Boundary which is a slick restaurant/ roof top bar (no pool though)/ deli/ caf/ hotel combo right opposite Shoreditch House heralds Conran’s return in true fanfare style. This is the bee’s knees. The food is French with perfectly cooked dover sole, impressive displays of fruit de mer, luscious lobster, confit de canard and the mouth-watering rotisserie les landes chicken….. I have been 4 times and want to go again and again and again…. (Monikasays.com)
I had read snippets about The Boundary here and there and was excited to give it a try. I thought it was a Conran restaurant, but that's only half true. It's part of the Prescott & Conran group of companies which according to The Boundary website is '...a joint venture between Terence Conran, Vicki Conran and Peter Prescott.' However, it's still got the Conran name attached and is a swish place as you would expect. It's located on Redchurch Street which is in the middle of grotty but trendy Shoreditch. Somehow, Redchurch Street has turned itself into a bit of a destination with design stores, high end clothing shops, and a variety of other random stores selling all sorts of luxury stuff you don't really need. I wonder how all these expensive shops will fare over the long term.
Our group of five arrived somewhat lost at the reception of The Boundary (which is also a hotel) where our name was taken and we were directed to the elevator. Riding in an elevator to a restaurant in the basement could be a bit of a downer, but instead it only heightened the excitement and when the doors opened we were not disappointed.
Once seated the service was excellent and despite our many many questions, the waiter was very accommodating. I started with the Cornish Crab (GBP 12) which was excellent. Two members of our group had fresh oysters. I am no oyster fan, but I was told they were spot on. My main of Sea Bass and Shrimps (GBP 22) was stunning and I was very pleased. My friends tried the veal and the steak. Everyone was enamored with the restaurant - the service, the scenery and the food. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a destination restaurant.
A good friend took me to the rooftop bar on a Wednesday night (7pm).
So impressed by it, was I - great views, a little bit decadent, good elderflower cocktails, swift service - that I subsequently took my in-town-for-the-weekend friend on the following weekend.
The two visits, in less than a week, could not have been more different.
On the Wednesday, the staff were friendly, efficient & helpful - if somewhat judgemental about the speed of our drinks ordering! There was a small queue to get in but everything was handled well. So all in all, I didn't mind the expense and came away suitably impressed.
On the Saturday we queued for 30mins, managing to just get in before they closed the doors at 9pm, only to get up to the roof and see several tables + chairs free. And to think some people had queued for 90mins and some had left after being told by reception that there was no point in them queuing!!
It became obvious that the downstairs reception rely on a sporadic telephone chat with the rooftop manager, in order to determine availability.
The same manager appears to be doing this whilst dishing out menus, serving drinks, dealing with staff & customers...etc etc
Perhaps they were short-staffed on Saturday?
Unfortunately we were then subjected to service by the unfriendliest waitress ever. I had to ask her 3 times for drinks and then felt guilty for bothering her. And it wasn't just us - a chap on the neighbouring table complained to the manager.
We paid £22 for carafe of Planters Punch. Stick to glasses, else it's a case of "can we have some cocktail with our ice please?"
The waitress toured the tables at around 9.30pm advising all that the kitchen was closing soon. We made a last minute request for snacks, which was a mistake - we got the been-out-all-day, bottom-of-the-pan dregs.
I begrudged the service charge and did not leave a tip.
The views were, of course, great on both evenings.
Would I go again? Maybe. But not on a Saturday.
I only went to the rooftop for drinks. The drinks themselves are pretty resonably priced considering the view (£6.50 for a G&T, £9 for a cocktail) but beware the added service charge! I like that they provide blankets but the coal fire might need a rethink bits of coal dust and smoke were blowing into everyone's eyes
First off, props to the Yank bartender. A real pro. High-end place with a rooftop bar. Food was 90% spot-on except for one thing…..the frickin’ steak. That’s the one thing you don’t want to screw up. Mine was easily medium-well with little pink leftover for my inner carnivore. Not really much excuse for it. EVERYTHING else was really great.
Annoying that after dropping GBP 500 they wouldn#t let us grab a beer on the rooftop but apparently they struggle with zoning laws or some such. Would still go back, if nothing else just to have one of their Old-fashioneds.
There’s a really sorry-assed pub across the street if you’re into mixing dives with your posh joints.
Took my family here after it being suggested by a friend at work. Had to book early in the day (midday) as was fully booked from 2pm ad it was easy to see why. I didn’t know what to expect and we were immediately surprised that the main restaurant is in the basement. It is an amazing space though and has enough light streaming in from the pavement skylights, wasn’t sure about some of the decoration though. We headed for the roast and it was amazing, my Lamb was one of the best I have eaten, and a really generous portion of roasties and vedge. Some of the service was a bit restrained and found it pretty hard to get a smile out of our main waiter, but generally a really great meal and experience. Would definitely go again but would make a route for the roof garden when it’s finished for summer.
Conran in back in the restaurant business. And it’s good to have him back. Opposite the uber trendy Shoreditch House this new restaurant popped up a few weeks ago. Turns out it has a lovely deli, cafe, rooftop venue and designer hotel rooms available too. But I just ate in the main restaurant and it was a pleasure.
The focus is on seasonal classic English and French dishes. I had to go for the daily special, each day there is a different option from the rotisserie although the chicken is available any day. The day I was there the special was a Coulibiac, somthing I have never come across before. It was delicious though, essentially a salmon dish in a giant brioche.
The staff were attentive and knowledgable, in fact our sommelier decanted our red wine as apparently it was a little colder then she would have liked it. It’s rare to find that level of service these days. My friends steak au poivre was melt in the mouth gastro-fest. The sides and deserts were all spot on. Add in the lovely crisp white linen and proper sized cutlery along with silver salvers all over the walls and it makes it a great place to go for a celebratory night out. A little pricey for a casual dinner but well worth it for a special ocassion.
Check out the numerous bits of art work across the building too, from the contemporary mural all the way through the staircases to the large installation pieces. I didn’t love the odd astronomy patterned lighting panels in the main dining room but how much time do you spend staring upwards anyway.
A very pleasant relaxed evening, I will definitely be going back here.
