A restaurant to catch up in (?) [London]
Looking for some help from people. Have a very old friend in town for a few days and going for dinner with him. We have much to catch up on (our chats tend to get more and more existential the more we drink!) and I cannot think of a suitable place to eat in. I was thinking something along the lines of a gentleman's club where the food is good (a contradiction?) and we can have a nice, quiet dinner before retiring to large comfortable armchairs and pretend we are in an episode of Yes, Minister. Ideally in Zone 1.
I am low on ideas at the moment. I think I am looking for a combination between Dean St. Townhouse, the bar at Claridge's, the Guinea Grill on Bruton St..
Does Goodman fit this profile? I haven't been there myself but heard great things.
Help much appreciated.
