The latest in the culinary colonisation of Europe's tallest building is the second entry from David Yeo's Aqua restaurant group. Following hot on the heels of Hutong, Aqua London will be his first foray into Modern British cuisine, and boy what a place to do it! Located on the 31st floor, the bar at Aqua London is situated in an atrium that rises two storeys, with immense windows letting in the London landscape and an abundance of natural light. Cocktails take cues from classic English dishes, with options like the Devonshire Cream Cup, crafted from Tanqueray, Aperol, crème de fraise, lemon curd, tarragon balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and earl grey tea. The all-day restaurant hinges on contemporary British cuisine and patriotic provenance. The dining room boasts a wealth of crushed velvet and deep booths, perfect for preserving privacy, as well as window-side seating that allows the cityscape to do the heavy lifting. This is the perfect setting from which to enjoy starters like handcut rose country beef, a delicious English take on steak tartare, or mains like pork belly with buckwheat pancake, fruit chutney, black pudding and tomato.
