I have been searching these boards avidly for a suggestion for my one blowout dinner on an upcoming trip to London. I have been vacillating between Maze, GR at Claridge's and more recently Square, but I suddenly thought: I will be dining alone. And when dining alone I love to watch a professional kitchen cook together and do its thing. I had the chance to do that at NOLA in New Orleans, sat at the chef's counter just a few feet from the pass, and it was most entertaining.
Any thoughts on good upscale restos with amazing food that can satisfy my voyeuristic tendencies? I'm guessing Claridge's is def a no go! But perhaps one of the others on my list would work? Or is there somewhere else entirely?
Or are open kitchens still not really done in London? I was last there as a poor student 20 years ago so I don't know what the current trends are.
