Set within a glossy office and sports club complex in the heart of brightly-lit Canary Wharf, The Pearson Room could easily fool you into thinking that you were actually in Manhattan. Bare brick walls, low-hanging lights and stylishly shelved walls evoke loft conversion chic, while a menu of burgers, salt beef sandwiches, wings and steaks is downtown cool. We found veal and beef bone marrow meatballs richly flavoured yet delicately textured, though a seafood ‘chowder’ more of a thin and tasteless soup. The kitchen certainly knows what it’s doing with the burgers, though: a classic cheese and bacon number boasts a juicy, well-seasoned patty, generous toppings and a bun that can stand up to the pressure. A New York-style cheesecake or deep fried apple pie are appropriately American and decidedly decadent end notes. Swift and friendly service and a selection of sturdy cocktails make this smart-casual financial district restaurant one to bank on.
