i come to london often and will be in town for 4 nights in december. i prefer to eat food i cant readily get in nyc so im focusing on british, indian and spanish. please let me know your thoughts on the following:
-great queen street...ive been here before and like it. its also central and i have friends meeting up from all over. i havent been since 2010 but is it still relevant or good? any other options in covent garden or soho for this sort of food?
-clove club...at the bar area. didnt feel like a set menu and the bar menu looks good. my questions would be, do they have tables at the bar area or is it just bar seating? how's the food generally?
-donostia...was looking for spanish and open on a sunday and donostia seems well received. i was pretty unimpressed by moro and brindisa on previous visits. any other suggestions for tapas?
-trishna...wanted upscale indian and pretty interested in trishna since gymkhana is booked up.
lastly, ill be going to rochelle canteen for lunch which i always love. is dishoom in shoreditch worth my time? any suggestions for interesting ethnic food? ive had great sichuan in earl's court, sim sum in westbourne grove, lebanese in westbourne...would like to eat more but would appreciate some recent favorites that you all enjoy.
thanks in advance.
