FoxTrot Oscar sounds like a great choice! You may want to consider e-mailing the restaurant to see what options are available for the group prior to the 90 day window. Just a thought....

Foxtrot Oscar is 2.5 miles from the ABD hotel, they serve a Sunday special and a traditional English Sunday roast.

Sounds good here.

I will contact the restaurant tomorrow to see what the options are for a group seating.

And it's only a ten minute walk from Sloane Square, where certain people can put on their fascinators and become Sloane Rangers - Do Pat's and Eddy proud.

Laquoix sweety, Laquoix

OK, Pats and Eddy are the two main characters in Absolutely Fabulous (AbFab), a British Sit-Com. They are a little past their prime, but wander from shop to shop, drunk on thier faviourite drink - a mix of Stolli (Vodka) and Bolli (Champagne).

Genreally they stumble around the place spending extrordinary amounts of money on designer clothes.

A Sloane Ranger is defined by wikipedia as:

Sloane Ranger, a commonplace term in 1980s London, was originally popularised by British writer Peter York and co-writer Ann Barr in The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook (1982) and its companion The Official Sloane Ranger Diary. The books were published by the British society-watcher magazine Harpers & Queen, for whom Peter York was Style Editor and "was responsible for identifying the cult phenomena of "Sloane Rangers" and "Foodies".[2]

The exemplar female Sloane Ranger was considered to be Lady Diana Spencer before marrying Charles, Prince of Wales, when she was an aristocrat from the Spencer family. However, most Sloanes were not aristocrats as Diana was. Considered typical of SRs was patriotism and traditionalism, and a belief in the values of upper class and upper middle-class culture, self-confidence in themselves and their given places in the world, a fondness for life in the countryside, country sports in particular, philistinism and anti-intellectualism. The title of the Sloane Ranger handbook lists the subheading "the problem of Hampstead, in reference to the stereotypical Sloane Ranger's supposed antipathy to the champagne socialist stereotype of the Hampstead intellectual.


"Laquoix, Sweety, Laquoix" - is a reference to Christian Laquoix, a favoured designer for Sloane Ranger's both real and imagined. It is also the AbFab quote used in the Pet Shop Boys song of the same name.

Update on F O

I have been in contact with the Foxtrot Oscar - here is where we are -

September 4, 2011 at 6:30 PM is available for a small group.

I though 6:30 would be a good choice since there is a DIS meet that day and some people have plans later in the evening.

They have a private room that they could use for our group if we can provide twenty patrons. Working on getting a hold on that room now.

There is a reduced price (28 pounds) three course menu available with this room, I am waiting to see if the regular menu is also available.

OK, I've at least *heard* of AbFab... Thanks for the explanation, I think!
