D&D London announced that 14 Hills, its new restaurant located on the 14th floor of 120 Fenchurch Street, will open this November. The modern British restaurant will serve an all-day menu created by Executive Chef Thomas Piat and will be open from breakfast and brunch through to lunch and dinner.
Occupying a space of c.9,200 square feet, 14 Hills is positioned below the public roof garden that crowns Generali Real Estate’s new office building, designed by Eric Parry Architects. The restaurant will not only have spectacular views of the London skyline including the Thames, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and The Shard but also be planted with mature trees, shrubs and several large pergolas, creating a lush interior to complement the garden above. Inspired by English terraces, roof gardens and courtyards, the dining room will have a canopy of evergreen plants and seasonal climbers growing at its centre. Award winning Robert Angell Design International is the restaurant’s interior designer. The firm’s past projects include restaurants and bars for The Berkeley and Savoy hotels and more recently the restaurant Wild Ink at Hudson Yards in New York.
Thomas Piat was formerly Executive Chef at Daniel Boulud’s Bar Boulud at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge and, most recently, at JOÍA par Hélène Darroze in Paris. Piat’s menu will be modern British cooked with French flair. He will oversee a comprehensive set of menus that move from breakfasts and business lunches to sophisticated dinners, as well as Saturday brunches, Sunday roasts and a fast-serve deli counter.
Piat’s kitchen will be complemented by sommeliers who will curate a list of the grand and not so grand, but always interesting wines. 14 Hills will also have a bar that puts cocktails front and centre. The extensive selection will make room for classics, signature serves and modern interpretations of old favourites, all to be paired with modern British bar snacks. Many ingredients that the bar requires will be crafted in-house.
