Squaremeal Review of Oblix at The Shard ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016Walking through Oblix's bustling open kitchen to get to our table, we couldn't help but be beguiled by the view – the 32nd floor of the Shard certainly makes for a mightily impressive rendezvous, manned by impeccably dressed staff who attend to City suits and international jet-setters with great charm and style. New chef Marcus Eaves (formerly of Pied à Terre) is now at the stoves, although the menu hasn't changed much since his arrival in September 2015. Perky starters such as fried octopus with avocado and grapefruit or soft-shell crab with kimchi, daikon and truffle-heavy flatbread all hit the spot, while mains cover everything from crisp, tender lamb chops cooked on the searing heat of the Josper grill with harissa and yoghurt on the side to delicate whole sea bass with fennel and olives. For pud, try the pecan and chocolate bar or the quirky coconut semifreddo with basil sorbet. It might be pricey, but with an extensive wine list to hand, plus live music and decent cocktails in the bar, you could well be tempted to "sit for hours watching London go by".

Oblix now offers an excellent brunch menu. Start with small bites from the deli, including a house sausage roll and bruschetta, before moving on to mains of steak with hash brown and lobster with hand cut chips. Finish with as many trips to the dessert station as you’d like; be sure to try the light and fluffy vanilla cheesecake and the drool-worthy flourless chocolate cake. Including a glass of champagne, this brunch is a great way to spend your afternoon.
