Recommendations around CROWNE PLAZA LONDON THE CITY [London]
It is excellent. I lunched there on Monday of last week, casing the joint for our office Christmas party, which we've booked there. Their slow roast rump of lamb was one of the nicest main courses I've eaten for a long time. Lovely intense jus. My colleagues' calf's liver, mushroom pasta and plain roast chicken all won praise.
10 minutes walk north gets you to the Bleeding Heart in Bleeding Heart Yard which would be my first target. A little east of that is St John which you will find much raved about on this board.
