Eat and Drink in City of London
What The City lacks in terms of shopping, it more than makes up for with its choice of places to eat and drink. But if you are simply looking for somewhere to enjoy a spot of lunch, the Leadenhall Market traders have a thriving lunchtime City crowd on account of its close proximity to the Lloyds building.
Food wise, The City has an eclectic taste of restaurants serving everything from African and American cuisine to Thai and Turkish with an irrepressible number of fine dining options in-between. Given the overwhelming dominance of the financial district, you will find the highest concentration of restaurants in the district.
The City's restaurant district is shaped like the spokes on a wheel with Bank tube station forming the centre and all the spokes that emanate from this central point are the main roads that are home to the districts' main collection of restaurants, such as Cheapside, Lombard and Leadenhall Street's. The Finsbury Circus area to the north of the Stock Exchange also has significant number of dining and drinking options.
