ISO a blow-out lunch in London
Hello my fair 'hounders,
I am a gluttonous NYer stopping in London for a few days in early April. The purpose of the trip is solely to eat well and see friends; the Wolseley (for breakfast), Great Queen Street and St. John (or St. John Bread & Wine) are already on the list, as are Lahore Kebab and Tayyabs.
I am looking for a blow-out lunch on Monday - somewhere I can treat myself. Since it's Monday, Brawn is out. I did some extensive research and Pollen St Social, Wild Honey, and possibly Princi are options. Le Caprice is not included as I've been to the one here in NY (and I know it is a scene).
Ideally it would be somewhere I could sit at the bar and enjoy myself for the afternoon as I'll be dining solo. Am staying in Bloomsbury but location is not an issue - I know the city fairly well and can get around. Price is also not an issue. Would you choose one of those, or am I missing something?
