Please help to tailor my restaurants list [London]

  • 1

i am a lone traveller and will be in london for 3 days in early september (sat- mon), practically going for the musical "love never dies" and a culinary holiday. i wouldn't exactly call myself a foodie but i always enjoy great meals. to me, a great meal would be made up of not just great food (ingredients + cooking skills) but also service & atmosphere & companionship (the last one doesn't count this time as i'll mostly be dining alone)

having 6 meals in london this time, i'd love to try a spectrum of food which the city has to offer, but concentrating on michelin starred restaurants and british fares (not that much for french since i will be spending the next 10 plus days in france but it is pretty hard to avoid when i want to try some michelin restaurants). after researching online and finally found this site and followed it for a while, i have come up with the following list:

Sat (arriving that morning on a long flight)
lunch - ledbury
dinner - govroche

Sun
lunch - would need some recommendation for a typical sunday roast. there are so many recommendation here i got lost...
- corrigans
- hix
- launceston place
- the bull & last
- the harwood arms
- thomas cubitt
dinner - l'autred pied

Mon
lunch - st john (the original branch) - is it worth to go if i don't eat intestine or sweetbread kind of things? but it seems that it is such an institution that i should go anyway. any thought?
dinner - if i have a light lunch at st john 'cos i don't each much of what they offer there, then i may go for a bit of fish & chips at golden hind pre-theatre; and have a proper dinner at quilons post theatre.

also thinking about trying Dishoom's breakfast one of those morning... worth the early rise? anyone? (i'm not much a breakfast person but this does look different from the normal english breakfast!!)

since i can't get a booking for gordon ramsay (not even lunch, sigh sigh...) now, is it worth to try one of his other restaurants? the one i've in mind is murano.

have i missed out any "must-try" places?? i'm open for changes as long as i could make a reservation at the proposed restaurant at this last stage.
