Concept: Fancy farmhouse, with cheery lighting, irregular tiles, exposed brick, a metal basin for sink, and a glass cabinet displaying daisies.
Privacy: The sliding doors of the two loos don’t latch shut very tightly, and shadows dance disconcertingly in their frosted glass.
Amenities: A pint glass of potpourri, a whopping four toilet-paper spindles and an arsenal of back-up t.p. under the sink, ceiling speakers piping in Bloc Party and Arcade Fire.
Drawbacks: The old-fashioned spigots sometimes belch water too forcefully. When you return to your table, be prepared to deny that it’s backsplash.
Strategy: Waiters tend to loom near the doors; go immediately after you’ve sent yours on an errand so he’s not all up in your business.
