1 Lombard Street
1 Lombard Street is the Square Mile's most established restaurant and arguably its best placed, situated in pole position next to Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of the City of London, and directly opposite the Bank of England. Housed in a former Grade II-listed bank, it was opened in 1998 by former banker Soren Jessen and comprises a 1776 restaurant, brasserie, bar, private dining and events rooms. 1 Lombard Street is where the city meets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, launches new businesses, signs deals and celebrates profits. And it's even where the city gets married.
The foundation of our food begins with quality ingredients sourced from trusted suppliers. For Juri Ravagli, provenance is key. His dishes are rustic at heart and elegant in execution often based on classic methods such as braising, slow-roasting, caramelising and confits. Juri's cooking style is classic and contemporary, gastronomic and bistro, European and Eastern, resulting in a varied menu to suit every taste.
The 1776 Restaurant is housed at the back of the brasserie and is open for lunch and dinner with a menu designed by Head Chef, Juri Ravagli, formerly of The Drones Club, Harry's Bar and George Club. You have the choice of ordering from the a la carte menu or, the silver service roast meat trolley which is carefully carved by the manager at your table. The a la carte menu has European influences and includes dishes such as: fallow deer tartare and black pepper and mint crusted loin of lamb. The impressive dessert trolley changes daily. For exceptional cuisine and first class service 1776 is most certainly the place to dine. The impressive dessert trolley changes daily.
