Jackson Boxer: the best London restaurants for solo dining
It feels like Jackson Boxer has been a central part of the London food scene forever. Incredibly, he's not yet 40, but Boxer has helmed Rita's in Hackney and the short-lived but much-loved St Leonards, as well as two London stalwarts: the joyously maximalist Brunswick House in Vauxhall (where you eat in an antique-stuffed Georgian mansion), and his highly regarded Notting Hill seafood joint, Orasay. He's now taken on what might be his biggest challenge yet: overseeing the food at one of England's loveliest country house hotels, Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds, which reopened in July following a top-to-bottom transformation by the wildly brilliant Experimental Group. We talked to him about the best places to dine solo in London.
