City’s favorite M restaurant diversifies with third location in Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf may still be a little quieter than usual, but restaurateur Martin Williams will soon give commuters another reason to return to their desks.
It is expected to open the third two-story M Restaurant in the Newfoundland building – the sixth tallest building in the UK – overlooking the Thames and the waterways of Canary Wharf next spring.
Investment is another vote of confidence in the rebound of the capital’s financial districts.
M’s site on Threadneedle Street has become a city favorite since it opened in 2014.
The new site will house 180 seats, two private dining rooms, a wine tasting room, a “wagyu and wine” café as well as a private lounge for members.
The menu, designed by Executive Chef Michael Reid, is inspired by the Mediterranean and will feature the world’s best meats as well as a plethora of seafood dishes.
“We secured this site in 2016 and creating it (while seeing the spectacular 200m tower rise from the ground) has been a passionate 5 year project, during which we saw M restaurants in Threadneedle Street and Victoria Street become the favorites of Londoners and win many awards, ”Williams told City AM
“Since we opened in the square mile in 2014, our Threadneedle St location has become a favorite spot for city residents. It’s like we are acknowledging that support by creating another spectacular place in London’s financial district for people to enjoy. I’m sure business leaders and entrepreneurs will love the look, feel and offerings of the Destination Bar, Grill Restaurant, Private Dining Rooms and Members’ Lounge at Canary Wharf, ”said he continued.
