Frontline has a clubby, relaxed atmosphere, not surprising when you appreciate that the restaurant sits below a leading club of war reporters dedicated to highlighting global causes and crises.

This is one of those restaurants that I've passed by a million and one times but have never even thought to go into nor try out.

The restaurant is equally worth seeing if you like well presented, fancy meals with white linens and attentive service. And I do.
