Spending New Years Day in central London - is it possible to find a good place for lunch? It used to be everything was shut but now I hear things stay open?
Location preferably around Leicester Square/Covent Garden
Not too noisy/loud - want to be able to sit down and have a nice chat with old friends
Budget is ~20-35ukp per person
Menu needs to contain vegetarian options (one vegetarian in the group)
No chain places please - although something like Carluccio's is ok.
Where can I go? I'd like to be able to reserve since I am limited on time and want to minimize waiting for a table.
