Review on Oxo Tower
Take the express lift to the eighth-floor of the red-brick Oxo building, which rises like a beacon above urban wastelands on the South Bank of the Thames. This is London – another city that never sleeps – so you can drink in the spectacular views by day or night.
The food has eclectic overtones, quickly veering off into the realms of lentil soup with wood pigeon samosa, lobster in tempura batter with daikon and wasabi dressing, and fillet of sea bass with fondant potato and a jalapeño fritter. There are plenty of Anglo-European marriages, too – witness Shetland cod with white beans and Alsace bacon or roast pheasant with a boudin, cranberry relish and Brussels sprout purée.
Elsewhere, expect salmon rillettes with caviar-garnished leek terrine and vanilla cream, Barbary duck paired with truffled cabbage purée, foie gras and apple, plus seasonal desserts such as mulled wine pear with pistachio frangipane or chocolate and chestnut roulade with dark chocolate sorbet. The wine list is a dazzler, with a vast selection of house wines opening the show and a 'big list' featuring hundreds of classy vintages.
