Top Dog Diner on Frith Street in Soho is serving a "Patty McGuinness" for St. Patrick’s Day (and through Saturday) - two patties, smashed onto the grill with a flat iron, Guinness-braised onions, Jameson BBQ sauce, lettuce, Irish cheddar on a brioche bun.  You can get it with a side of Colcannon fries - skin-on crunchy fries with crispy kale, bacon dust and spring onions.  Add a shot of Jameson to finish it off!

You stated above "Follow the St Paddy's Day Parade floats and marching band, which begins in Piccadilly at 2pm". The parade started at 12pm, so I and many others missed it because you got it wrong. Thanks!
