If you're looking for seafood in London, you can't go far wrong than Gatti's in Moorgate. Just a stone's throw from the station, they deliver tonnes of tasty Italian treats across their two floors, including a very strong seafood section. Wash it all down with delicious wine from their wine bar and you're in for a treat.

If you've got a hankering for lobster, then look no further than Steak & Lobster, the restaurant group with venues in Marble Arch and Bloomsbury. The swish spots serve up a neat selection of lobster dishes, along with a great meat offering, all washed down with smart cocktails.
