Once you’ve taken the glass lift to the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, head through Duck & Waffle’s funky bar to reach this lofty restaurant. Huge windows, bright decor and semi-circular leather seating add to the ‘cool’ vibe, and there’s no denying that dining with close-up views of the Gherkin and other City landmarks is a thrill – even if the food is hard-pressed to trump those spectacular vistas. Our picks of the sharing-concept menu include roasted octopus with chorizo and deep-fried capers, a wow dish of scallops served on Himalayan salt blocks with apple, lime and black truffle, and the ‘weird but oh-so-wonderful’ duck, waffle and maple syrup showpiece – although excessive sweetness overwhelms some dishes. Food is served round the clock for night owls and those who have missed the last train – even at weekends.
