I'm a Conran fan, it might be a bit formulaic – I think it would feel like “GroundHog Day” if you went to lunch at Boundary one day followed by Lutyens the next – but for me at any rate its a formula that works: good food, served by knowledgable staff, in stylish premises, whats not to like?
Have been to Lutyens a few times, for lunch and for dinner, its a much better lunch venue, its easy to forget how dead that part of town is in the evening, lunch time the place is buzzing!
You will be greeted, at lunchtime anyway, by a well dressed man who looks like he's been in the business of greeting diners all his life, and as such he's rather good at it, making you feel immediately very welcome. Once inside the bar area is a bit non-descript but the dinning room is a fabulous room, light, open and vibrant.
The menu is typical Conran, not the most imaginative but full of family favourites, seasonal and well balanced.
The wine menu is a but too French which, since the sommelier is Italian, is strange, but there is value to be found. Service on two occasions was a bit slow, you shouldn't have to enquire after your food, but when they come they know what they are talking about.
Good for most people, except vegans, at lunch time, in the evening mid week, good for those who like a more hushed atmostphere.
