Situated on level 33 of The Shard, Hutong serves the fascinating and diverse cuisines of Northern China. With panoramic views over the London skyline, Hutong is based on the much-loved restaurant of the same name in Hong Kong and is named after Beijing’s ancient hutongs – the now fast-disappearing narrow lanes which criss-crossed the city revealing its old family houses, their grand courtyards and life within.
Hutong’s cuisine takes its inspiration from the dishes served in the imperial palaces of what was then Peking. Based on the ‘Lu school’ cuisine of Shandong Province, renowned for its seafood and vinegars and with influences from Sichuan Province, famous for its fiery spices and peppers, the menu at Hutong artfully captures the subtlety and surprises of Northern Chinese cooking. The Shanghai Bar features Chinese wines and a cocktail selection inspired by ingredients used in traditional Chinese medicine.
Traditional Chinese red lanterns and beautiful hand-carved wood-panelled ‘Moon Gates’ adorn the room, while a wall of tiled tea bricks (compressed dried Chinese tea) and vintage 1940s tea canisters celebrate the link between China and London and its old tea warehouses. Two semi private dining rooms also offer a stunning view for larger groups.
Guest can enjoy Hutong’s dramatic interior with panoramic views over the London skyline and stunning Northern Chinese cuisine.
