Lasdun Restaurant, Upper Ground, London, UK

Led by Jon Rotheram, Tom Harris and John Ogier (the team behind the critically acclaimed The Marksman in east London), this chic restaurant at National Theatre is known for its exceptional brasserie-style dishes and elegant decor that takes inspiration from National Theatre architect Denys Lasdun's modernist architecture.

Lasdun’s menu is brought to life through a classic yet contemporary lens, featuring seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and showcasing the very best of British produce.

Stand-out dishes include Cornish crab with salt lemon and a saffron bun, whole Cornish John Dory, a delicious chicken, wild garlic and leek pie to share, and for dessert brown butter and honey tart and vanilla set cream, a dish that has become a firm favourite with London's critics.

As well as offering a full a la carte menu, there's also of course a great pre-theatre menu (two courses £40, three courses £45).

Guests can also drop by for a drink at the beautiful dark marble bar, with a carefully curated selection of cocktails, wines, oysters and small plates to choose from. For special occasions, a sleek private dining room is available for groups of up to 12.
