With spring officially in session, and the sun officially shining, many of us are looking straight towards the weekend and planning on heading to some of London’s hotspots in order to bask in the sun and indulge in some fine cuisine. Enter, Sea Containers London.
Nestled along London’s Southbank, the 359-room hotel and restaurant boast a glassy, industrial exterior courtesy of the original Seas Containers building which was dreamed up by celebrated architect Warren Platner. While culture-infused exteriors already make this a must-visit establishment, the real magic awaits inside. Starting with a menu filled with a delicious array of award-winning cocktails, crafted by none other than Ryan Chetiyawardana, visitors are invited to sip on their drinks whilst soaking in divine views of the River Thames and the London skyline which has most recently been set aglow by Spring’s presence.
As for food, innovation is on the brain over at Sea Containers as its restaurant unveils the new Transatlantic Journey menu. Set to tie the building’s history into each sumptuous mouthful, whether it be crispy pan-fried squid or a plate of buttery grilled sweetheart cabbage, each dish brings with it the promise of locally sourced ingredients and a delightful explosion of flavours appropriate for the current changing of seasons.
When discussing the new menu, Chef Matheson explains, “It feels like the right time to spice things up and launch an exciting new menu that encompasses the history and heart of the hotel. Chef Barrow and I have collaborated to put our stamp on the menu, whilst keeping it in line with the playful sharing style Sea Containers Restaurant is known for.”
So, whilst thinking about your next sun-soaked motive in the City, it is clear that Seas Containers is the only place you should be booking.
