Angler, Moorgate

Angler, hidden in the heart of the City of London, is one of my favourite restaurants and was another on our hit~list now we’ve returned.  Tony Fleming set up Angler three years ago, and since achieving his first Michelin star within a year, he’s taken the restaurant from strength to strength ~ there’s a constant and steady hum of diners in the glittering mirrored room.  I’m a little bit obsessed with meticulous attention to detail, and there’s nothing to fault here.

The glory of being in a fish restaurant is that I can literally eat my way around the menu, and where dishes do contain a meat element {such as veal cheek}, Tony replaces it with something {to my mind} more luscious, such as a plump and juicy langoustine.

Angler always delivers ~ do check out the dessert offerings, which are more beautiful and delicious each time we visit.
