Mini meet up in London at the end of May?

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

The impression I get from the Quo Vadis website (not the easiest to follow) is that all that has happened PP, the Hot Dinners article is already 2 years old, certainly the members restaurant is open and they mention Barrafina as occupying part of the premises

The Standard reviewed Barrafina in the new location in December 2016

Also nearly two years old?. :o I am supposed to be going to the Monet at the National in the next month. We always eat out afterwards. I’ll put in a request for Quo Vadis for lunch.

I did do a quick sanity check that they were taking online bookings for 30th May, and they are, would need to book by phone for more than 4 covers, but seems they are planning to be open at least :D

Hi and sorry we've been without internet for a couple of hours,
I love the idea and if someone can contact them let's give it a go. Thanks so much for you heroic efforts :hi5:

OK
Happy to book
Need a time (12.30?) and a fairly definite list of participants
I have
1. Ratatouille
2. Stokey Sue
3. PatsyMFagan
4. Miss Mouse
5. earthmaiden
6. Mr Zosh
7. Zosherooney

Any revisions?

The other advantage of me doing it is that if for any reason I am laid low I don't think it would be hard for Pat or em to take over

All sounds lovely. I will be in London three weeks later - what a shame that I always just seem to miss the trip of a returner. In the past have been just days (on separate occasions!) from Ian, Clive and Moira. One day we will make it work!

I'm out of the equation for a variety of reasons including I can't even find my clothes in amongst this fall out of house moving! I'll check up on photos of course. There will be some no doubt. Have fun! I'll do the next one. :grin:

OK
Confirmed booking for eight (8) at 12.30 on 30th May
That is the maximum that they can accomodate so from here on in it can only be swaps, not additional lunchers.

In fact, since the reconstruction, the biggest table in the main restaurant is 6 covers so we will be in the Member's Restaurant :D

Please pm me with any concerns about availability
