Description
"Newish restaurant and bar catering to the City crowd, in the Chartered Accountants' Hall. Esca has a wine bar for light meals and the lovely main restaurant. The interior is stylish, light and modern with plenty of space between tables and the service is consistently good. Excellent private dining facilities for between 2 - 400 guests make this an ideal location for functions. What's cooking? Terrine of red mullet and monkfish with saffron dressing. Smoked haddock topped with Welsh rarebit on a beef, tomato and basil salad. Esca fishcake with creamed spinach and nuntua sauce. Braised lamb shank with vegetables and gratin dauphinois potatoes. Sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce."
