The space, which is enriched with an elegant mix of soft leathers, marble surfaces and clean, composed décor, is in many ways the perfect site for the next venture of this laid-back eatery.
A restaurant, bar and deli in one, Tom’s Kitchen Canary Wharf showcases Tom Aikens’s relaxed menu to a new crowd of food lovers. All the old favourites are there to be sampled: an aesthetically pleasing baked Alaska, a classical steak tartare, a macaroni cheese complete with shavings of truffle – as well as a daily-changing specials board. Diners can be safe in the knowledge that all the dishes are prepared with best-in-class British ingredients.
The food isn’t the only attraction. The centrepiece bar is free-flowing, serving lavish, Champagne-based cocktails, while an outdoor terrace, which seats up to 80, makes a great summertime spot or watering hole for post-work drinks.
The restaurant’s midweek trade is mostly composed of business lunches and breakfasts, but at the weekend expect to see a broader range of clientele enjoying the restaurant’s legendary brunches – the eggs Benedict is particularly dreamy - or perhaps picking up a take-away treat from the deli.
