Up on the 24th floor of Tower 42, the setting is a glamorous contemporary art deco-inspired space with rosewood panelling, chrome, brass and smoked glass, and a couple of Warhols on the walls, all set against the lights of the Gherkin, the Cheesegrater and the Shard in the wraparound skyscape. The food is equally spectacular – inventive, detailed and bursting with entertaining combinations of taste and texture – courtesy of Paul Walsh, who brings authority and innovative impetus to the house style of classically founded modern European cooking, as seen in openers such as of Brixham crab teamed with pickled kohlrabi, nashi pear, coriander and pink grapefruit. Alternatively, you might kick off with pasta or risotto, perhaps wild garlic risotto with braised morels and aged parmesan, then move on to line-caught cod with octopus carpaccio, ratatouille and squid ink crisp, or rabbit saddle with Parma ham, chanterelles, spelt and black garlic. To finish, try banana soufflé with banana tartare and peanut ice cream, or two might sign up for apple tarte Tatin with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
