What can I say? I’m sitting here waiting for my food. I ordered bread at 4.95 for a measly cold and stale small basket of bread with poor quality butter and oil with a load of vinegar. Prices have risen extortionately and quality has decreased....More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
