Fenchurch Restaurant 22

Squaremeal Review of Fenchurch Restaurant ?

Atop the Walkie Talkie building (and a floor above Darwin Brasserie), Fenchurch is a visual treat. Once you’ve made it past the airport-style security and up a lightning-quick lift, you’re greeted by professional, smiley staff and a backdrop of plush grey booths and window-side tables. Chef Daniel Fletcher (ex-The Square) oversees the kitchen, which produces a stream of high-spec European dishes using quality British ingredients. On our visit, we enjoyed a near-perfect, eight-course tasting menu which comes with an array of well-matched wines. Highlights included a light dish of Devon crab heaped on toast, upon a bed of soft-boiled asparagus and peppered with seasonal herbs. We also loved our main, featuring tender cuts of lamb served with crunchy rainbow chard, ewe’s cheese and salsify. While our dessert of hot-and-cold Guanaja chocolate with milk ice cream was perfectly nice, however, it was a bit vanilla (pardon the pun). If you don’t fancy wine, there’s an extensive list of cocktails to choose from, including the delicious Mediterranean Spice: gin, basil, pink peppercorn shrub and crème de cassis. Sky-high dining doesn’t come cheap and Sushisamba and Duck & Waffle both boast better, view-centric layouts, but Fenchurch is still worth the trip for a touch of London luxury.

Full of flavour

by   platinum reviewer (82)

Aug 2016

Our entrance was speedy, straight past the queues of sightseers, up the lift, and out into a loud and lively sky garden floor, complete with Friday night parties and live band. Up two more flights of stairs for drinks on the high level terrace, with time to absorb the swimming-pool style acoustics echoing off the glass roof and walls. Into the restaurant for dinner, and suddenly all was relaxed and calm. A choice of good breads and butter started us off, then the chilled heritage tomato salad...

View + food = winning formula

by   platinum reviewer (203)

Mar 2016

Editor's pick Tall buildings seem all the rage in London these days and, if you have an iconic landmark, then why not put a restaurant in there too? Too often, however, the complaint can be levelled at such venues that customers just end up paying for the view or the ‘experience’ and the food becomes an after-thought. At Fenchurch though (on level 37 of the ‘Walkie Talkie’), my comrade and I were impressed from beginning to end. This is more than just a good view; it is a restaurant with serious ambitions to...

    Cosi.Eats.London :: Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch Street | Cosi.Eats.London

    One chilling walk from the tube and an MI5 style security check later and I was in the lift shooting up towards the Walkie-Talkie’s infamous Sky Garden. The doors opened, I turned left and there it was – that notorious view. This ‘glasshouse’ offers spectacular 360 degree views of our city, through stunning yet daunting glass panes which span across the venue and comfortably house lusciously groomed greenery, two restaurants and a minimalist, sleek bar – the perfect place to begin an evening. Making my way over to meet my friend, I couldn’t help feeling that there was surprisingly a huge amount of intimacy within...

    Kavey Eats :: Kavey Eats: Sky High Dining at Fenchurch Restaurant

    The Sky Garden is one of the latest ways to enjoy a birds eye view of London. And it’s free!

    Unlike some of the other tall buildings of London, it’s not a gherkin-shaped office block with no public access nor a soaring pay-to-ascend tourist attraction. You don’t even have to book a table for dinner and drinks – you are welcome to enjoy the terrace and garden area completely free, as long as you book in advance.

    The Sky Garden is on the 35th floor of the building most commonly referred to as the Walkie Talkie, though personally I think it more closely resembles an old-school mobile phone.
