Where to eat around Canada Square Park

WITH PER­FOR­MANCES ALL SUM­MER LONG – HERE ARE THE BARS TO CHECK OUT

The Wharf - - News -

T he win­dows of Ca­nary Wharf are streaked with rain. Those press­ing their noses against the glass in the cen­tre of the es­tate can hardly fail to have no­ticed the stage ap­pear in Canada Square. It’s sum­mer.

That means a packed pro­gramme of per­for­mances aimed at the de­light of work­ers and visi­tors to the es­tate and, for the area’s bars and restau­rants, a chance to draw an au­di­ence of their own.

Fresh­est among those aim­ing to cash in on the rise in foot­fall is Plateau, which un­veils its pop-up Peroni ter­race to the pub­lic this evening (Thurs­day).

Promis­ing to bring “a taste of Italy to the heart of Ca­nary Wharf” the D&D-run venue has gone into part­ner­ship with the beer brand in cel­e­bra­tion of its re­cently launched Am­bra brew. The apere­tivo drink mixes Peroni’s core Nas­tro Az­zurro lager with the sharp cit­rus of Chinotto – “a rare Ital­ian fruit grown and har­vested in the re­gion of Lig­uria”.

It’s the brew­ery’s first new cre­ation since 1963 and is de­signed to stim­u­late the ap­petite be­fore din­ner. The drink is served in a tum­bler over ice and gar­nished with or­ange peel, pre­sum­ably due to the rar­ity of the Chinotto it­self.

To com­ple­ment its flavour Plateau head chef Jeremy Tre­hout will be serv­ing fresh oys­ters (£3 each), smoked salmon (£9.50) and sweet sor­bets (£2.50 each) on the ter­race in ad­di­tion to the venue’s usual se­lec­tion of bar snacks. Go to plateau-res­tau­rant.co.uk
