THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rhodes Twenty Four Restaurant Review: The restaurant is way up above the city skyline, so ask for a window table when booking, and if possible one which gives you a view of the Gherkin office building. The décor is bland City style, very well done but not a venue to set your heart beating. The food however, can provide some real treats. Gary Rhodes has made a name for British cooking and if you still don’t know how good that can be, try one of his restaurants. Here you will get the likes of English watercress soup with goat’s cheese fritters or smoked eel and duck foie gras terrine with crisp apple, showing what classic starters should be. All the dishes are seasonally led; in summer expect mains of baked stone bass with English asparagus, Jersey royal potatoes and summer truffle English asparagus, or English veal with broad beans and garlic creamed potatoes. For desserts try the bread and butter pudding whatever the time of year, or a lighter caramelised apricot tart with pistachio mousse and white chocolate ice cream, or a first-rate cheese board. The wine list is serious and seriously expensive. Service is as smooth as it should be given the corporate clientele.
