Dine in London's newest and most spectacular building
If you're looking for a classy venue for that really special occasion (little Johnny's exams triumph, Dad's birthday, Grandma's successful false-teeth fitting), and you don't feel queasy at 500 feet, then Oblix, located on the 32nd floor of the Shard, may well be just what you're looking for.
Opened in May 2013, this is the first restaurant to set up shop inside the iconic Shard, with window-side diners able to enjoy views so spectacular they may forget they're actually there to eat a meal.
Oblix is the creation of German chef Rainer Becker, a man with a reputation - and I mean that in a good way. Becker made his name with acclaimed international restaurant brands like Zuma and Roka - each serving up tasty barbecued morsels, Japanese style.
With Oblix, however, Becker has moved from East to West, with the restaurant's design and food inspired by a classic New York grill. Becker has worked closely with Oblix head chef Fabien Beaufour to come up with a range of dishes that also incorporate British and European influences, with food prepared using a spit roast, charcoal grills and a wood-fired oven.
If you're more interested in drink than food, you'll be pleased to learn that Oblix also features a bar lounge, which is open all day.
So, you're probably wondering about prices. At the time of writing, the place is so new it hasn't even had a chance to post the menu on its website yet, but check here to see if anything's changed. Of course, with a chef like Becker at the helm, and a location as swish as the Shard, your wallet's bound to take a beating, but for an occasion you want to remember, it could be just the ticket.
