Around The City at the moment it’s all about dining with a view. First there last year was Duck & Waffle and Sushisamba by Liverpool Street, and now its the turn of Oblix on the 32nd floor of The Shard, which I shot for Time Out London.
A sister to Rainer Becker’s Zuma and Roka, Oblix is an homage to the New York Grill at the Park Hyatt Tokyo hotel which he launched in 1992.
Oblix is divided into two parts – the main restaurant with open kitchen and lounge bar which offers a daytime deli menu, weekend brunch and live music in the evening. The views from both are stunning, offering the spectacle of London’s greatest hits.
And for the moment at least, you can still just about wave to friends over at Duck & Waffle.
