Jason Atherton’s City Social at Tower 42 has won the BMW Square Meal Award for Best New Restaurant autumn 2014. The award was presented to the restaurant on Wednesday 1 October. City Social opened in May this year, on the 24th floor of Tower 42.
It is the third time that one of Atherton’s restaurants has won a BMW Square Meal award: Pollen Street Social was Restaurant of the Year in 2011 and Social Eating House took Best New Restaurant in autumn 2013. Square Meal editor Ben McCormack said, ‘Jason Atherton is currently the chef with the Midas touch and he instinctively knows how to give diners a good time. City Social is a spectacular venue that combines sky-high food quality with dizzying views of the Square Mile and the skyline beyond.’
