East of the British Museum and 2 blocks from the Charles Dickens Museum, behind an old storefront amid the transporting upscale boutiques of Lamb’s Conduit Street, spend a languid meal sampling spectacularly well-chosen wines, cheeses, and sublimely fine slices of Spanish hams. There are also a few changing British-drawn dishes like gnocchi with wild garlic, baked Scottish cod, and Middlewhite pork chops. It’s perplexing how such simplicity can yield such a delightful few hours and make you wish you lived like this every day.
