All In London Review

Brilliant big brasserie in the City

Review Image
For one of our regular editorial lunches, my colleague suggested that we tried this place out which opened just before Christmas. It’s located on South Place – just around the corner from Finsbury Circus and Moorgate and in an area that really needed another quality eating establishment.

It’s big. There’s a metal theme to the décor – bright copper on the mesh grids across the wine racks, burnished steel on the table tops and around caged lights. There’s an impressive shiny metal staircase with lights embedded in the steps down to the
On one side of the ground floor is an immense bar – with a particularly attractive Nordic-style open fire on top of one of the high tables. On the other is a more conventional restaurant. It’s relaxed and informal but smart enough for the City. There’s an open kitchen here with the slogan “Embrace flights of fancy” emblazoned over the top.

We each had a large glass of Chenin Blanc (£4.90) and there was a rather attractive water carafe on the table along with fresh flowers. There was a startling selection of starters and main courses. Steaks featured heavily along with chicken, duck, grill/burgers, salads, fish and vegetarian options. There are options for a two course express steak lunch (£18.95) and a slow roasted suckling pig to share (£35 per person).

We both ordered the cured gammon chop (a sizeable chunk of expertly cooked pork) which arrived with a roasted tomato and chips (£11.95). Exactly what we needed on a cold and miserable January day.

There were nice touches too – such as the bowties worn by male and female waiting staff and the feather design on the front of their aprons. The flatware is all cheerful flowery prints. The mint tea we ordered at the end of the meal was free and the ordinary tea just £2.50.

Service was unhurried – and the friendly waitress seemed a bit hampered by the sluggishness of her hand-held ordering device for which she apologised.

The meal came to £44.60 which seemed reasonable considering the location and the ambience.

There’s also a DJ on Thursday evenings.
