Hallelujah! Finally, the City has been given a decent restaurant and bar that offers great quality food without charging ridiculous prices. Not everyone in the City gets a fat-cat bonus at the end of the year you know! Not only is The Anthologist welcome but it is a breath of fresh air. A huge bar coupled with so many different dining areas, each unique from secluded tables for two to bench seating, bar seating and even deli counter seating, there is something for everyone here. The decor is lovely, the open kitchen does lots to keep you entertained. They have a fab seafood bar and a proper deli that sells all kinds of delights including speciality teas and wonderful olive oils. Anthologist caters to everyones needs. The menu is really varied, peppered with lots of City boy favourites like burgers and what can only be described as the biggest club sandwich I have ever seen, so large that even me (mouth-almighty) could not get my mouth around it and I cant believe how reasonably priced it all is… Did I mention it was resonably priced? If sarnies aren't your thing, fabulous seafood, spaghetti vongole, steaks, chicken, sharing platters, prawn and lemongrass lollipops, calamari – well, the list is endless!
Desserts are super cool with childhood favourites like banana splits and knickerbocker glory on the menu, its official, I'm in love. The only problem is that this place is so busy, you really need to book a week in advance, which is a bit of a dampener for a spontaneous lunch or dinner… But its well worth it!
