A Historical Dinner in The City at 1 Lombard Street

Last week The Nth Degree Club hosted an amazingly historic dining experience at 1 Lombard Street. Steeped in banking history, the famous City fine dining restaurant dates back to 1776 and sits right next to the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London. The Nth Degree Club took over the private dining room for a decadent dining experience complete with drinks reception and three course meal.

The dining experience began with a fabulously historical introduction to the Grade II listed venue by General Manager Soren Jessen. Soren is a former banker himself and opened the establishment back in 1998. He spoke so passionately about 1 Lombard Street and reminded us all of just how many huge business deals will have been made in the building.

Each course was exquisite in it’s own way, and our members even commented on how wonderful the bread was. Infused with pepper and olive oil, it was clear that everything had been made from scratch, with the greatest of care.  The flavoursome lentils complimented the monkfish perfectly and the dessert was a truly indulgent end to a fabulous meal.

With four bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge, dining room, 2 balconies, 3 bathrooms and a reception hall, the Mayfair Penthouse was more than large enough for our party of 14. We began with a champagne drinks reception in the lounge and our Nth Degree members took themselves for a little snoop around the whole penthouse apartment. Our wonderful waiting staff used the kitchen as a base to serve the drinks.
