This elegant building's origins as a papier maché factory are well disguised - as by way of being a bank and casino, it's now one of London's top American grill-type restaurants.
The whole is set over three floors and also offers a smart Martini Bar, which makes an excellent meeting place.
On the food front, a late Spring menu brought 'Caesar Salad'; 'Carpaccio of Beef'; 'Grilled Asparagus with Pecorino & Truffle Oil' and 'Maryland Crab with Red Pepper Mayo & Rocket' among the starters.
'Grilled Red Snapper with Cepes & Tarragon Butter'; 'Grilled Mine Lobster with a Sweet Corn Pancake'; 'Slow-Cooked Belly of Suffolk Pork with Celery Choucroute & Grain Mustard' and a wide assortment of USDA Steaks - listed among the mains.
Perhaps finish with 'New York Cheesecake with Blueberries'; 'Pecan Maple Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream' or 'Warm Chocolate Tart with Pistacchio Ice Cream'.
Their Saturday & Sunday Brunches are amongst the city's best.
Service has always been highly commended.
