The restaurant located on Old Compton Street is deceivingly large - as you walk in the bar is classy and the restaurant extends to a separate area at the back. I was invited by a friend to visit for a free breakfast; naturally I couldn&t decline (even with the early start).I decided to order something a little different, The High Society Eggs Benedict made with poached eggs, lobster,...
