Restaurant: 34

If you’d like to treat a man in your life to a slap-up meal, then this new restaurant by the owners of The Ivy, J.Sheekey and Le Caprice, is the place. With it’s leather banquettes and Argentinian grill, it’s definitely more on the macho side rather than for ‘ladies who lunch’. On the menu you’ll find a great hamburger (£16.50) and choice of steaks (from £19).  And if meat isn’t your thing, there is always the roast lobster (£39) or seafood ceviche (£13.25). The service is immaculate and whilst it isn’t cheap, you do feel like you’re somewhere to celebrate. Hint: if you’d like to get a table before Christmas, weekend lunches are your best bet.
