City of London

Cigalon

Provincial villages can be remarkable hubs of food , and the rustic mess of small-town cuisine can be had in many guises around London, including from the kitchens of Cigalon.

Corinthia

Afternoon tea can be had for £58 pp with additional glass of Laurent-Perrier. This is one I will be thinking of ardently, and returning to imminently.

Forge

Meat is the order of the day; either cooked in ‘the pit’ or on ‘the spit’, options include caramelized coco cola glazed pork ribs, spit roast chicken, and grilled sirloin on the bone.

Comptoir Gascon

The phrase used ‘douceur de vivre’ (sweetness of life), is adopted with ease and, like its Basque muse, Comptoir Gascon focuses mainly on duck, foie gras and truffle.

Ink

Ink is a Nordic-inspired restaurant serving aesthetically beautiful food in a minimalist environment. Its head chef, Martyn Meid, works to produce food that ‘connects people with space, plate and emotion’.

The Chancery

A taste of the orient is provided at The Chancery in shiso-dressed raw scallops with cucumber jelly, avocado cream, and sesame filo.
