Hi there

In November OH and I will be on London with my mum for a Sat night dinner. London trip is on her so we are going to take her out for a slap up meal. She loves food, but there are some things she will not eat/even consider trying, which makes this a bit tricky.

We looked at sample menus for Arbutus - having had a great meal there before; Hibiscus; Pollen Street Social; Five Fields - but there was maybe one thing from each course she would have gone for. Obviously menus change, but I don't think that that is a great hit list and we want her to have a choice.

We do want to go somewhat upmarket as she loves eating out and she doesn't go out for real treats often.

The big no nos are Goat cheese; mussels; raw fish; Indian food; fennel

I have therefore narrowed down a list of

Galvin La Chapelle
Alyn Williams at the Westbury
Murano
Little Social
Social Eating House

Does anyone know anything that would fit the bill? We had also looked at Petrus - the new one - heard mixed reviews though. £65 pp with a chance of a reasonable bottle of wine £50 ish would be max - or less pp with a better bottle of course. I just don't want to pay for style over substance.

Have I missed anything? What would you recommend? It is difficult when you are only aware of the snapshot menu on the website

I think we are going to 28-50 in Marleybone for wine/late dinner on the Friday night - lunches and bfasts are sorted - going to St John for a bacon roll!!

Thanks for the help

Alison
