Lunch recommendations by museums & critique my dinner reservations

After lenghty consultation of these boards and all your very good advice, I have dinners pretty much set, but open to changes. Before we get into that, a few last minute recommendations:

1 - Going to take our time vising Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament/ Whitehall, and the National Gallery/ National Portrait Gallery. Any good casual recommendations along the way?

2 - Plan on checking out Bombay Brasserie. The day that works best in the schedule is Sunday, when they seem to have a lunch buffet. How does this rate in terms of quality? Is it vastly different than their usual offerings? Are reservations required?

3 - I'm going to the Royal Opera House on Tuesday evening. I've read a few posts on Scott's in Mayfair, which makes it sounds appealing. I'm thinking of either a late lunch or early dinner here before the opera (with plenty of time to get from Mayfair to CG). How does that sound? Any other recommendations?

4 - Any great locales for pre- or post-opera drinks?


Here's what I've reserved for dinner. Interested in your thoughts:

St. John
The Square
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Many thanks!
