What they say:

Sliding effortlessly into C&B's old stomping ground, The Otherist is a restaurant-bar that prides itself on catering for every mood. Despite taking over from an already popular name in the City, it'll add some quirk and edge to the area, stunning its guests with a vibrant design and explosive colours, picked by the expert team at Drake & Morgan. Alongside twenty different types of fine wine, guests will be spoiled by the impressive cocktail list, made up of both classic and bespoke concoctions. But most importantly, the food menu is available throughout the day, composed of flavoursome comfort dishes, sizable sharing platters and healthy salads. Whether you're popping in for a warming breakfast, tucking in to a working lunch or nestling in for a three course feast in the evening, the venue's certainly flexible enough to cater for all your needs.  

What we say:

Though saying goodbye to the C&B is going to be tough, we'd be lying if we said we weren't excited by the news of The Otherist. Perfect for the busy City, where the work never seems to end, the easy-going, all encompassing nature of the restaurant will definitely appeal to London's financiers, bankers and brokers. Crucially, the venue's success will depend solely on whether it can create a light, weightless atmosphere that offers the perfect rest bite from the area's never-ending bustle. Keep an ear out for the name, we have a feeling The Otherist's going to make a pretty big splash when it arrives.
