There are also a few cold desserts available in the afternoon and evening (e.g. profiteroles).

Coffee is acceptable but should be in a black mug!

Concorde Room (CCR) LHR : menus 2015

Given Filthy's separate thread which confirms CCR holders can use the IAD "CCR", shall we include the menu here?

I'm not sure that the CCR LHR thread is quite the right place for it

we include the JFK CCR menu so it's not entirely LHR focused.

That is indeed a fair point, sir! In that case I propose that we change the title and make it the Concorde Room (CCR) : menus thread. There are currently only three of them, so I guess it makes sense to keep everything together...

I'm easy like a Sunday morning. ☺

Believe the real "third" is still coming so if we include IAD, that would make 4.
