Since 1991, London Grill has been a staple in the mostly residential Fairmount neighborhood. Situated along Fairmont Avenue along with the majority of the other nearby businesses, the front room draws a bar crowd and those looking for a casual, lively atmosphere.
For a more formal sit-down dinner, try the back dining room; surrounded by glass, it resembles a greenhouse. When the weather is nice, sidewalk tables are popular.
The menu has evolved since its early days, with plenty of Asian, Latin American, and Mediterranean twists on the diverse and tasty menu.
Don’t miss the happy hour with $3 drinks and food from 4 to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
