Hi all

it's my birthday tomorrow and I'm taking a half day from work, being brought out for lunch by DH. We'd like someplace fairly central in London (as I'd like to get some shopping in John Lewis in too, although all I am after is some new maternity bras so anywhere near to a maternity bra emporium would do fine ). Anyone got any brainwaves? somewhere nice, possibly with a set menu so it's not MEGA expensive.

Zinc - in Heddon Street just off Regent Street
Momo in same street - Moroccan
Rocket just off Bond street
Nicole - in the Nicole Fahri shop in Bond Street is nice - more light lunchy though.
Gordon's in Selfridges is nice - yummy salads and sandwiches.
The Mossiman restaurant in Dickens and Jones is nice too.

My vote would go to Zinc for nice food and trendiness or Momo if you want something a bit more romantic

Have a nice time

There's always Carluccio's in Market Place and St Christopher's Place. You can't book at lunch, but don't usually have to wait too long for a table. Not too expensive, but maybe not special enough for a birthday
