Judging by the number of recent public loo conversions, clearly paying a visit to the Ladies/Gents is obviously going fast out of fashion. Perhaps we just don’t need to go as much as previous generations. How convenient evolution is.
So if you are looking for a fine twinset of former-toilette restaurants, look no further than Attendant for a Fitzrovia coffee (ironically there is no loo there now). Or for fine, mildly experimental dining that has set London’s gastro glitterati alight, try Story near London Bridge. Almost almost fully booked for the next three months. Perhaps you’ll even bump into George Michael, bumping and grinding – except he’ll be more likely to be grinding the coffee.
