When a dining spot can make you feel as if you have been spirited off to mid-century Manhattan (complete with live piano music and flickering candlelight), then it is one very special place.
Baby Grand might be in Charing Cross, but its heart is firmly in a nostalgic-soaked version of New York. Maybe that’s why it has been delighting diners for thirty years (it has also recently had a plush new makeover).
So if you want to send someone off to The Big Apple without the expense of an air ticket, then how about treating them to the Christmas gift of dinner for two at Baby Grand?
Chic piano bar dining
Baby Grand is a classic piano bar on Elmbank Gardens in Charing Cross, close to the King’s Theatre.
It has recently been totally revamped with a £250,000 refurbishment, making it much seeker and airier than before.
Dishes at Baby Grand have a distinctly continental flair that conjure up the classic melting pot cuisine of New York. With this Big Deal, two people can enjoy a starter and a main each.
If you fancy adding on a glass of Prosecco each as well, then choose option two.
This offer is available from noon to 5pm & 7.30pm to 9pm Sunday to Friday, until 28th February 2019.

Menus at Baby Grand can shift with the seasons, but here is a sample of what you can expect:

Stylish Christmas present

And if you want to make it extra special, why not throw in a glass of fizz each as well?
