Often booked out by those organising Theatreland opening and closing parties, Russell Norman’s WC2 branch is also a fun place to host an alternative Christmas dinner. Alternative because its festive set menu offers diners a choice of well-turned Italian small plates, the likes of which one would find in the bacari (wines bars) of Venice. The basement Aperol Bar offers private environs to host, while its skylight means daytime events are equally as attractive a proposition. Book from between 19 and 30 November and you’ll be rewarded with a free upgrade to the premium set menu.
