The Irish-born chef has previously worked alongside Anthony Demetre at Wild Honey, and took the helm at Demetre’s three month pop-up at Tower 42 - before working with Nuno Mendes at Chiltern Firehouse. The modern European restaurant (with huge expansive terrace with herb garden) produces much of their ingredients from their own farm as well as curing their own charcuterie to serve.
The main room evokes the timeless grandeur of a Scandinavian farmhouse – featuring an open kitchen, sweeping stone bar and rich, stained oak furniture, illuminated by Allegra’s floor to ceiling windows and framed by a natural stone Montpelier floor. Retractive glass walls open out onto the terrace and large garden overlooking the London skyline.
Outdoor seating areas are sheltered by the triple-height, cedar cantilevered roof and illuminated pergola. A separate terrace menu features dishes cooked from the outdoor wood-burning grill, which acts as a large fireplace during autumnal evenings.
Allegra's terrace flows into the remarkable Highline Sky Garden, - an intimate, outdoor dining space set amongst an elevated meadow of wild flowers, water features and cedar pathways. Sheltered under a spectacular, cedar-cantilevered roof and fairy-lit pergola, the comfortably heated terrace provides an enchanting alfresco dining experience all year round.
