1. Barbecoa Steaks & grills restaurant in City 20 New Change Pas - EC4
“Stunning views over the roof top of St Paul’s Cathedral” at the City original is the “saving grace” at Jamie O’s temple for meat-lovers, where prices are “shocking” for what’s basically a BBQ – “I’ve had better on street markets”. A site at Victoria's new Nova development and a massive 300-cover Piccadilly sibling are planned for 2016.

7. HKK Chinese restaurant in City 88 Worship St, Broadgate Quarter - EC2
“Challenging, interesting and fun” – the Chinese cuisine (much of it served from extensive multi-course tasting menus) at this Hakkasan-cousin, near Liverpool Street, is London’s highest rated; the interior “looks lovely” but is “a little quiet”. Top Menu Tip – “the best duck ever”.
8. Angler, South Place Hotel Fish & seafood restaurant in City 3 South Pl - EC2
“A surprise find in the City, especially on top of a hotel” – the D&D London’s rooftop venture is a superb all-rounder, complete with “great views” and an outside terrace; the fish-heavy menu is “elegantly realised”, and the set-up is “super for business – calm, smart and efficient”.
9. L’Anima Café Italian restaurant in City 10 Appold St - EC2
The “less formal (and more keenly priced) sister restaurant of L’Anima” occupies “spacious and inviting” premises around the corner from its sibling, and serves “highly authentic” Italian grub, including pizza.
10. Sushisamba Japanese restaurant in City Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate - EC2
“You can’t argue with the view from the 39th floor!”; this dazzling City eyrie combines “amazing vistas and outside spaces” with “heavenly” Japanese/South American fusion fare – “incredibly fresh, zingy flavours, blended with panache”. And yet… for some reporters “everything is slick, it looks brilliant, but it lacks heart and soul”, not helped by the merciless prices.
