My wife and sons (11 & 15) are in London for the last bit of half term break, and, after great meals at Pizza Pomodoro on Thurs evening and Simpsons (Cornhill) for lunch yesterday, I was detailed to remove them and take them somewhere for supper last night (a Friday).
Our first stab was Belgo Cov. Gdn. but forget it. Dozens of people in the entrance bit, hundreds milling about outside and at least 30 mins wait. We were not booked and I guessed they'd be busy (pleased for them), but we left them to it.
Next up was Ishbilia off Lowndes Sq. which was fully booked and couldn't help. No mayhem here though.
As a final resort we walked the 200m to Harvey Nichols and sat at the Yo Sushi! conveyor belt. Now, I expect that experts might be a bit sniffy, but we had a terrific feed. Lovely food. My sons are eating machines and came away having loved it. Me too, especially as the bill was way under £20 a head (just 1large beer for Dad, unlimited free fizzy water for kids).
We will return.
