I'm meeting my parents and other assorted family members in London in a little less than a month (I'm in New York). The vacation happens to coincide with my birthday, so my mom would like to take us all out. We'll be about 6 or 7 people total and we'll be staying near Kensington High Street (although more than happy to travel for the perfect place).
Since it's *my* birthday, I'd prefer a farm-to-table influenced place, with something I can't get in NYC - modern English cuisine perhaps? My mom already veto'd St. John as being 'too weird' for my other relatives (we'll be going there later in the week).
Is it possible to make my relatives happy and still have a memorable birthday dinner? I'm not paying, so expense not really an issue, although I don't want to put my mother in poorhouse, as we've got quite a large party.
