Event contract caterer and restaurant operator Rhubarb has announced it will create two new restaurants and a canapé & Champagne bar as part of the Sky Garden events space in the 20 Fenchurch Street skyscraper development.

At 38 storeys high, 20 Fenchurch Street, which is being jointly developed by Land Securities and Canary Wharf Group, will house mainly office tenants although it will be topped by three floors of dining and events space and a Sky Garden.

It is these levels at the top of the tower which will be designed and operated by Rhubarb following today’s announcement of a ‘significant leasing deal’ between the company and the building’s developers.

Rhubarb has plans to create a food bar on level 35 which will serve champagne and canapés, a ‘chic brasserie’ on the 36th floor and a ‘refined seafood bar and grill’ on Level 37. The team will also be providing catering services for office tenants as well as an event catering service which will build on the firm’s existing relationship with Heston Blumenthal.  

“We are delighted to be developing three distinctive new food and drink concepts in the heart of the city,” said Helen Bowey, retail director at Rhubarb. “There will be a diverse range of menus and offers available from classic to innovative dishes and a sophisticated sea food counter to a stylish food bar.

“The Sky Garden will provide 21st century dining at its best set across three floors and with exceptional views of the capital,” she added.
