National Dining Rooms
Tel: 020 7747 2525
Date of Last Visit: Sunday, February 24, 2008
The Victims: Julie, Jen, Niculie, Kellie
The Damage: £35ish each?
The Background: Julie has bought us all tickets to the Vanity Fair exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. We've paid her back, of course. But it was good of her to organize this. I like it when people organize weekend activities for me. I'm very good at showing up to events that other people have organized. I am also good at sitting around in my pajamas all weekend. These two things might seem unrelated, but they're not.
Finding the National Dining Rooms: As you're facing the National Gallery, the restaurant is in the building to the LEFT. Over by Canada House. I spent a while wandering in and out and around, looking for it. Don't do that to yourself.
The Service: Started out really well at first, but then grew distracted. Desserts took ages to arrive. We were all done with ours by the time Jen's showed up. (They just totally forgot to put her order in.)
The Bread: Hard! Really really hard to cut into.
My Starter: Butternut squash soup. Nice, but nothing spectacular. Needed salt.
