Messrs Corbin & King's subterranean palace is a truly egalitarian establishment. The original hotel here aimed to "to make the luxuries usually available to the very rich open to the less well-off". In its current incarnation this huge restaurant does the same - offering starters at pre-decimalisation prices as well as one of the best prix fixe deals in town. Just off Piccadilly Circus, swanning down the stairs here always feels special - don't leave without ordering the singular Îles flottantes.
