"There's definitely been an explosion of high-rise dining in the City with City Social, Sushisamba, Duck and Waffle and the restaurants opening in the Walkie Talkie," says Ben McCormack, Editor of restaurant review website Square Meal, "The rise of high-rise dining has put the City, as in the Square Mile City, on the map as a dining destination. The appeal of being able to gaze out at wonderful views as you dine is definitely something that diners enjoy McCormack feels. "In terms of interest there is a huge amount of excitement about this type of restaurant. One of the things you always look for in a restaurant is atmosphere and surroundings and I think, particularly when you walk into these places for the first time, they just have such a magic when you see London laid out below you. Whether it's a sunny day and everything is bright and glistening or it's in the evening and all the lights are glistening, it's really such a wonderful background to having a meal."
The Square Meal philosophy, explains McCormack, is to see London's restaurants as "almost a part of the capital's entertainment industry - opera, ballet, concerts, theatre and restaurants.
McCormack cites Jason Atherton's City Social as a high-level restaurant which succeeds in its own terms.
Ben McCormack is a fan of the thrill offered by the new skyscraper restaurants, both in terms of great views and great cuisine. "If you want a wow factor, to be able to go and eat waffles at Duck and Waffle while you watch the sun rise over London at 4am on a summer's morning - that's almost a bucket list wish. A seasoned observer of London's dining scene, he is also looking forward to what's to come this year. "I think 2015 is going to be very exciting for the City with the Broadgate redevelopment, with Yauatcha opening there. There some great quality restaurant operators who now see The City as a valid destination where they need to have a presence. The rise (pardon the pun) of skyscraper dining allows the general public to experience these huge buildings in a new way. "You see them going up for such a long time," points out McCormack, "that they become embedded in your consciousness.

Ollie Dabbous's self-named Fitzrovia restaurant - which offers a 'thrillingly refreshing' dining experience, according to Square Meal's editor Ben McCormack (pictured, right) - has been revealed as the BMW Restaurant of the Year 2012, beating contenders such as Chrysan, The Delaunay and Quo Vadis.
Speaking at a press conference for international journalists covering the cultural side of London during the Olympics, Oliver told Square Meal editor Ben McCormack: 'The government has relaxed the rules around the food served in academies, which in my mind is unforgiveable,' adding, 'I know we're in a recession, but this was a cash-neutral decision.'
