London: We've done our homework. Help us mind the gaps...

Layne Murphy | Aug 6, 201309:40 AM

We are booked as follows:

Thursday: Wolseley. This is the day before my traveling companion arrives so I'm booked to dine solo. Good choice for a lady alone?
Friday: Lunch: Gallery Fortnum and Mason (sentimental attachment from living in London in 1970s)
Dinner: Nopi
Saturday: Lunch: Launceston Place
Saturday night we're seeing a show in the West End. We've told ourselves that after such a big lunch we couldn't be hungry again but we are self deceivers and I know we will leave the theater ravenous. What's good and not super greasy in the West End for late evening. Neither of us eat anything that ever walked on four legs.
Sunday: We're doing Heston Blumenthal for dinner. We'll have breakfast in our flat. V&A probable destination. Any good choices for light Sunday lunch?
Monday: Won't be in London
Tuesday: Lunch at Ledbury. Again, West End Theatre area for late snack. I will add that being from Los Angeles we aren't particularly interested in Chinese or Mexican ALTHOUGH I AM SURE THAT SOME OF IT IS REALLY REALLY GOOD.
Wednesday: Tea a Brown's Hotel (sentimental choice) Dinner at Quillon

Any really egregious errors or omissions? I realize due to scheduling we probably won't swing the Burough Market as Sunday will likely be our day at the Tate. Finally, and this will show I haven't been in London for about ten years, I walk almost everywhere and tend to wear a simple dress and sandals without stockings. They're not like Birkenstock sandals and my legs are shaved but I don't do super dressy or high heels. Appropriate for the places we're dining?
