On our last day in London, we decided to return to The Wolseley for another fantastic breakfast. After a hearty breakfast, we window-shopped at Fortnum & Mason and Waterstones down the road as we had already packed our luggage and were ready to go. We then returned to the hotel around noon to make sure everything was ready before checking out. Since we still had a few hours before we had to be at Victoria station for the Gatwick Express train to the airport, we decided to eat somewhere within walking distance to the hotel.
The restaurant is bright and modern and has four separate areas – a bar area, the sushi counter, the main dining room and teppanyaki tables in the basement. We had booked a table for 1:00 p.m. and were surprised upon arriving at how full the restaurant was for a Saturday lunch. As soon as we were seated, we were given menus and offered a drink. As we were going to go on a flight shortly, we just ordered a large bottle of still water to accompany our meal.
The food came quickly and was of excellent quality – fresh fish, extra crispy tempura and properly grilled teriyaki. J finished his sushi and sashimi quickly while A and I took our time with our Bento boxes. I finished off my meal with s refreshing scoop of green tea ice cream and then we walked back to the hotel and got in a cab to take us to the station.
