A couple of people have mentioned WAGAMAMA.. could someone explain the Why? I think I'm missing something --eating a big bowl of noodles on a cafeteria table next to some one I don't know doesn't seem too enticing.

Wagamama is not fine dining. The reason I like it though -- only for lunch is that:
A) It is very quick and inexpensive
B) It is friendly
C) All their restaurants are spotlessly clean, well organized, and in convenient locations.
D) Every dish I have had has had outstanding flavor and the freshest of ingredients. There is no resemblance here to "cup o'noodles".
E) While it is communal dining, unless it is really full, I'm often not next to anyone. It really is no different than eating at a lunch counter, or even like 90% of the tables for two in the world that are lined up next to each other -- yes even in many fine restaurants. Just because there is 4 or 5 inches between my table and the next table, doesn't really mean its any different than being at the same table.

Another fan of anything touched by Gordon Ramsey here. The revamped Savoy Grill is my fave purely because it is closest to my home Comfortable surroundings, excellent food & service and reasonable prices (cheap for lunch!), I can't ask for more. I was easily able to book for both this and Ramsey's own restaurant at Claridges around 1 week in advance.

Another favourite of mine is The Bleeding Heart near Farringdon (downstairs restaurant although the bistro is pretty good too). It has a relaly nice atmosphere, great wine list & well spaced tables - with pretty good French food thrown in.
