Lutyens Restaurant with Donald Brydon CBE, chairman Royal Mail Group
When Reuters was the last big news organisation to leave Fleet Street in 2005, vacating the building now occupied by Lutyens, a service was held in nearby St Bride’s Church. Mutual convenience dictated the location of our lunch, but the irony was not lost on me as I made my way to the restaurant. It is all but impossible to imagine my guest Donald Brydon wallowing in the sentimentalism of hacks mourning the glory days of the Street of Shame. He has always looked forward.
