My last visit to 40|30 Restaurant at the Gherkin was in January, long enough a gap in my view. So it was back again with a group of friends to enjoy a night out in the one of the “COOLest venues of the Noughties“.
So is it still “Cool”? – Absolutely.
This place has substance and style, there is no question that 40|30 is continuing to delivering first class food in a first class venue.
The menu was both interesting and varied, some classic food combinations and some more surprising ones. My main course of Pork belly with Black Pudding doughnuts was just stunning and the cheese cake with celery of all things, was another standout.
For food of this calibre in such a world class location, 2 courses at £39.50 and 3 courses at £47.50 is such a good deal (especially as it includes an amuse bouche and a pre dessert). The wine list is extensive but there are sufficient bottles under £40 to ensure that it is not too daunting.
You could tell by the empty plates at our table just how much we all enjoyed the food.
