Nothing spells existential despair like a Saturday in central London. However, lunch from Paul Rothe will lift anyone’s spirits. The oldest of old-school sandwich shops (it opened in 1900), this century-old Marylebone deli will do anything you like. You’ve got old friends like coronation chicken, a variety of cheeses on offer, pastrami, and all manner of sandwich mixes for you to peer into under the counter. We like to keep things classic with the egg mayo, anchovy, and chive combination on springy white bread. Inside it’s a mix between a caff, a deli, and a kind of Ye Olde Chutney Emporium. Manners are encouraged but don’t make the mistake of standing on ceremony: there are half a dozen or so tables plus a little counter, and it’s first come first served. So order quick and grab a table.
