Traditional Greek. Longstanding favourite. Last visit disappointing so hope it was a one-off bad day for them.

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite

Hoping to be with you for lunch 1pm Jan 6th. Reunion of folks who worked at the Middlesex Hospital years ago. Currently 8 people. Can you arrange a square table so we can talk, rather than a long thin one? Peter Cotton
