At last! After working in the City for year's I managed to actually have a meal here, rather than just drinks. Coq D'Argent has long been a favourite venue of mine for drinks because of the lovely roof terrace where I have spent hours drinking with friends and colleagues in warmer months.
The restaurant is divided into two sections of Brasserie and Restaurant and we opted for restaurant. A set lunch menu offers exceptional value at £25 for 2 courses or £30 for 3 courses and I chose the honey and red wine glazed pork cheeks, which are always a winner for me and they were meltingly tender and the sauce was absolutely delicious, although the cripsy pig's ear did get left uneaten. I chose another slow-cooked dish as a main, with spiced lamb shanks and root vegetables, which again were cooked to perfection.
Dessert had to the creme brulee with lemon sable biscuit, glorious in all it's rich and creamy simplicity. It was superb, although I should have perhaps avoided such a decadent third course as my first two courses were quite rich and heavy. Full marks to Coq D'Argent though, not only are the drinks spot on but the food is also really good and offers great value, especially in the Square Mile.
