The B&L which has moved into the old Bistro du Vin site on Dean Street is much bigger than the Mayfair original. So great news that it's much easier to get a table (we visited during the no-reservations opening period) and the place is as buzzing as it used to be back in its glory days as an All Bar One. We also loved the red leather booths, the range of different-sized tables and the cocktail bar (Dean Street Breeze was just the thing for a Soho summer's evening). The food follows the B&L formula – burger, lobster or lobster roll – and it's just as good. However, don't expect to linger, as staff have clearly been primed to push tables through as quickly as possible. I still can't argue with whole lobster for £20, but £40 for an hour-long meal seems less of a bargain.
