Square Meal Review of One Canada Square ?

At the base of Canary Wharf’s most prestigious address, this art deco-inspired all-dayer feels well-established, despite being little over a year old. Lofty green-marble pillars and acres of glass and steel create a big-city statement, softened by leather seating and wooden flooring. It’s the brainchild of Tom and Ed Martin, famed for their classy updates of traditional pubs. The elegant bar separates drinkers and diners, and a buzzing mezzanine attracts private parties. The menu now has more of a modern brasserie feel, with the likes of piquant crab and chilli linguine, chicken schnitzel jazzed up with lemon and caper dressing, and a daily changing pie. There are grilled steaks, too, and pear and almond tart for pud. Cocktails, Champagne breakfasts, an early-evening prix fixe, and Saturday’s bottomless brunch (£40 for two courses and free-flowing selected drinks) provide yet more enticements. Like some punters, the baby-grand piano gets quietly hammered at weekends.

  1. The iconic One Canada Square building in Canary Wharf will be receiving a new, modern European restaurant and cocktail bar, located in the stylish lobby, as of September 2013. The forthcoming venue will also be named One Canada Square, as a nod to the famous 800ft, 50-storey building which it will be based in.

    This new addition to the former tallest building in Europe will contain a 30-cover bar and 100-cover restaurant with a mezzanine floor. It is the vision of Tom and Ed Martin of the award-winning ETM Group, who also opened The Botanist restaurant and bar on Sloane Square, and have several other venues...

    The Blog About Nothing... in London! :: Canary Brunch

    Hey! So what's the deal with brunch? I mean that if it's a combination of breakfast and lunch, how comes there's no lupper or no linnerJeannie (Seinfeld episode “The Invitations”)The other day I got an invitation to try the brunch menu of One Canada Square. A lovely event ran by the ETM group where a nice group of food bloggers had the chance to tweet up their experience. The place is a refined, spacious, and traditional European restaurant and cocktail bar. The David Collins Studio designed the place, and the kitchen is in charge of chef Jamie Dobbin. Soft Shelf CrabWe got a nice selection of dishes and also...

  1. One Canada Square is the original Canary Wharf tower, and still the tallest of the bunch there, with the winking light on top of the building visible for miles around. I have fond memories of working in the building, and always found the vast, marble-clad lobby to be impressive, rather than soulless, as some seem to find it. The fact that one can imagine the climactic “lobby scene” from the Matrix unfolding there merely enhances its impressiveness. Like it or not, it is vast anyway, and ETM Group (owners of leading London gastropubs such as the Gun) have managed to squeeze in a sizeable restaurant and bar into one...

  1. Work lunches can always be a challenge. You go as a large group (which means you inevitably get stuck with a limited menu) and then there is the dilemma of ordering something rich and interesting (and then drifting off to sleep in a food coma) or going for the simple sandwich or salad option. After some research, we settled on One Canada Square for our team lunch as the menu was reasonably diverse and they had space. Overall, the experience was better than I expected as they had our table set up and ready to go when we arrived and even agreed to let us order from the full menu. The décor and setting is fairly comfortable...

  1. Anything sweet always catches my eye, and I got a little excited when I saw that One Canada Square was doing a special Ice Cream for Breakfast Day menu.
    They were also doing their Bottomless Brunch Menu that day which obviously tempted the both of us to go for the two course option, hence enabling us to save space for dessert later on.

    I don't usually drink much during the day, but it was a weekend after all...and I just could not resist having the raspberry bellinis...
