Searcys at The Gherkin to reopen this month

Searcys at The Gherkin has announced the reopening of the Helix restaurant from Monday 21 September, as the capital continues to return to normalit following the national lockdown.

Helix, on top of the The Gherkin, will be reopening with a new weekday menu and champagne partnership, alongside its first
afternoon tea.

All-day menu dishes will be served at the very top of the building on level 40, as well as level 39, marking the expansion of the restaurant over two floors, offering 360-degree views of London.

The new menu will focus on seasonal produce and ingredients, paying homage to the markets across the capital, with dishes inspired by iconic food markets such as Billingsgate and Borough Market.

Dishes will include roast pumpkin velouté served with Caraway toast, apple and almond; miso cod loin with roast cauliflower, verjuice and grapes; and white chocolate cremeux, passionfruit, baked chocolate and mint.

This is available for £28 for two courses and £35 for three courses.

Searcys executive chef Darren Deadman has designed an afternoon tea menu including a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, alongside sweet treats of passion fruit mousse, black forest gateaux and lemon macaroon; bottomless champagne will also be an option.

In line with government guidelines, The Gherkin will also be opening its private dining rooms for small events, private dinners and meetings for those in the City.

The Gherkin re-opening signals the continuing re-opening of Searcys across London, with the St Pancras Brasserie by Searcys also set to relaunch on 21 September.
