I’ve yet to try it but I hear they do the best breakfast deal in Chelsea.
Matthew – I agree with a couple of your choices .ie. Sette and Blakes. I was recently in Sette and again it delivered in all respects. I was also surprised to see how busy it was on a cold Tuesday evening in January – a clear indication that this is now one of the ‘hot spots’ of Chelsea.
Re Blakes – well of course no one can argue with this choice. It is consistently good. It oozes elegance, luxury and mystery – all key ingredients to a memorable time. Regarding the other three, knowing you have selected these is enough to spur me on to try. I am sure I will not be disappointed. Meanwhile thank you for your stream of comments – always welcome and helpful. Best regards Bridget
Great points Bridget and thanks for the kind words. Hope to see you soon. X
