lunch and dinner itinerary with 11 y.o. DS

We will be renting a flat in Knightsbridge for a week mid-June. DH and I are former New Yorkers who love good food, DS will eat a variety, but not sandwiches, no sauces or dressing. He is well mannered in restaurants, but a very light eater. I am outlining our dining options now. Nothing worse than an overtired child and parents and no food in sight and no options available! Chowhounds have been very helpful in getting this far! In other travels, tapas and small plates often work well.

Monday: arrive from the US at flat around 11.
Coffee and a light snack on Brompton Road: Cafe Valerie?). Go to Film Museum for Bond Exhibit
Lunch: EAT or Great Queen St. Restaurant
Market at Wainbridge on Motcomb St. or M&S near Covent Garden for breakfast and snacks, Paul's for fresh bread and Pastries
Dinner: Le Metro on Basil St. (3 minutes from flat)
