Looking for recommendations for a special birthday lunch in either Central or West London. Type of previous thumbs-up experiences have been Fat Duck, St John, Polpo, Petersham Nurseries? I've been asked to find something new and exciting - no pressure then?!

  1. Pied A Terre?

    1. Barrafina - lovely Spanish tapas which is great for sharing. Don't know if it's "new and exciting" though, but enjoyable nonetheless.

        i think barrafina is wonderful too - you do sit at the bar to eat so only go here if it is 2 or 3 of you.

        galvin at windows would give you cocktails, a lovely view (am sure you would get a window table at lunch but arrive a bit early, order your drinks and ask to be seated when one comes free) and great food.

        two very different experiences there - casual and intimate for barrafina, something more formal for galvins.

      2. Dean St Townhouse or Hix? Either the Soho branch or for something a little more special Hix at the Abermarle?

        1. Really enjoyed Le Cafe Anglais.

          1. My definate suggestion would be SKETCH on conduit street, it is to die for and the atmosphere is amazing, grreat for lunch! http://www.sketch.uk.com/#

            1. The Wolesley is great for a special occasion - just book ahead. In West London - try Hereford Road.
