Des McDonald – On the Roof with Vintage Salt

On 1st May, Des McDonald, will launch his third pop-up restaurant at Selfridges; On the Roof with Vintage Salt. Open for five months, Vintage Salt will kick off Selfridges’ ‘Great British Outdoors’ campaign.  This British summer restaurant, bar and terrace is inspired by a Cornish fishing village, where diners can enjoy a unique British seaside dining experience high above the streets of London.

Us Londoners love an al fresco option and Vintage Salt is set to be just that, the ideal venue to escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. The Drift Bar, located on the terrace will have a separate entrance, accessed via the Boardwalk which will be lined with nautical ropes guiding the way to the outdoor terrace.  A wooden beach hut will serve an extensive list of wine and champagne and the dedicated G &T bar will offer Gin cocktails. Guests can escape the sun in one of the two beach huts or enjoy a tipple from the special sundowners menu on the terrace deckchairs while watching the sun go down.

Starters from the Beech Oven menu include; Selection of oysters, Earl Grey smoked salmon, London particular fritters with Colman’s dressing and Spiced tuna tartare served with avocado and pickled cucumber. Diners can then choose from an array of fish dishes including; Lobster buttie with truffled fries, Camden Hells fish and chips and Halibut fish finger sandwiches.

For those seeking a lighter offering, salads include; Salt baked beets with whipped goats cheese and sweet hazelnuts and Chopped salad with house smoked chicken and Shropshire blue cheese.  To finish, the pudding menu features some quirky twists on classic dishes including; Chocolate burger, Caramel brownie sundae dip and Vintage Salt cigar.

With some of the best views over London’s iconic skyline, diners need not fear the infamous British weather as a retractable roof will protect against any sudden downpours.
