Officially opening this week is London’s pioneering underwater fine dining experience. Taking residence near London Blackfriars, an area steeped in history, the restaurant will allow guests to venture along one of its secret underwater passages and into the murky depths of the famous river. The wealth of subterranean history will then be visible from the comfort of their exclusive dining table, situated at the heart of the restaurant’s glass atrium.
Once declared as biologically dead, the river is now considered by fishing experts as cleanest it’s been for over 200 years, and is a thriving hub for freshwater fish such as trout, wild salmon, plaice andhaddock amongst others. Therefore, in an attempt to showcase this continuing success of the Thames clean up programme, the restaurant will offer diners an iconic, and unforgettable, gastronomic experience with all produce being sourced directly from the river. Classic dishes such as fish and chips, Dover sole and bass will all feature, but with a modern twist inspired by top guest chefs that will regularly feature in the restaurant’skitchen.
