You’ve probably walked past Sea Containers if you’ve strolled along the South Bank, but you just might not know it by name. It’s an immaculately shiny restaurant attached to the Mondrian Hotel, and it’s pretty enough that it feels occasion-worthy, but casual enough to not feel too try-hard. It’s good for breakfast and lunch meetups, and for group dinners in the evening when you’re rolling with a mixed crowd. Grab a seat by the window for pretty views of St Paul’s.
