Hi there

In November OH and I will be on London with my mum for a Sat night dinner. London trip is on her so we are going to take her out for a slap up meal. She loves food, but there are some things she will not eat/even consider trying, which makes this a bit tricky.

We looked at sample menus for Arbutus - having had a great meal there before; Hibiscus; Pollen Street Social; Five Fields - but there was maybe one thing from each course she would have gone for. Obviously menus change, but I don't think that that is a great hit list and we want her to have a choice.

We do want to go somewhat upmarket as she loves eating out and she doesn't go out for real treats often.

The big no nos are Goat cheese; mussels; raw fish; Indian food; fennel

I have therefore narrowed down a list of

Galvin La Chapelle
Alyn Williams at the Westbury
Little Social
Social Eating House

Does anyone know anything that would fit the bill? We had also looked at Petrus - the new one - heard mixed reviews though. £65 pp with a chance of a reasonable bottle of wine £50 ish would be max - or less pp with a better bottle of course. I just don't want to pay for style over substance.

Have I missed anything? What would you recommend? It is difficult when you are only aware of the snapshot menu on the website

I think we are going to 28-50 in Marleybone for wine/late dinner on the Friday night - lunches and bfasts are sorted - going to St John for a bacon roll!!

Thanks for the help
