I haven't been to too many, but one spot I have frequented on a couple of occasions is Boundary Rooftop in Shoreditch, once just for drinks and, more recently, for dinner. It was so spectacular that I thought I just had to tell you all about it.
I met my friend Jenny on a gloriously sunny evening and breezed past the queue to get in, feeling super smug - top tip: book ahead.
Whilst the rooftop isn't actually super high up, it does have a great clear view.
However, you can almost feel like you've escaped to more exotic climes as Boundary have just launched a new Provençal-style summer menu. OK, I didn't 100% feel like I was back in the South of France, but I did feel pretty summery! Until it got late and cold and I realised I definitely wasn't wearing enough clothes. But anyway.
As the sun started to set, Jen and I kicked things off with cocktails, naturally.
We nibbled at Petit Lucques olives and savoury-roasted almonds as we sipped. I don't usually go wild for olives, but these were very tasty - they were less round than your bog standard ones - and the salty, smokey almonds were deliciously addictive.
On to the starters! Jenny had asparagus with hollandaise sauce whereas I chose the tricolore quinoa, citrus, pomegranate and green vegetable salad.
When it came to mains, we went to town.
Jenny had the lamb cutlets and I went for the chicken skewers with tzatziki and spring onions. The chicken had been beautifully marinaded and was so flavoursome. It was also perfectly juicy.
Jen informs me her lamb was also pretty dreamy.
The sun was going down and our tummies were filling up with deliciousness.
The service was fantastic, the staff delightfully friendly and the food and drinks were top-quality and extremely delicious. It had been a special and splendid evening. You simply must go.
I was a guest at Boundary Rooftop but I wouldn't have written about it if I didn't truly love it. I wasn't even planning on writing about it but I loved it so much I decided I couldn't not. So there you go. Let me know any other rooftops I should visit!
