Harvey Nichols’ Summer Menu with the OXO Tower

Make the most of the heatwave with these mouth-watering summery offerings

Harvey Nichols launched their ever-popular summer menu this month in collaboration with the OXO Tower Restaurant and Brasserie, and it promises to bring a seasonal and summery flair to both the OXO Tower itself and the Fifth Floor Café at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge. With regionally sourced ingredients, the menu boasts fresh and vibrant dishes (not to mention a complimentary palate-cleansing cocktails) that promise to bring the taste of summer into the mouths of guests. From £23 you can enjoy a three-course meal at the Café, highlights of which include seafood such as crispy squid and pan-fried sea bass, rump of lamb wth a sweet potato dauphinoise, and sweet treats such as a chocolate pecan brownie with ice-cream or a strawberry fraisier along with a choice of cocktail from either a Cherry Blossom Negroni, Kyoto Mule or a Tokyo Highball.

At the OXO Tower, you have a choice of location – you can spend £33 for a three-course meal and cocktail in the Brasserie, which features grilled mackerel, roasted cod, chargrilled rib-eye and a raspberry brûlée. Opt to spend £39 in the Restaurant, on the other hand, and you will be treated to four courses and a cocktail, starting with a scallop taramasalata with Brie, Citrus-cured salmon with seaweed tartar, slow-cooked rump of lamb, and a peach tart with lemon verbena ice cream to finish. Either way, you’ll be treated to an iconic view of the Thames and St. Paul’s Cathedral from London’s famous South Bank. The menu, however, like summer, is fleeting, and you’ll only be able to enjoy one of these delicious meals until the 29th September. The Café in Knightsbridge is open Mon-Sat in the evenings from 6pm – 10:30pm. The OXO Tower Restaurant is open 12pm – 2:30pm every day of the week, 6pm – 6:15pm and 8:30pm – 10pm on Monday and Tuesday; 6pm and 9pm – 10pm on Wednesday and Thursday; for half an hour at 10pm on Friday; 45 minutes from 10pm on Saturday and 8:3pm – 10pm on Sundays. The OXO Brasserie opens from 12pm every weekday, closing at 6:15pm on Monday and Tuesday, 6pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and 5:45pm on Friday.
