Unusually for a restaurant where the food’s so exquisite it’s the walls that have won awards here. The unusual & itself award-winning building by Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron is a perfect marriage with the restaurant, which itself has won a James Beard design award for the 10,000sq ft rooftop. Unquestionably the best views in town, design features such as the 22ft Jurassic-style vertical plant wall takes the edge off well, the edge, that looms down if you ask for a quieter table in the corner.
Take your eyes of the views, and the hipsters who have brought lounging to an almost professional level, and feast your eyes on the food from the veritable stellar cast of chefs. Truly international combinations of Japanese, French and South American creations such as cold smoked scallops warmed by bloody mary foam with pancetta and just enough bonito flakes for lively dose of umami.
