If you’re meeting out-of-town friends at Tate Modern and want to grab dinner afterwards, wander over to Hixter, where you can be assured of a good meal (things like grilled steaks and chicken) while your mates gawp at the plush decor and things on the menu like ‘De Beauvoir smoked salmon’. The bar’s also excellent and it’s an easy way to transition over into drinks if you’re feeling strong. It’s also a good spot for impressing people like your new colleagues without trying too hard.
