Named for its lofty location 14 floors above street level, this new high-rise restaurant promises spectacular views of the London skyline, as well as a modern British menu designed by former executive chef of Bar Boulud, Thomas Piat.
Located in the heart of the City, this latest venture from D&D (the unstoppable restaurant group behind Blueprint Cafe, 100 Wardour Street, Coq d’Argent and Le Pont de la Tour, to name but a few) takes its interiors inspiration from the public roof garden crowning the new office building, along with English terraces, roof gardens and courtyards more generally.
This translates to a lush central canopy of evergreen plants and seasonal climbers, plus mature trees, shrubs and several large pergolas dotted around the place in what appears to be a determined bid to rival the top-spot garden upstairs.
Award-winning interior designers Robert Angell Design International needn’t fret too much though, since 14 Hills comes with a distinct advantage over the roof garden: its kitchen. Piat’s all-day menu includes a range of modern British dishes cooked with French flair, from business breakfasts right through to leisurely dinners spent enjoying the views of some of the capital’s most eye-catching landmarks (though City workers in a rush on weekdays will be glad of the fast-serve deli counter).
Those looking for beautiful vistas on weekends are catered for too, thanks to Saturday brunch and Sunday roast menus, the contents of which have yet to be shared.
14 Hills isn’t just a dining destination though, thanks to the bar which puts cocktails at the fore. The extensive selection will include classics, signature serves and modern interpretations of old favourites, many of which will be crafted from in-house ingredients, while wine enthusiasts can choose from a list of interesting wines curated by the on-hand sommeliers.
