The Clocktower is the new hot spot from restaurateur Stephen Starr serving modern cuisine with a British touch.
Spanning three rooms on the second floor of The New York Edition Hotel, the kitchen here is helmed by British Michelin-starred Chef Jason Atherton.
We went for brunch and overall had a really excellent meal. The bucket list dishes are the “Dry Aged Burger” and the “Fish & Chips” which are only available at brunch and lunch. Both are worth trying! The ½ lb burger is made with bacon, cheddar, topped with Churchill sauce and red onions. It was really juicy, tasty and served with thick cut fries.
The fried fish is white, Icelandic cod, beer-battered and served simply on a bed of mushy peas with triple fried fries.
The desserts just blew me away! The pastry chef Sebastien Rouxel makes what I think might be the best apple tart tatin in town. It is a must try!
I love that the meal ends with an old fashioned tin of treats. Everything in there took me back to my childhood of reading Enid Blyton books where the characters where always treated to biscuit tins filled with shortbread, sticky toffee and more.
The Clocktower certainly has got a formula that is going to keep it ticking for several years to come!
