Restaurant Recommendations around Bank Station

A friend asked us recently for some restaurant recommendations in and around the City. Restaurant recommendations are something we get asked for quite often but being SW6, E8 and E3 based, the City isn’t an area we can claim to be AS expert in!

Here’s what we thought but we would welcome the knowledge of any City foodies out there… Do you agree? Is there anywhere we have missed?

We have also added these to a handy map which can be downloaded here.
