Categories: London, Pop-ups, Restaurants     Tags: , , , , ,
The first thing that strikes us as we enter the second-floor restaurant of New Bond Street’s plushest department store is how bright the restaurant is; lots of natural light, white tablecloths and mirrored walls ensure that a lunchtime has a positive glow about it, as it should...

The menu is imbued with crab throughout, even through to the cocktails; we order two Crabby Marys and are delighted to discover a gigantic claw sticking over the salt-and-peppered rim of each glass as garnishes.
