1110 Restaurants near Bank London

Until the late 1990s, the City of London was pretty much a no-go area for serious foodies. Sure, there were wine bars aplenty and a handful of high-end lunch venues for client entertaining. But for anything in the slightest bit contemporary, fashionable or fun, Square Mile diners had to take their expense accounts to the West End. 

How things have changed. Today the City, and in particular Bank, is home to some of the most cutting-edge restaurants in London, located in some of the most dramatic settings. From the high-end thrills of skyscraper dining and haute-cuisine sophistication to more affordable sharing plates of tapas and dim-sum. Whether it’s for a quick and nutritious lunch with colleagues, or a long boozy affair entertaining clients, there is such a plethora of restaurants in Bank to choose from that you really needn’t go back to the same place twice.
