High-flying cooking in a high-rise city tower

Located on the 24th floor of the old NatWest Tower, this sky-high restaurant offers panoramic London skyline views that befits one of the capital's most influential chef-patrons. Jason Atherton has enjoyed huge success with the likes of Pollen Street Social and Social Eating House and this City outpost delivers similarly top-drawer contemporary food. A sleek art deco look of golds and blacks, combined with jaw-dropping views from floor-to-ceiling windows adds a James Bond-style grandeur, as does the bar with its city slicker-friendly cocktails and hearty bar snacks. Executive Chef Paul Walsh extracts maximum flavour from humble ingredients and the well-presented, globally-influenced dishes have roots firmly planted in the classics. Try an opener of slow-cooked Tidenham duck with a harmonious match of amarena cherries, pistachio yogurt and hints of five spice and dried vinegar. Those searching for more international flavours can look to a main of Cornish line-caught cod and squid teamed with spicy ponzu, bok choy, miso aïoli and seaweed or Middle White pork loin and belly served with violet artichoke, shallots and black onion crackling. The technical prowess continues with a light and airy Kentish morello cherry soufflé with cherry jam and chocolate ice cream. The lively, interesting wine list offers plenty of diversity.
