Oxo Brasserie


This prestigious establishment commands magnificent views of the river and people frequent this place in droves, especially for business lunches and romantic dinners. Modern art hangs by the bar, where a live singer or pianist entertains during the inevitable wait for a table. The food, an eclectic blend of contemporary dishes, strives to keep up with the gargantuan hype, and it's usually the eighth floor vista that impresses more than the plate. The restaurant lighting is supposed to emulate moonlight, but you'll feel obliged to step out onto the 76-meter(250-foot) high terrace and admire the real thing and the mesmerizing, uninterrupted sight of beautiful London landmarks alongside the Thames.
