The rooftop also features a cocktail bar and restaurant for socialising and fun & food with fabulous views. Along with the Rooftop bars, New Change also features Jamie Oliver's restaurant Barbecoa. This is the UK's first Barbecue steakhouse, featuring traditional fire-based cooking with amazing ingredients, all with provenance. This is the statement on the website by the menu:
"You will not taste a steak like ours anywhere else in the world. Every cut of beef has been handpicked to our exact requirements and dry aged in-house for anything up to 70 days. But that's not all we cook - we also serve melt-in-the-mouth pulled pork, delicious aromatic lamb skewers, crispy calamari and amazing vegetable sides.
To match the food, we have the widest range of American whiskies in the UK, a wine list that references every corner of the globe, the best beers that the US and UK have to offer, and a cocktail menu to rival any City bar"Last Sunday I lunched at Barbecoa and can say that the menu statement is true... my steak was amazing... my only steak which could rival this was one I ate in New York at 5 Ninth. I opted for the RUMP on a bed of Charred Aubergine, Yoghurt, Rocket and double fried beef dripping chips. Both absolutely melt in the mouth delicious.
As you can see I had stunning views across to St Pauls Cathedral which was the perfect backdrop to a mouth-watering lunch. After leisurely lunch it was time for dessert!.... With so many delicious options on the menu it was too hard to choose,
- Amedei white chocolate panna cotta Wild Strawberries, Champagne & Basil
- Peanut Butter cheesecake Poached Black Cherries, Black Cherry Sorbet & Peanut Brittle
- BarBecoa Brownie Raspberry & Pink Peppercorn Sorbet & Aerated Chocolate
- Amalfi lemon Meringue tart Red & Black Currants, Confit Lime & Lemon Balm
- Pecan & BourBon seMifreddo Candied Maple Bacon,
- Caramalised Banana, Dark Chocolate & Caramel Sauce
Barbecoa is a gorgeous restaurant, clean lines, stunning views, and good service with a friendly knowledgeable team. The ambience and décor is an urban mix of chrome, wood, & fire. It did have the meatpacking vibe of New York which I completely loved.
I enjoyed my unplanned visit here immensely and will visit again. This is a restaurant that is an indulgent treat and not a budget option... perfect for special occasions and treats.
