My husband and I are going to be in London with our 2 children (ages 5 and 2) next month. We have 2 date nights planned but also need recs for great restaurants for lunch that welcome kids. They're not "kids menu" kids so I guess we're looking for foodie spots that also have high chairs and don't mind a bit of a mess. We're happy with gastropubs (do pubs allow kids?) too.
Also, we have 2 date nights planned--one night is at the Dock Kitchen and the other is still up in the air. Any suggestions for a spot near Green Park / Mayfair that's fun, a bit buzz-y and with great food. We're open to any cuisine--just no Michelin stars.
