london: the wolseley

The Wolseley occupies an old bank building right next to the Ritz on Picadilly (actually, it was first an automobile showroom for Wolseley Motors Ltd).  It's a showstopper of a joint- all slick marble, polished brass, dark wood and high, vaulted ceilings.  A bit on the noisy side, it's a great spot for a boisterous dinner party or for dinner before a big night out.  Have a martini and be sure to sit at table 32.  It's the table with the best view; you'll be able to check out all of the comings and goings of London's stylish set.  The menu is rather simple so stick with the basics- oysters, grilled prawns, rib eye with fries...
