Helix at The Gherkin

30 St Mary Axe , London, EC3A 8EP

SquareMeal Review of Helix at The Gherkin

OPENS 13 JULY 2018

Restaurants in skyscrapers are no longer the novelty they once were, but the dining room on floor 39 of the Gherkin was one of the first to do it in the capital, and the experience still delivers. One of London’s best-loved venues, dining here means witnessing first-hand those iconic diamond-shaped glass panes which give a strong sense of place, while The Apprentice vibes reach fever pitch in the Iris cocktail bar, positioned right within the tip of the building. Seasonal and focusing on British produce, highlights from the food menu include Dorset crab served with asparagus, grapefruit, soy and sesame, and Rhug Estate Welsh lamb with bell peppers, aubergine, courgette and pine nuts. The wine list concentrates on the New World and, unsurprisingly given that view, there’s plenty of fizz to choose from.
