Squaremeal Review of Duck & Waffle ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016For those constantly seeking the 'next big thing', Duck & Waffle's 40th-floor bar frequently hits new highs with its astounding views, (almost) 24/7 opening times and fashion-forward philosophy. Put that down to Richard Woods (aka The Cocktail Guy), who is lauded as the drinks industry's answer to Heston Blumenthal and currently oversees the bar at Duck & Waffle's conjoined sibling Sushisamba – as well as acting as head honcho here. There's plenty of weird stuff on offer from Woods' inside-out bar/experimental lab, with a seasonally evolving list taking in everything from an olive oil, dark chocolate and blue cheese Martini to a lightly carbonated cold brew of yellow Chartreuse, cocoa nib, distilled pineapple and coriander. Meanwhile, a gin and yellow-tomato consommé with vine-leaf infusion isn't the sort of Bloody Mary manqué served at your local Dog & Duck.

    Sophie Loves Food :: Sophie Loves Food: Everyday Yogurt Lovers & Recent Favourites

    When my alarm started sounding at 06:30am on a day off, I did doubt the table I'd booked a few weeks before. Yes, I had to book weeks in advance and yes, the only booking I could get was 08:15am. But, eating breakfast 230m in the clouds at Duck & Waffle sure is an experience...

    Emma Rose Tully :: Review: Duck & Waffle | Daydreamer

    Unlike my recent trip to Barnyard where I successfully made it through the doors of a restaurant within a month of it opening, Duck & Waffle has been on my to-visit list for about 680 days. Located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in the City of London, Duck & Waffle made it’s debut to the London restaurant scene in the summer of 2012 (about 680 days ago). With 24/7 opening hours and magnificent views of the London skyline, Duck & Waffle is undoubtedly on the to-do list of many visitors to the city.

    Brunch is only served on Saturday and Sundays, which means it can get booked up quickly. You’re only able...

    Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes :: Gluten Free Brunch at Duck and WaffleAround the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes

    All the cool kids seem to be having brunch at Duck and Waffle at the moment and like a good little sheep that I am, I decided that it was time to join them and try out their gluten free brunch offerings.

    Now I’m not good with heights so luckily the lovely bloggers I was brunching with (Emma, Kara, Sam and Mina) were waiting for me in the lobby to take the scary ride up to the 40th floor which is extremely quick (but it’s a VERY long ride if you hate heights; I felt weak in the knees when we got to the top)...

    Half a Slice of Toast :: Half a Slice of Toast | Duck and Waffle

    For those who don’t know, Duck and Waffle is located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower and has stunning views of London. They make the most of the views with floor to ceiling windows and a carefully arranged seating plan to ensure all diners can enjoy it. The first time I visited Duck and Waffle was on a weekday lunch, so luckily there was no need to book, and I was so impressed, I decided to treat my best friend to dinner here for his birthday. Although all seats have a view, of course everyone hopes to be right next to the window which luckily we were. The views really are quite spectacular so understandably...

    The Square 8211; Sam The Food Fan :: Duck & Waffle - Breakfast | Sam The Food Fan

    The Better Half (TBH) and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary this week and when bestie suggested we get together for breakfast at Duck & Waffle, we thought this would be the perfect occasion for it. The restaurant is located on the 40th floor of Heron Tower in the City of London, with sweeping views across the London skyline and food that matches the amazing outlook. Three years after opening it is still extremely popular, so with our anniversary being on a Tuesday, we stood a far better chance of getting a table at a decent hour (I say decent hour, but we still had to catch our usual train that takes us to...

    Her Favourite Food :: Her Favourite Food: Duck & Waffle at 4am

    It seems that London is a city that doesn’t sleep, but instead flocks to Duck & Waffle in its masses at 4am in the morning.

    I should have known from the struggle it was to find a table for a group of people at the dead of night that this wasn’t going to be a quite meal. Instead when the glass elevator had whooshed us up to Heron Tower's 40th floor, we walked into a bar and restaurant which was pumping high volume electro tunes into a space which was absolutely packed with people.

    Yet they were not ordinary people who had just finished a night out and were in search for something slightly more appetising...

    Food Expectations :: Food Expectations: Duck and Waffle Brunch Review

    We had been to Duck and Waffle a while back for dinner and had a delicious meal. But I kept hearing from friends that brunch was the best meal, so when my friends Robert and Trevor told me they were visiting London from NY, I booked a table.
    The restaurant is fun and is one of the few “restaurants with a view” that actually delivers when it comes to the food. A lot of them charge a fortune because of the setting but the food disappoints. Not in this case!

    Sam Stewart Etc :: Duck and Rice London Review - SamStewartEtc

    Duck & Rice is Alan Yau’s new restaurant with a Chinese Pub concept in Soho. Alan Yau owns a ton of restaurants including Hakkasan, Busaba Eat Thai and Yauatcha, which is right next door to Duck & Rice. The pub concept has nothing to do with the food and just relates to the décor somehow, and the fact that they have a huge tank of Pilsner at the entrance of the ground floor, which is also their bar area.

    The main restaurant is upstairs and it has a fine vibe, but nothing overly special. The menu is huge and has everything one can imagine, ranging from snacks to dim sum, curry, duck and many more things.

    Connie Consumes :: Duck & Waffle, The City | Connie Consumes

    Sitting on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, Duck & Waffle is the UK’s highest restaurant so it is hardly surprising that it gets booked as much for the view as it does for the food. The menu itself is often praised and best described as eclectic and creative, but I’ve frequently wondered whether it’s actually any good or if diners are swept up in the fun and frivolity of it all to really care? So on the hottest day of the year so far, we went along to find out!

    I can’t deny it, the view was stunning and so was the restaurant. The bar area is open and vibrant, the dining room has a more luxurious feel, both...

    SilverSpoon London :: Dining at Altitude: Duck & Waffle - One of London's Favourite Restaurants

    Duck & Waffle is quite possibly one of the most blogged about restaurants in London. With a massive 114 blog posts on Urban Spoon, Dan Doherty's restaurant based in the Heron Tower is clearly the talk of the town. But there's a reason for that...it's brilliant...perhaps one of my favourite restaurants in London. I thought I'd add to the list with my own blog post and show you why Duck & Waffle is basically restaurant perfection.

    Even the lift journey has become iconic....

    #FatInside :: #FatInside: Duck and Waffle

    A recent visit to Duck and Waffle brought back the fond memories of visiting the restaurant for my 22nd Birthday. The tallest restaurant in London boasts spectacular views of the city and if you're blessed with a table overlooking 'The Gherkin' you're in for a treat. The restaurant and bar offer a chic design and the intimate feeling in the restaurant makes for a perfect evening.

    angloyankophile :: angloyankophile: Duck, Waffle, And Vertigo at Duck & Waffle, Heron Tower

    One year ago yesterday, John and I eloped to Wales with only our photographer and her fiance as witnesses. As we said our vows in the Conwy city hall and took pictures later on the Llandudno pier, I remember thinking that it was the happiest day of my life.

    To celebrate this occasion, John took me out for brunch on Sunday at a surprise location - I couldn't have imagined that we'd be heading to Duck & Waffle, on the 40th floor of Heron Tower. Having only been to the Shard a few weeks ago, we'd been spoiled by views of London from high up, and yesterday was no exception, particularly as the weather was just....

    Review of Blacklock, Soho :: Dalton Banks Duck and Waffle Liverpool Street

    Duck & Waffle has been on my Must Eat list for far too long! I follow Dan Doherty on Instagram and always love the look of his creations in the kitchen. Why has it taken me this long to sample the fine food at Duck & Waffle? I never seem to be organised enough to book a table far enough in advance! Well, that finally changed when, as the good wife that I am, booked a table for my husbands birthday two whole months in advance. Wife points to me!

    I booked a table for 8pm on a Saturday night and as I had heard many good things about the cocktails on offer from the bar we decided to get there a little...
