Indian restaurant in City
16 Prescot St - E1
Every mouthful is a joy, say fans of Cyrus Todiwalas airy and bright (somewhat eccentrically decorated) City-fringe Indian, where extremely attentive service is a hallmark, and where the man himself usually does the rounds in a clubbable fashion. The wide variety of unusual Parsi dishes quite different food to standard Indian fare are spicy rather than just hot (though you can have that too).
British, Modern restaurant in City
26a Tudor St - EC4
Sandwiches above the usual cut and especially good salads and tarts (savoury as well as sweet) meet the brief at this well executed coffeehouse, ensuring it is always full of lawyers from the local legal scene.
BBQ restaurant in City
13 Philpot Lane - EC3M
My inner caveman loves this place! Chops, crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle provide amazing meat and amazing value at this laid back and very cool, no frills Soho basement, which is a case study of picking something youre good at and sticking with it. In Spring 2017 it opened its second branch a larger City outlet off Eastcheap. Top Tip the amount of food on the All In has to be seen to be believed!

BBQ restaurant in City
Angel Court - EC2R
A place of worship for all carnivores! Neil Rankins underground BBQ and fire pit yearling in Soho is like a descent into Dantes dark and confusing world full of smoke and if you can sit at the bar, clustered around the firepit, you get the full-on smoke experience a theatrical and fascinating evening leaving you with an understanding of the hard work that goes into flawless carnivorous cooking (although you may be smelling it in your clothes for days). Most of the many reports say that if you like flesh, its a must simply cooked smoked meats; beef, lamb, goat served on a perfectly puffed flatbread or tacos, with a range of exceptional tapas and sides, delivering a truly multi-sensory event, with beautifully complimentary flavours. Ratings are undercut however, by a disgruntled minority who just dont get it: for me, it just didnt live up to the hype and the bill really stung!. In July 2017, branch two opened in the City, in Banks Angel Court development, with more Indian/curry influences (rather than Mexican ones, as in Soho).
