon, dill and caper sandwiches, a scone with clotted cream, lemon ginger biscuit, sponge cake, and a pot of tea.

Tip: It’s lunch only, except for a two-hour window (5:30–7:30 pm) for a pre-theater two-course ($24) or three-course ($30) dinner on Thursdays and Fridays.
