The ETM group have launched their newest bar and restaurant, right at the bottom of Canary Wharf’s biggest and most recognisable tower.
On the menu there is plenty of British-sourced meats and seafood fresh from Billingsgate Market Ã¢â‚¬â€œ just a few hundred metres from the kitchen door Ã¢â‚¬â€œ presented in the form of ceviche, carpaccio and tartare dishes. Vegetarians can also opt for the Allotment dish that takes garden vegetables and keeps them garden fresh using’olive soil’.
For mains, try the fish – a scallop and shrimp burger with kimchee and fries or the Torbay wild bass with squid ink risotto, lemon and parsley dressing. If you like a pie, try your luck with the daily changing One Canada Square pie; Shorthorn steaks; Herdwick lamb with confit leg boulangÃƒÂ¨re potatoes, rosemary curd, crosnes and lamb jus. Game is sourced from a select number of gamekeepers and riflemen as well as Yorkshire Game Company, with choices including salt-baked Yorkshire red grouse with black figs and foie gras, topped with a grating of bitter chocolate.
Sweet toothed patrons can have a go on the blackberry cannoli and ricotta; pineapple soufflÃƒÂ© with coconut sorbet; and a lime fondant with jellied cubes of rosewater and pomegranate.
If you’re out and about in London often, you’ll have no doubt come across a restaurant using tablets for menus/drinks/just about anything. One Canada Square have followed suit with their high-tech wine list, which allows customers to scroll through sommelier suggestions, view full descriptions of both familiar and unfamiliar varieties, available both by the bottle and the glass thanks to the restaurant’s Enomatic wine dispenser.
For Whiskey fans, One Canada Square boasts a 46-strong range of whiskies from around the world that includes American bourbons and ryes, Irish whiskeys and Japanese malts as well as varieties from the best Scottish distilleries. Fine and rare include a 25-year old Yamazaki aged in the finest sherry casks and a superb second edition of Balblair 1975 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a rich whisky aged largely in American oak casks.
One Canada Square is open now.
