Some dining experiences come with a side of vertigo, and if you can handle the breathtaking heights (almost clear to the top of Heron Tower, just above Sushisamba) then Duck and Waffle could easily become your new London favorite. One of the few 24 hour establishments in the city (if you’re willing to shell out close to £50 per head), Duck and Waffle is sinful and stunning. Foie brulee (yep, it’s exactly what you think it is) and bowls of crab are small-plate alternatives to the eponymous duck and waffle, a sweet and savoury blast of soul food to fuel your Shoreditch nights. A can’t miss for jet-setters, umami enthusiasts, and adventurous Londoners.
High dining in every sense, the much revered Duck and Waffle enjoys a delightful spot on the 40th floor of Heron Tower in central London with expected views of the iconic skyline. It’s worth a visit for the rush of the elevator alone: 40 floors in about 30 seconds, especially at two in the morning after a few drinks. It’s got a glammed up cafe vibe more like a club pretending to be a bistro. By day they serve small plates and have a raw bar, but the late night menu is decadent and rich, ox cheek grilled cheese for example. It is at its best at brunch however, whatever time of day you choose to eat it. Alas, the table game comes into play with lucky diners reserving weeks in advance.
