Square Meal Review of The Pearson Room ?

This Canary Wharf newcomer is a generous smorgasbord, with a good dollop of style on the side. The room itself, up above Canada Square, is laid-back yet smart, with a zinc-topped bar, mottled antiqued mirrors and slouchy leather sofas alongside the dining area. There’s also a very respectable collective CV behind the scenes, and it shows: co-owner/sommelier Sunaina Sethi (from Indian star Trishna in Marylebone) is responsible for the classy wine list, while mixologists from avant-garde Purl provide the dashing cocktails. Affable staff know their stuff and the all-day international menu works hard to offer something for everyone, from a breakfast sandwich of wild-boar bacon and sourdough to a more delicate evening offering of scallops with Jerusalem-artichoke purée, gremolata and spicy ’nduja, followed by a kirsch-cherry sundae that should be allowed to spread its joy at any hour.

  1. From the creators of Marlyebone favourite, Trishna and the ever popular Bubbledogs, The Pearson Room has burst onto the scene along with several new restaurants hoping to strike it lucky in the wharf. Two visits and I’m afraid I’m not convinced. I was an ardent fan of the Reebok restaurant, it’s predecessor, from my not so long ago working days in the wharf. When I heard it had been replaced and with what, I just had to make a trip back and drag a few equally curious ex-colleagues with me too. However, shoddy service, forgotten drinks orders and a surprisingly under seasoned and over tomatoey Smoked Mozzarella & Purple Aubergine Parmigiana made it clear as day for me. I don’t want the Pearson Room. I want the Reebok back. I’d like my trio of fish with spicy pearl barley cous cous back and I’d like the ever helpful manager Jon Flower back. Old habits die hard I guess, but I won’t let this put me off checking out the group’s latest venture; Gymkhana. A tribute to the old gentlemens clubs in colonial India. The bar is already touted to be a real find...
