Leicester Square tube. St Martins Crypt is down a glass-enclosed staircase opposite the Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square. It's a large underground cafeteria - fresh salads, hot dishes, puddings with custard.
The Crypt is a cosy place for indoor winter sketching; a brick-arched interior with lots of tables and people.
Meet at Midday to grab some tables before it gets busy. I suggest we congregate along the back wall furthest from the counter and away from the bright lights, to chat and sketch for a couple of hours over lunch.
