SquareMeal Review of
One Canada Square
For 20 years, One Canada Square was the tallest skyscraper in London – the pyramid atop serving as Docklands' defining landmark. Sadly, you can only eat at the base of this obelisk, in the marble and leather-clad Gotham-like lobby. Owned by brothers Ed and Tom Martin, better known for their stylish gastropubs in the City, the bar here is a big after-work draw, with a terrific selection of beers, cocktails and wines by the glass. The a la carte offers a greater choice ranging from Hampshire trout, sauteed gnocchi, sprouting broccoli, garlic pesto to Flourless lemon and almond cake, candied kumquats, lemon sorbet. This place is also "perfect for business breakfast", while weekend brunch is "great value" and a "nice treat" with the bonus of a live piano player.
