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 drink in our Dome Bar.
