It goes without saying that the area of Heron Quays is a popular place to live. On the Isle of Dogs, or the island as so many of the residents refer to it, whilst there is a lack of amenities, it goes without saying that the close proximity to the financial district ensures the price tags of the abodes are designed to attract only a certain clientele. With skyscrapers dominating the area, the nearest tube station to the area is Canary Wharf, which is situated on the Jubilee Line. This also adds to the attractiveness of living in the area; transport links in and out of the city. With so many residents on the Island, it goes without saying that there MUST be some sort of restaurant come bar come pub that people can enjoy a tipple with a companion, a business associate or one of the escorts in Heron Quays, it’s just a case of finding them. Normally, if a restaurant labels ITSELF as the best certain cuisine in a certain area, it makes sense that we take it with a pinch of salt. This is because so many places will be sure to award themselves specific titles, and we know that they obviously aren’t impartial, so we like to be able to make the decisions for ourselves. In this instance, we are rather impressed with Amerigo Vespucci, if only of ourselves for the correct pronunciation. Offering incredible views of the docklands and a true, and authentic, taste of Italy, slap bang in the middle of the city’s financial district. The Italian dishes, whilst riddled with carbs, are worth breaking your diet for. The pasta dishes are as genuine as they come, with plenty of meat and fish options to tempt your tastebuds. These change on a daily basis, depending on what’s on offer at the local market. Keeping in line with the area, the nautical-themed restaurant is perfect for a meal alfresco, or perhaps just a few aperitifs with one of the Heron Quays escorts. Either way, the hot and cold starters make for a fabulous introduction to a simply wonderful meal. If you’re looking for something with a little more of a pow, than the gorgeous Dockmasters House offers the most splendid in Indian dining, in the most welcomely traditional way, with a contemporary twist. Set in a three-storey Georgian establishment, patrons can expect an extensive wine list for a lovely grape to accompany their gorgeous dishes. Whilst it caters for the first-timers as well as the experienced connoisseurs, it makes sense that there be an a la carte menu, full of the exciting dishes you’ve always wondered about but never had the chance to try. For example, we’re only ever heard incredible things about the chili scallops and squid. Of course if you’re not a fish fan, the duck confit samosas will be enough to satisfy the most eager of diners. With lunchtime and early evening discounts, everyone is welcome at the Dockmasters House.
