Bankside Restaurant has opened a second restaurant in the City. It is called Bankside EC2 and is on Throgmorton Street behind the Bank of England.
Executive chef Richard Oxley, formerly Head Chef at the Tate Modern, presides over a menu which mirrors the dishes and affordable prices which have made Bankside SE1 in Sumner Street such a success. All starters and desserts are £4 and main courses cost from £7.50 to £11.50.
Dishes include vine roasted tomato, mozzarella, rocket and basil salad; confit duck leg with crushed white beans & rosemary; and white chocolate & amaretti biscuit cheesecake.
As in SE1, Bankside EC2 has a small entrance but steps lead down to a large area with intimate seating for 300 people. The flexible dining area includes a range of private dining room options.
Bankside Restaurants are Investors in People accredited and earlier this year were declared Small Company of the Year in the Business in the Community annual award for corporate social responsibility. Initiatives such as recycling and support for local educational projects are set to continue with the launch of the City restaurant.
