Four Degree, the Japanese and European riverside restaurant in Vauxhall, has officially opened after an extended soft launch period. The restaurant is spread over two floors, offering incredible Thames-side views, while the fabulous and glamorous interior features a floral installation by celebrity florist, Larry Walshe and stunning light sculptures by renowned designer Tom Dixon.
A distinctive fusion of Japanese and European cuisine, the menu includes dishes such as Wagyu Sirloin with Ponzu Sauce served with garlic chips, spring onion and yuzu daikon and Four Degree’s sushi bar features Usuzukuri Sashimi turbot with Orange Ponzu & Lemon Daikon and Gun Kan Nigiri with King Crab and Tobiko.
The dessert menu includes Four Degree’s Chocolate Fondant with Green Tea ice cream and the Coconut Parfait with yoghurt sauce, lemon curd, crunchy coconut & white chocolate. The kitchen is overseen by new Head Chef Ricardo Garcia, who has previously worked at Jason Atherton’s Social Eating House and Michelin starred The Bingham.
The experimental and seasonal cocktails can be enjoyed by guests whilst looking over London’s skyline on the Four Degree terrace. Tipples include the Bushi, a fresh vodka-based cocktail with a hit of citrus, saiaki, a umeshu and port reduction and smoky finish and the Mai Taiko, Four Degree’s twist on a classic Mai Tai, featuring a blend of Japanese and Caribbean rums and spiced with oriental Falernum.
Rare whiskeys will be available in the Macallan whiskey lounge, which boasts unique and rare whiskeys. Partnering perfectly with this is Four Degree’s extensive selection of premium cigars. Available on the menu is the Romeo Y Julieta Churchill, famously smoked by and named after Lord Churchill, and the world famous Montecristo Open Eagle.
In addition, Four Degree has four beautiful Private Dining Rooms that can hold between 8 and 20 people and that include state-of-the-art conferencing facilities along with excellent sound and visual equipment for those after a party environment.
