Review on Duck & Waffle
The Duck & Waffle is loftily perched on the 40th floor of the skyscraper Heron Tower designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, at 755 feet tall its the third tallest building in London after the Shard and One Canary Square. Sibling to Sushi Samba located a floor below, the restaurant has a contemporary and innovative design, with its floor to ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the City and iconic London landmarks in all its splendour.
Heading the kitchen is Daniel Doherty who earned his culinary stripes at The Old Brewery at the Royal Naval College in Greenwich, The Empress in Victoria Park, and The Ambassador on Exmouth Market. It is emphatically an all-day venue, kicking off with breakfast, moving through to brunch, lunch, dinner and late night menus. Doherty has devised an inventive menu inspired by European and British influences using seasonal ingredients, with diners encouraged to choose a selection of small plates. Typical dishes showcasing Doherty's creativity are thinly sliced pig's head, olive oil and Amalfi lemon, bacon wrapped dates, Linguiça sausage served with dandelion salad or their signature dish which is where the restaurant gets its name, duck leg with fried duck egg, waffle and mustard maple syrup.
There is a bar with equally spectacular views offering a finely crafted cocktail menu together with a well considered wine list to complement the food.
