This longstanding brasserie and bar certainly looks the City part – it's set within the kind of handsome, neo-classical former bank the Square Mile does better than anywhere. Inside it's a grand, striking space, all cream walls and marble, with a huge domed skylight above a circular bar, surrounded by high-backed stools for drinkers.
The menu, from head chef Juri Ravagli, is focused on modern-European dishes, though influences from across the globe also feature. Expect, then, options ranging from dressed crab, charcuterie selections, steak tartare and pumpkin risotto to a Thai beef salad, soya-marinated caramelised cod and curried fish cake with a lime yoghurt dip.
Breakfasts no doubt prove a draw for business meetings. Healthy options such as porridge, bircher muesli, fruit salad and smoothies are served alongside smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and chives, French toast with maple syrup, and a good-looking full English. And if you really want to start the day well? There's a sirloin steak, topped with a fried egg.
Perfect for events, breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a glass of Champagne in our Dome Bar.
Casually elegant, warm and inviting, it features the building's stunning glass copula – a centre piece dome designed by Italian architect Pietro Agostini, which houses The Dome Bar.
The food here is comforting and classic. Our 'chef's specials' menu changes each day to reflect the fresh produce of that season.
We offer our signature steak tartare and lobster spaghetti as well as plenty of seasonal specials such as the pumpkin risotto, catering for the vegetarian palate.
The 1776 dining room is our classic and elegant hidden-gem of a restaurant at the back of 1 Lombard Street, open for lunch and dinner. This intimate space offers a highly personal service with its sleek décor and decadent chandeliers making it the perfect spot for special celebrations and business meetings.
If you are after an event we also have a very versatile space, perfect for all occasions. We have a private dining room as well as options to exclusively hire the venue for events or weddings. For more information: http://www.1lombardstreet.com/private-events/
