The City may be on the quiet side at the weekends, but there are some cracking restaurants there - not least at Bloomberg Arcade which houses a few on our list. All of these places will be at their buzziest during the week - and that's the best time to visit them.
D&D London, are behind this restaurant which is part of the South Place Hotel in the City. This restaurant sits on the top of the hotel and, as you can imagine from the title, does have a focus on fish. Expect a fine fining experience which has gained the restaurant a Michelin star.
Blacklock, famed for their chops have an extended menu in the City with new cuts, starters, and their all-important cut-price cocktails in a 100-cover restaurant with reservations available too. A good option for a great value meatfest.
Charred, smoked and grilled is the name of the game at Brigadiers, which is cooking up all manner of kebabs, chops, tikka and feasting options for hungry City sorts at the Bloomberg Arcade, with a huge selection of beer to wash it all down. It comes from the same people behind Trishna, Hoppers and Gymkhana - so it's easily one of the best Indian restaurants in the City (with a good bar too).
The City base for Vivek Singh's Cinnamon group of restaurants has been a staple of Devonshire Square for over a decade. Expect modern Indian cooking here.
Run by chef Pascal Aussignac, this Smithfield restaurant has been around for a couple of decades - an impressive feat in London - and has held a Michelin star for many of those years. So it's very much a London institution. When it first opened, they were met with criticism that the restaurant was on the outskirts of the City as opposed to being where all the other restaurants were opening. How things have changed in 19 years. It recently had a huge revamp to regenerate the restaurant - doubling the size of the kitchen in the process.
