Food was good & reasonably priced. It's in a storefront in a long line of storefronts. We walked past it & were hungry so we stopped. It has the feel of an old-timey fancy restaurant, but wasn't as assuming as would first appear. My DH...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
