Fine Dining In East London
|| In terms of fine dining
East London can offer you gourmet cuisine from some
of the Uk’s top chefs without the West End pretension
– simply good food without the ego.
Designer, retailer and restaurateur Sir Terrance
Conran has added an east London haunt to his
ever-growing empire of international establishments. Plateau [map] is a calm oasis of glass and
chrome above the bustle of Canary Wharf. And the menu
of this £2 million venture boasts grouse, venison
and suckling pig and a comprehensive wine list.
If fish is the favourite of the day then you could enjoy
it with a large helping of London views at The Aquarium
[map] . Located at St Katherine’s Dock E1, this modern
waterfront eatery is predominately a seafood restaurant
but does offer meat dishes as part of their BBQ menu.
While waterfront dining may be the ultimate way to enjoy
seafood, there is one way you can get closer to the action
and that’s by dining on the water. Lightship
Ten [map] is a restaurant housed in the oldest lightship in the
world. Lovingly restored to create an atmospheric eating
environment, here you can enjoy an eclectic range of cuisine
as you gently rock to the relaxed atmosphere.
Elegance and exquisite dining combine at Quadrato [map],
found at east London’s only five star hotel, the Four Seasons [map]. This is not only considered to be
one the finest Italian restaurants north of the Thames
but one of the best eateries in London.
St John Bread and Wine [map] is the east side sibling to the trendy St John [map] restaurant in Clerkenwell. With all the contemporary style
of its older brother but without an understated menu which
appeals to hungry bellies.
Fusing Japanese and Peruvian flavours Ubon [map] (by Nobu) is another establishment with a West End sibling.
Celebrities flock to Nobu for its trendy minimalism much
of which Ubon has retained with the addition of floor
to ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the Thames.
