Am staying in London t/d end of Jan and staying in EC 1 , near Tower Bridge. I know this area can be a bit dead on Saturdays and Sundays - any recs you can give ? Have twice eaten at Rosemary Lane on Royal Mint St based on rec from Chowhound. First time outstanding ( Nov 06 ) ast time ( summer 07) very disappointing.
Also will be near the Barbican on Sunday evening - am looking at Canteen as safe bet but any where else instead ?
Finally will be at Lyric Theatre , Hammersmith on Friday - any good pre or post theatre places ?
All cuisines welcome so long as food is good and it isnt a pretntious rip off.
