Food and drink
I have to admit to feeling a little bit frustrated with 60; it has a very good reputation for refined modern British cooking and with a tiny bit more effort, the food could really live up to this. Nevertheless, there are some great ideas here and some of them are executed well.
The deep-fried jam sandwich with Carnation milk ice cream is a house special, a take on the conny-onny butty of chef and co-proprietor Gary Manning's childhood.
Very business-friendly at lunchtime and worth dressing up for in the evening.
Considerate - they brought me a stack of magazines when I last ate there alone - but not always strong on knowledge of the food itself. If I had any allergies, I'd ask to see the chef to discuss them properly.
Lovely Hope Street: always a winner.
Seasonal menus offer good value, especially as there's often a half-bottle of wine thrown in. A main course is around £20 in the evening.
The same group also owns Host and The Quarter, both just over the road.
