Set Lunch options for great value (London)

molon | Aug 20, 2012 05:26 PM

Hello all

My friend is visiting me in mid-September (during the week) and I am looking for some set lunch options at restaurants that are usually quite expensive for dinner, but more affordable for lunch.

I have already tried a couple of those restaurants and would like to get some inspiration for something new. Places I've already been for lunch include:

- Pollen Street Social: quite liked it, especially the desert bar
- Hakkasan Hanway Place: some good dim sum, but wouldn't rush back
- L' Atelier Joel Robouchon: The egg/mushroom dish was interesting (although I have seen a variation of this dish at other restaurants too), otherwise a little bit disappointed
- Bar Boulud: great atmosphere over lunch and delicious food, particularly the Boudin Blanc

I have already made reservations for Dinner by Heston and tried to book a table for Gordon Ramsay Royal Hospital Road, but it was already fully booked. In fact, I don't necessarily need to go to any of his other restaurants.

I realise that my list is heavy on the "big names", but it should give you an idea of what I'm looking for. Nevertheless, I'm definitely open for something more "adventurous/edgy", as long as the food can offer something interesting and delicious. The budget for this meal can be between £30-45. Location is secondary, preferably somewhere in Zone 1.

Thanks for your suggestions and I will be happy to report back from my London lunch venture!
