Seafood in the City
Angler is a modern British seafood restaurant just off Moorgate station in London, part of the premium restaurant group D&D's portfolio and located on the top floor of the South Place Hotel. It gained a Michelin star in the 2014 guide and retained it in 2015. I am a big seafood lover and found top class seafood restaurants lacking in London so Angler offered me high hopes especially after such an awful meal at Outlaw at the Capital.
|smoked salmon, beetroot jelly, creamed horseradish|
|risotto of pumpkin & sage, roasted monkfish|
|Cornish cod, black cabbage, shellfish chowder|
|loin of pork, shoulder, sweetcorn, pickled apple|
|almond cake, poached pears & ginger ice cream|
|roasted plums, honey yogurt parfait|
The meal at Angler by no means was close to top notch but at that price it was acceptable, if the cod's seasoning was a touch less it could had been a wonderful dish. Service was great and the cocktails here were stunning, the bartenders really knew their stuff and delivered us some well crafted drinks that can stand toe to toe to some of the very best bars in London, overall not a bad evening at all.
What I paid:
£55 per head with a cocktail
Average cost without drinks and services:
Lunch menu: £30
Tasting menu: £75
