Featured City Restaurants
. Café Spice Namaste
Indian restaurant in City
16 Prescot St - E1
Cyrus Todiwalas genuine, exotic and intriguing Parsi cuisine relies on spices rather than heat (though you can get that too) and delivers some perfect flavours. The man himself is very jolly as he works the room at his Whitechapel HQ, where theres always a cheerful welcome, and great service.
. Pitt Cue Co
American restaurant in City
1 The Ave, Devonshire Sq - EC2
A meat Mecca and no mistake this epic US-style BBQ has transitioned beautifully from Soho to its stunning new home in Devonshire Square, and its dishes are off-the-charts good, if not for the faint hearted (pigs head scrumpet? Yes please!). Service tries hard these guys clearly love their meat, treat it with respect and have tremendous knowledge of the breeds of animals and the cuts. Excellent bar too.
. Canto Corvino
Italian restaurant in City
21 Artillery Lane - E1
This bright and sparse modern Italian, with its very posh decor is a superb addition to the restaurant scene around Spitalfields Market. The cooking an excellent range of small plates is very fine, and service is top class. Top Tip highly recommended for larger groups looking for a special dining experience.
Indian restaurant in City
11 Whites Row - E1
Pairing Indian ingredients and East London creativity, leads to this vibrant, if small Spitalfields newcomer, serving indulgent and interesting Indian tapas from an ever-evolving menu.
Chinese restaurant in City
88 Worship St, Broadgate Quarter - EC2
Some of the best Chinese food in the UK is to be had at this expensive but brilliant member of the Hakkasan clan, north of Liverpool Street, and it attracts a broad cross-section of diners, from out-and-out foodies, via bankers to local Hoxtonians. However, reporters are not so keen on the room akin to a 4-star hotel in Bangkok, which when empty has a ghostly quiet ambience. Top Menu Tip the unbelievably tender, cherry-wood smoked Peking duck is nigh-on a religious experience.
