Endless summer on Selfridges’ roof

Summer has arrived on Oxford Street, with the seventh opening this month of the Roof Deck Restaurant on Selfridges’ roof – this year with a Californian theme.

The open-air deck is lined by timber beams and tropical palms – and, with all due respect to London weather, there is a retractable roof to protect diners from rain and cold.

Run by restaurant consultant Des McDonald, former head chef of the Ivy and chief exec of Caprice Holdings, the all-day restaurant majors on healthy salads and grains and fresh fish and seafood with a Latin influence, accompanied by frozen cocktails and West Coast or Mexican beers.

McDonald said: “I’ve spent a lot of time in California and enjoy the fresh, healthy attitude to food, so I’m excited to bring this to London.”
