Sea ContainersTitled Sea Containers after the landmark building's original name, the restaurant within the Sea Containers London combines "the best of England and America" in a restaurant overseen by head chef Gus Crosby. There's a beautiful open plan kitchen with a wood-fired grill where grilled pork chop is cooked, then cut into thick slabs and served on a bed of watercress with a "sharp, cidery vinaigrette" (Marina O'Loughlin, The Guardian). "The menu is by no means exorbitant," writes Zoe Williams in The Telegraph, "and by the standard of the fancy interior, is actually good value." "Well worth the stroll from either Tate Modern or the South Bank" says Time Out noting approvingly, "simple ingredients were imaginatively used... in a Middle Eastern-style puree of smoky aubergine". The restaurant has its own bar, but farther along the Thames-side promenade is the more stylish Dandelyan, a proper destination bar.
