Judging by the amount of feedback, just about everyone has a vocal opinion about Bread Street Kitchen – Gordon Ramsay's shiny, high-decibel City gastrodome. Inspired by the lofts of east London, this sprawling, two-tiered rendezvous will never be the venue of choice for agoraphobes, but it generally hits the mark thanks to an easy-going vibe and fresh-tasting, ‘well-priced' bistro food. The rustic menu divides into ‘raw bar', ‘hot kitchen' and ‘wood stone', which means anything from a salad of quinoa, pomegranate, cucumber, raisin and radish to a short-rib burger or roast saddle of lamb with olive-oil mash, peas, broad beans and new season's garlic. The wine list offers affordable drinking by the glass, and there are plenty of enticing cocktails, too. ‘It's not your usual GR experience', notes one convert, and snappy service generally keeps pace with the kitchen's high-speed output.
