Don’t ask why a brass brunch was necessary, just enjoy it.
Well, here’s a brunch to toot your horn about. For reasons that were never fully explained to us, Canary Wharf restaurant Plateau is putting on a drum ‘n’ brass bottomless brunch, beginning from Saturday 28th April. Personally, I can’t imagine anyone said “this brunch is quite nice, but it really needs some trombones to complete the ambience”, yet here we are.
To be fair, if you’re going to book a brass band to play a bottomless brunch, you may as well go out and get the best. And that’s exactly what Plateau have done. Diners will be serenaded by the feel-good beats of Old Dirty Brasstards, who’ve rocked (or should that be brassed?) the likes of Glastonbury, Latitude, and Bestival. You may also have seen them partaking in the festivities at Winterville on Clapham Common, and I hear they’re an in-demand wedding band.
So, we’ve covered the beats, now it’s time for the eats. The drum ‘n’ brass brunch will offer dishes such as spicy crab with scrambled eggs on toast, the burger with black pudding and Camembert, and Oreo French toast with whipped cream. There are no wrong answers here, particularly since brass brunches haven’t been a thing long enough to develop specific social faux pas. Even if there were, you could wash them away with Plateau’s themed cocktails, include the Brassy Mary, the Drum Punch, and the Saxo-tini.
To summarise: bottomless brunch and bottomless brass. The whole enchilada will set you back £48, which includes two courses, bottomless prosecco or rose, views of Canary Wharf, and as much brass as you can handle. The brunches run on April 28th, May 12th and 26th, and June 9th, and you’ll surely be brassed off if you miss it.
Find Plateau on the fourth floor of Canada Place, Canary Wharf, E14 5ER. Nearest station is Canary Wharf.
