Review on Tom's Kitchen

Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens launched his Tom's Kitchen brand in 2006 and now has branches in Chelsea, Somerset House, Canary Wharf and in August 2014 opened his fourth restaurant in St Katherine Dock. Set in the newly developed Commodity Quay, steps away from the Tower of London, it has an enviable waterside location overlooking the luxury yachts in Central London's only marina. The light and airy restaurant has floor to ceiling windows to take in the views, with an industrial chic décor featuring exposed brick walls displaying pictures of the kitchen's suppliers. Adjacent to the main restaurant is Tom's Kitchen Deli, which offers an array of home made seasonal sandwiches, soups, hotpots and salads to takeaway.

The food has strong British and European overtones, with the kitchen making excellent use of seasonal ingredients from impeccable British suppliers. On offer there might be chicken liver and foie gras parfait, pea mousse, peas, chutney and brioche or fish fans will enjoy the spicy crab cake served with a red pepper salsa. Main courses take in a classic beer battered pollock and chips, crushed peas, tartare sauce and lemon or rabbit, squid, chorizo and mashed potato. To finish there's Queen of puddings, brioche custard, raspberries and meringue or chocolate and peanut butter fondant paired with caramel ice cream.

To accompany the menu there's a delicious selection of cocktails on offer, together with an excellent wine list and local craft beers from Whitstable Bay and Three Daggers Brewery. At weekends, the place brings in the crowds with its popular Brunch menu.
