Squaremeal Review of Searcys | The Gherkin ?

The restaurant and top floor bar is currently open to Square Meal readers every lunchtime and Friday evening, until the end of November. Lunch set menus will range from £30-45, Friday evenings £45-55. Quote 'Square Meal' when booking.

Restaurants in tall buildings are no longer the novelty they once were, but the 39th-floor dining room within the Gherkin still has an air of exclusivity – you can only eat here if you’re a member, or know somebody who is. You also get the chance to dine in what is still London’s most loved skyscraper, with those iconic diamond-shaped glass panes giving a strong sense of place and the Apprentice atmosphere reaching its zenith in the rooftop cocktail bar. The menu is more creative than the corporate surroundings might suggest: expect cockles with bread velouté or halibut with clams, yuzu and sea vegetables, as well as trusty expense-account pleasers such as a knockout starter of foie gras with macadamia nuts and figs, or mighty côte de veau to share. Look beyond Burgundy and Bordeaux and there’s a decent smattering of sub-£40 drinking too.

    I have often wondered what it would be like to visit The Gherkin (after taking multiple shots with it in the background from the Heron Tower), so what better opportunity to experience it during the summer when it was transformed into a luxurious and idyllic Moroccan Sky Riad - a pop-up that took inspiration from Le Fondouk and Le Comptoir Darna restaurants in Marrakech.
    Normally a strictly-operated private members' bar, Searcy's at the top in the glass domed roof of the iconic Gherkin have never opened to the public, so this was a chance to gain exclusive access to this impressive and breathtaking space, where...
