THREE OTHER CITY SLICKERS

<strong>RHODES 24<br /></strong>Sitting at the top of Tower 42, Gary Rhodes has got himself a perfect spot in which to dazzle City high-flyers. Dishes are named after their bare ingredients, from lobster (glazed lobster omelette thermidor) to rabbit (potted, with potato and bacon salad) and are &ndash; on the whole &ndash; done well. 25 Old Broad St, EC2N 1HQ, tel: 020 7877 7703<br /><strong><br />BOUNDARY<br /></strong>Terence Conran&rsquo;s chic dungeon restaurant in Shoreditch, serving French classics from rotisserie veal and coq au vin to stranger things such as kale salad and obscure French egg dishes. It&rsquo;s a raging success though, due to that Conran way of combining style and substance with a big dose of je ne sais quoi. 3 Boundary St, E2 7JE, tel: 020 7729 1051<br /><br /><strong>L&rsquo;ANIMA</strong><strong><br /></strong>Seen by many as the best Italian in London, L&rsquo;Anima does sleek luxe like none other in the City &ndash; white leather, pearly bar, glass walls, heavenly snacks (the pork belly is a must), and a pricey menu make it an automatic winner. The wine list is unique and quirky, presided over by an almost maniacally dedicated sommelier. 1 Snowden St, EC2A 2DQ, tel: 020 7422 7000
