St Christopher’s Place – London’s Hidden Gem!

Peckish whilst shopping? Visit St Christopher’s Place!

Thinking of heading down to Bond Street this weekend for some Christmas shopping? Well if so let me recommend a great place to stop for some pre or post shopping lunch / dinner : St Christopher’s Place.

Last weekend we visited Carluccios in St Christopher’s Place.

If you are not familiar with St Christopher’s Place, this could be because it is a little hidden gem, tucked in behind Bond Street off the main road!

St Christopher’s place is a gorgeous Al Fresco eating area perfect for hungry shoppers! However don’t let the Al Fresco side of dining put you off as there is plenty of room inside the restaurants or tucked under lovely patio warmers!

Now the festive season is upon us St Christopher’s Place is beautifully decorated and if you stop to take a look above the entrance (a small alleyway off Bond Street!) you will spot a beautiful glistening Angel.

We stopped in Carluccios out of all the other restaurants simply because of the gorgeous window display! (We even took home a beautifully boxed panettone!)

We dined on the ‘Menu Fisso’ – the fixed price menu. We chose 2 courses for £10.95 which for central London dining is a bit of a bargain.

The atmosphere was great, the staff were really friendly and the food was simply amazing! We were in Italian heaven! I can recommend both the ‘Penne Alla Luganica’ and the ‘Milanese Di Pollo’.

We decided to split some Gelato for dessert and this was beautiful and full of flavour.

We finished with after dinner coffees and left with our tummy’s full and our shopping bags piled even higher after stopping to look at their festive section.

If Italian isn’t for you however there are plenty of other places in St Christopher’s Place that might take your fancy too 🙂
