Top 10 things you need to know about the Brasserie at 1 Lombard Street:

1) A bar, a restaurant and a brasserie make up the choices at 1 Lombard Street. While the restaurant, formally christened as The 1776, offers high dining with even higher prices, the brasserie, situated under an impressive domed skylight, serves comforting classic dishes at a reasonable cost.

2) Although I’m familiar with the Royal Exchange and the area around it, I spent 20 minutes walking in frustrated circles looking for 1 Lombard Street using Google Maps before ditching my phone in favour of actually looking for the restaurant the old-fashioned way. Lo and behold, it is in fact directly opposite the Royal Exchange building (just as the website says).

3) It’s hard not to feel scruffy in the restaurant: unless you’re in a pressed suit and wearing a cravat, you may feel somewhat out of place. The venue attracts City slickers: bankers and people with money, drawn like homing pigeons to the former bank.

4) The building itself is beautiful. It has a Victorian elegance, with vast ceilings and classic décor. The glass cupola takes precedence in the room, bathing the central bar area in gorgeous light during the day.

5) While I felt slightly self-conscious about my appearance (I had a ladder in my tights and dreadfully windswept hair), the courteousness of the staff put me fully at ease.

6) Our food experience was mixed. A starter of Thai beef salad lacked the chilli punch and freshness of authentically Thai dishes, and instead, unfortunately, the tender rare beef (the saving grace) was somewhat drowned in a gloopy dressing of unknown origin. A risotto starter was better: creamy and comforting with delicate onion and pea flavours,

7) We were more successful with ours mains. Monkfish wrapped in speck and served with a light shellfish sauce was delightful, while the steak was cooked perfectly medium rare and could have been cut in half with a spoon.

8) The Brasserie wine list is reassuringly extensive, with wine prices ranging from the sublime to the extreme.

9) The sommelier suggested wines to accompany our courses, including a delicious dessert wine I never would have thought of ordering.

10) 1 Lombard Street may appear ostentatious from the outside, but the combination of satisfying food and friendly waitresses mean anyone feels welcome. more
