<strong>ST PANCRAS GRAND</strong><br />This high-profile effort from Searcy&rsquo;s &ndash; designed by interiors guru du jour Martin Brudnizky &ndash; is just the place to eat the likes of potted salmon, stew and duck under the eye of a large clock and bulbous, elegant lamps. The soft purr of the Eurostar arriving and leaving is a wonderful aid to digestion. St Pancras Grand, Upper Concourse, Euston Road, NW1 9QP. Tel: 020 870 9900<br /><br /><strong>CAMINO</strong><br />Part Spanish restaurant with tapas, chargrilled meat and fish, and part giggy bar, this a very popular venue indeed (though some might find it a bit of a mishmash). Whether you&rsquo;re up for churros and coffee in the morning or top-drawer sirloin at night, or just a place to knock back sangria in style, this is your place. Regent Quarter, 3 Varnishers Yard, London, N1 9FD. Tel: 020 7841 7330<br /><br /><strong>ACORN HOUSE</strong><br />This much-lauded combination of the eco-friendly and the glamorous serves lovely seasonal food such as char-grilled mackerel with gooseberries and flourless chocolate and thyme cake. It&rsquo;s a windowy, spacious room and equally perfect for a client meeting or a first date &ndash; and its green credentials can&rsquo;t fail to impress. 69 Swinton St, WC1X 9NT. Tel: 020 78121842
