London/Marylebone Suggestion - Dining Solo

inoc | May 31, 200802:54 PM

So, I have a last minute business trip from NYC to London Mon-Wed this coming week, and would love to find a decent nosh somewhere in the Marylebone area -- anywhere in the area between Regent's Park and Hyde Park (please forgive me if that's not what the area is called -- I'm not exactly familiar with the area).

I'm looking for:

1. Moderately inventive cuisine, or very well done traditional,

2. Someplace I will feel comfortable dining alone (i.e., not overly "scene"-ish, or overly romantic) -- comfortable/friendly,

3. Price-wise -- it is a business trip that falls into "reasonable, but not excessive." Usually in the range of 20-25 GBP (damn this exchange rate). Of course, I'd prefer to pay more for a good meal than have the whole meal covered by work and have something mediocre.

4. Something on the later end of things the first night (this may just end up being room service unfortunately, depending on my all-day flight).

I'm equally open to a bar stool, a pint and a damn good gastro-pub experience as I am to a linen-and-silver sit-down meal. Also, a fan of Turkish/middle-eastern, etc...

Any suggestions?

If nothing really pops for the immediate area, then perhaps something easily accessible via the Tube from the Baker Street, Marylebone or Bond Street stations?

Oh, and as a side question, how exactly do your pronounce the neighborhood's name? I'd hate to be that irritating American.... (much as New Yorkers hate it when people call Houston Street "hew-stun" rather than "how-stun".

Thanks much,
