Oblix at the Shard celebrates summer

18 July 2019

This summer, Oblix at The Shard are celebrating in style with the launch of their month-long bottomless seafood brunch, taking place every Saturday in Oblix East throughout August. Executive Chef Marcus Eaves has created a menu that best evokes the crisp and revitalising flavours associated with the sea, culminating in a combination of fresh fish, seasonal dishes and bottomless Champagne.

The menu is a cornucopia of seafood dishes; capturing the light, fresh tastes of summer. Alongside the three-course menu, the show-stopping seafood counter will feature bracingly fresh and responsibly-sourced fish dishes. Guests will have the option of upgrading their brunch by opting for free-flowing Billecart champagne. 

The abundant seafood counter will be gloriously piled high with dishes including sustainably sourced scallops, with samphire, chilli and grapefruit; crab salad, marinated fennel, red pepper relish; and seared tuna, sesame, coriander and lime. 

Guests can kick start their feast with sharing starters such as salt cod brandade croquettes, before moving to heartier mains, featuring the likes of crayfish and crab ravioli, and crab & salmon scotch egg, alongside other coastal creations. Making sure no one goes hungry, Oblix has also catered to vegetarians and meat enthusiasts alike, with their signature wagyu burger, a menu mainstay, with baked eggs with tomato, peppers, olives and basil also available.

Finishing off the meal on a sweet note, the dessert counter will feature a number of deliciously different options such as, pistachio and raspberry choux; churros; mini chocolate cornettos and rice pudding with strawberry and lemon verbena.

In the spirit of indulgence, unlimited Billecart champagne can be enjoyed throughout the meal for an additional £45. Alternately, visitors can opt for unlimited wine (£20) or organic wine (£30) including both red and white.

Oblix East, housed within The Shard, boasts unrivalled views from the Gherkin and the Walkie-Talkie, to Tower Bridge and beyond. The stylish and laid-back restaurant operates at a different pace to its Oblix West sibling located across the corridor. With its sleek furnishings, plush seating, and an abundance of natural light, Oblix East has become one of the most rivalled restaurants in London thanks not only to its views, but also for its remarkable food and friendly service.

The three-course brunch and seafood counter will be priced at £70 and available on Saturday from 12pm-3:30pm. As part of Oblix’s bottomless summer, an unlimited drink offering can also be added to Oblix West’s lunch and afternoon tea for £45pp; and in Oblix East at Friday lunchtime and Sunday brunch for £45pp.
