Clos Maggiore Review

Clos Maggiore is a contemporary French restaurant in Covent Garden that was voted the most romantic restaurant in the world in 2016 and the most romantic restaurant in London many times.

Lyle’s London is a British restaurant with an a la carte lunch menu and set suppers. Last weekend we went for lunch instead of dinner. We haven’t done lunch in a very long time and Amen found Lyle’s with a promising lunch menu as it was “Game week” which meant that I would have a…
