Tate Modern, Southwark
After a long day of sight-seeing, even the most stoic foodies can succumb to the typically sub-par and soggy dining options inside most museums. Not so at the Tate Modern, whose award-winning, riverfront café pretty much blows other museum dining options out of the water. The full menu caters to adult and children's dining needs with everything from a light, flavorful smoked salmon salad (and a seriously good wine list) to perfectly crispy fish and chips. Did we mention that kids eat for free?
20 Upper Ground, Southwark
This botanical bar that crowns the Mondrian's Sea Containers on the Thames is stewarded by mixologist of the moment, Ryan Chetiyawardana. Besides his innovative cocktails—many made with high-tech techniques all his own—the Tom Dixon-designed space is plushly outfitted, and there are unparalleled views of the Thames both on the top floor of the hotel, and downstairs.
Brindisa Chorizo Grill
The Floral Hall, Stoney St., Southwark
If you're a meat-eater, this is pretty much the best sandwich you'll find in the whole of Borough Market. Brindisa, which is just around the corner, sets up a casual barbecue in the market selling their simple and winning combination of fresh bread and quality chorizo.
