23-25 Leadenhall Market, LONDON, EC3V 1LR
With long-established Billingsgate fishmongers Chamberlain and Thelwell behind this classy City operation, you can be sure that the fish and seafood here is as fresh as it comes. Spread over three floors amid the Victorian splendour of Leadenhall Market, Chamberlains buzzes with the power-lunch crowd who drop in from the nearby Gherkin and Lloyds. There's an all-weather terrace beneath the market's glass roof, while huge windows in the lively ground-floor dining room and more intimate mezzanine make for good people-watching, and wood floors, comfy caramel leather seats and white linen keep things light and breezily modish; for a more casual vibe (with a separate menu), head down to the bar and brasserie in the brick-vaulted basement. Sea-fresh seafood is what to expect in a menu that mixes classics (lobster bisque or skate wing with brown nut butter) with more modern thinking, setting out with silky butternut squash velouté with foie gras beignet, ahead of cod fillet with couscous, confit shallot, black cabbage and balsamic jus; meat options could run to roast grouse with turnips, crispy potatoes and rosehip jus.
