Employ Russell Sage Studio – creator of Dishoom, the new Quaglino’s and a string of Jason Atherton restaurants – to refurbish one of London’s most-loved eateries, then bring in Frederick Forster, previously head chef at Shoreditch hotspot Boundary, and what do you get? A gloriously lavish dining space with a suitably sumptuous, French menu to match, that’s what.
Welcome to the newly reopened Le Pont de la Tour, where the food is excellent and the star of the show might just be the sleek and sexy cruise-liner-like bar that greets guests as they enter. Live music enhances the experience every Thursday to Saturday. Rousing views of Tower Bridge are provided all year round.
