Searcys at the Gherkin reopens

Searcys at The Gherkin reopened the Helix restaurant today as the capital continues to return to normal following the national lockdown. Helix, on top of the The Gherkin, has 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.

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 move signals the continuing reopening of Searcys across London, with the St Pancras Brasserie by Searcys also set to relaunching today.
