One Long, Edible Weekend in London: Please critique and suggest!

First, a thank you--This board took such good care of my husband and me last time we went to London. We were actually shocked, I'm sorry to say, at how well we ate. Granted, we are horrible food-snobs, having grown up in New Orleans and living now in NYC, but, my goodness is British cooking is better than it sounds!

Anyway, last time we enjoyed St. John Bread and Wine, Hereford Road, Tayyabs, and The Wolseley, and I had an excessive number of lonely teas looking out from the top of the National Portrait Gallery.

This time, our concierge scored us a table at Dinner Friday night, then we were planning to return to Hereford Road Saturday (perhaps it was because we got caught in the rain on the way there, but we couldn't have had a lovelier meal), then Sunday is a question mark, then Monday either Harwood Arms or the real St. John (reservations at both to be safe, but I promise I practice strict catch and release restaurant fishery, unless I'm REALLY hungry). I sense that we are falling into a pattern... Is this too redundant? Any advice on Sunday dinner (or lunch or can I drag my reluctant husband to fabulous high tea somewhere?)--more Indian might be good (or again, too redundant?) but my impression is that Tayyab's is the best around. Am I wrong?

Also, when he's at work Tuesday and Wednesday, I planned to go to the theater. Perhaps grazing through Borough Market is in order for a single girl's early dinner? What else would you recommend--I'm actually rather happy eating alone as long as I have a book and the waiters aren't mean to me.
