Contract caterer ISS Eaton has opened a fine-dining restaurant inside the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) in Moorgate Place this month.

 

Formerly Esca, One Moorgate Place serves a modern European menu to members of the ICAEW as well as the public, following a six-figure refurbishment to the premises.

 

Bold, vibrant colours and textiles, plus artworks by Albert Irvin, Anthony Frost and Neil Canning, chosen by Sharon Gunn, director of Member Services of the ICAEW, adorn the restaurant that has been described as ‘contemporary, modern and inviting’.

 

Head chef Gavin Dunn has developed a lunchtime menu specifically designed to offer value for money, and includes dishes such as Thai Beef Salad with Green Chilli and Mint; Fresh Pea Risotto with Mint Yoghurt Ice Cream; Pan-Fried Sea Bass with Sweet Potato and Seafood Bisque; and Roast Suffolk Pork Belly with Mashed Potato and Madeira Jus.
 
Gunn said that as a membership body, it was vital that One Moorgate Place appealed to external markets.
 
“We have a superb opportunity to attract diners from inside our own membership base but also look to offer the facility elsewhere to enhance profitability and create a fine-dining model we can be proud to promote,” she said. “Within days we have seen a full-house in the restaurant and this is just the start of things to come.”

 

One Moorgate Place will be open for lunch from Monday to Friday, and offers opportunities for exclusive hire for breakfast and evening events.
