Heron Tower panoramaIt’s just a quick and dirty stitched panorama, but you get idea of the amazing view from the terrace of the new restaurant, Sushisamba on the 38th floor of Heron Tower on Broadgate near Liverpool Street station.

So get one of their tasty cocktails down you, enjoy the sunset and then tuck into some damn fine Japanese-South American fusion cuisine.

Autumn squashThe sight of squashes and pumpkins always reminds me of harvest festival and autumn. The other weekend I checked out my new local market and found this little beauty.

I was pleasantly surprised by the great range of stalls and friendly vibe. Notable highlights included a stall with Sardinian artisan fine foods (such as smoked, aged ricotta, fennel-flavoured salami) and an organic veggie stall with amazing heirloom tomatoes. There were too many good options for lunch but I settled on salt beef with a twist – a wrap with pickled cabbage and melted cheese.

I’ll be back…

Cityscape from Heron Tower, BroadgateI was doing a recce the other day at Heron Tower on Broadgate. The job was photography at one of the restaurants at the top of the building. As well as the food, the main order of the day was a dramatic cityscape. I’m due to return in a few days for an evening/night shot so I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out.

I’ve got to admit it’s one of the best panoramas of the City taking in the neighbouring Gherkin, the new Shard, Tower Bridge and the Thames in the background as well as the Olympic Park.
