What they say:
The brainchild of former Racine chef patron Henry Harris and Harcourt Inns founder James McCulloch this new grill restaurant near Mansion House is offering some of the finest steaks in London. Though small, the menu offers an interesting selection, from smoked eel to rib-eye steaks and tomatoes on toast, not to mention Henry Harris' famed steak tartare. With a number of delectable house cocktails, including an Armagnac Martini, and a primarily Bordeaux-influenced wine list, it's a hearty and enticing addition to the City of London dining scene.
What we say:
Located inside a Victorian townhouse, this new Mansion House eatery is comprised of a ground floor pub, two dining rooms spread across the second and third floors, and two further serviced apartments occupying the upper floors. With a kitchen headed up by former Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor chef Douglas Brunen, the succinct and simple dining menu serves up grilled meats and prawns alongside an interesting array of starters, desserts and butters. The ground floor bar also offers a daily sandwich which could be anything from mushroom and goats cheese, to a juicy hamburger.
