What sets Rowley Leigh's, restaurant apart is its classic French bourgeois cooking and - not least - a carpeted floor. Noise-shocked diners will want to murmur hosannas for this encouraging trend that makes it possible again to have a conversation while eating. The 175-seat room is enchantingly comfortable, make up of leather banquettes, booths that can squeeze four, and decently spaced tables for larger parties. The second-floor property has a new entrance with its dedicated elevator, the sexy bar area, and two colossal rotisseries on which rotate, boasted Leigh, everything edible that flies (and is legal to shoot) in Britain, along with really superb big chickens and great joints of meat.
