You'll find Magdalen in the rather ugly municipal office buildings that once housed the Mayor of London and his team before they were moved up the street to a sexy glass building designed by Sir Norman Foster. Inside, however, you'll find rich claret walls, crisp linen tablecloths, and twinkling chandeliers—the perfect backdrop to the traditional British dishes. Nearby Borough Market provides plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and fish for former Anchor & Hope chef James Faulk's seasonal menu. Typical winter dishes include partridge terrine, clams, and rump of beef from the countryside of Herefordshire (as you'd expect, the summer menu includes more fish dishes and lighter preparations). The English puddings are delicious—it would be foolish to leave without trying the custard tart. Prices are affordable (starters from $11 and entrées from $19), and unlike at Anchor & Hope, you can book.

Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to 2:30 pm and 6:30 to 10:30 pm.
