If the views over the London skyline at Duck & Waflle weren’t enough for you to visit then we’d hope the wasabi, apple and celery bellini would surely lure you up this high. The added bonus to it being located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tour is that Duck & Waffle offers the rather unique promise of being open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so you just need to find time in your busy schedule to visit although we can’t think of an excuse not to visit this gem of a restaurant with skyline views across London.
Being open 24 hours a day means their menu seems to be around food dedicated to those alcohol-induced diners. Daniel Doherty’s imaginative dishes feature small plates with a modern Spanish twist offer endless munching options till the wee hours. Spicy ox cheek doughnuts, roasted octopus, fillet of angus beef carpaccio and the pièce de résistance; the foie gras crème brûlée. But the early hours / breakfast options are a dream; smoked salmon savoury waffles and their renowned duck egg en cocotte with wild mushrooms, Gruyère and truffle soldiers are master stroke.
Booking is essential UNLESS you’re intending to visit at 5 in the morning. Then, we’d imagine you’ll find a table.
