Itinerary Questions from a Visitor [London]

My partner and I are coming to London at the end of August from Toronto (Ontario). I know there are numerous threads but I have done research and need some help. I haven't decided for sure where we are staying, but surely somewhere in the core. Once I know for sure, I will share that, but really, it doesnt determine where I eat.
We love all food, but would like to focus on unique eats to London. Money is no object, we will be there for 3 nights and would like to do at least one Michelin star. We need ideas for:

Aug 29th Lunch + Dinner
Aug 30th Breakfast, Lunch + Dinner
Aug 31st Brunch, Dinner,
Sept 1st Brunch (will be leaving on a train to Paris)

So we have 3 dinners, 2 lunches, 2 brunches and a casual breakfast (something light and easy).

For sure will want to do:
Dinner by Heston B. (DINNER)

Sanderson Mad Hatters Tea (BRUNCH) - I am obsessed with Alice in Wonderland so while this may be gimmicky, I have a real desire to do it. Is it terrible?

Rules (LUNCH)

Somewhere for great Fish and Chips- considering Poppys, thoughts? (LUNCH)

Somewhere for great Indian- considering Roganic, Quilon Indian, Trishna or Kishmish- any favourites? (LUNCH/DINNER)

Other thoughts for meals I have read about:

Viajante (DINNER)

Pollen street social (LUNCH/DINNER)


The Ledbury (DINNER)

Cartmel (for STP- my all time favourite dessert)

What would you choose if you had the meals in London I have.
Any other really great restaurants/pub that are unique with great food that I should be checking out?
Where is great for brunch and breakfast?
Any food markets I need to see?

Thanks in advance!
