I'm flying through London this summer and plan to have dinner with a Scottish friend on a Saturday night between flights. We were thinking of a splurge -- £50-£80 pp. -- and would love some suggestions. I've been perusing restaurant menus for places like Le Gavroche and the Gordon Ramsay restaurants, but am concerned that I have seen very limited offerings for my vegetarian friend. One exception is Boxwood Cafe, which seems to have a lot of vegetarian options, though it seems a little more casual than we were initially thinking.
We have no interest in L'Atelier (though we enjoyed it immensely in Las Vegas) or Nobu (I've been very disappointed with Matsuhisa in Los Angeles and we had a horrible experience at Nobu in the Bahamas). I think we probably want to avoid Italian, as we will be going to Italy the following day..
Also, at the end of my trip, I will have three days in London on my own. If anyone has recommendations for some good places for solo diners, recommendations are welcome.
At both times, I'll be staying near Green Park.
