Eating in London: One Canada Square 'After Dark'

This is the perfect pre-night out dinner, or something for a bit of a treat. One Canada Square in Canary Wharf, London has their 'After Dark'* every Saturday evening after 6pm and for £45 you get an unlimited supply of wine, beer or Prosecco (for two hours) and two courses. I headed there one Saturday before heading out for the rest of the evening and it was the most incredible and luxurious start to the evening. 

The restaurant is all about the food, drink and service. The location is great too, it's close to the station so makes it super easy to head home afterwards, or out to somewhere else. Buuut, the food just made it for me. As we sat pondering over what to order, they brought out some warm bread and butter. It was so so tasty and got took the edge off my hangry vibes. 

They then brought over an Amuse Bouche, unfortunately it was very meaty, so I skipped out on this one but I heard the bon bon tasted incredible. Then to start, we both went for the Truffled Parsnip soup. It was honestly the best soup I've ever tried. I don't say that sort of thing often, but it was truly incredible. Served with a couple of cheese straws to accompany it, I felt like I didn't need to try another soup again. Can I have it again now please? 

For mains, I went for the Cornish Squid and Crab Linguine with Smoked Tomato, Chilli and Garlic and Joe went for the Chargrilled Bavette Steak, Roast Garlic Butter and Fries. Now not quite as incredible as the starter, but still a blooming great main. The linguine tasted incredible but I have to admit I was super full from what I'd eaten previously (and the wine which they kept topping up - no complaints there, at all!). The steak was good too, but Joe was suffering the same problem of feeling a tad full and so we both gave desserts a miss although they did sound incredible. If the rest of the meal was anything to go by, it would have been incredible. 

I'd completely recommend going here and taking up this offer. I've noticed the menu changes often so  you can go back again and try something else. Perfect for large groups before going out or just for a few of you. You can also head up to the mezzanine afterwards and have a cocktail where the DJ is playing. Super fun and I can't wait to go back.
