Sky High Dining

Some of the best meals in London boast the best views

Christopher's Grill (London) — Conveniently located across from the Lyceum Theatre, this stylish art deco restaurant offers a reasonably priced pre- and post-theatre menu served before 6:15 pm or after 10 pm. Though not particularly high up, several tables of 2-4 have an interesting view towards Waterloo Bridge. They serve modern American cuisine and are particularly well-known for their martini bar. Given my sweet tooth I could not resist their Nutella Martini, which is just as decadent as it sounds. 2072 404222

City Social (London) — This Michelin-starred restaurant with a sleek, dimly lit interior is located 24 floors up in Tower 42. Tables of 2-4 enjoy the best city night time views. To be able to try as many dishes as possible, we ended up ordering and sharing. The food was delicious and the service attentive. Not to mention a creative assortment of cocktails and extensive wine list that are hard to resist. 2078 777703

Duck & Waffle (London) — Located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, Duck & Waffle is considered the highest restaurant in the country. The wait staff was chatty and enthused about the food – a combination we found to be rare here. Each dish we had was flavourful*, made with interesting ingredients and meant to be shared. As an avid hiker, I have made it a point to avoid stinging nettles* – not realizing they could be eaten without harm. Not to be missed is the restaurant’s namesake duck and waffle. 2036 407310

Galvin at Windows (London) — As part of the award-winning Galvin group of restaurants, I was surprised to learn Galvin at Windows is located on the 28th-floor of a Hilton hotel. This Michelin-starred French restaurant offers reasonably priced two- and three-course lunch specials. They have even created a special two-course kids menu for £10. 2072 084021

Hutong (London) — One of the best ways to enjoy views in The Shard is to book* a table at Hutong located on the 33rd floor. The interior features traditional wooden Chinese chairs and red lanterns looking out floor-to-ceiling windows. We enjoyed a delicious and filling 10-course meal of dim sum and other Northern Chinese dishes. 2030 111257
