You don't have long, but if you plan to visit Smollensky's before the end of this month, you MUST MUST MUST order one of the wines on offer within their Festival of Rioja season, running until the end of November. Upon the recommendation of our incredibly helpful waitress, my pal and I went for a bottle of the Rioja Reserva Vivanco (£31.50) which had beautiful, deep berry notes; warming and soft, perfect for succulent, comforting dishes. It is one of the loveliest reds I've had in recent months. 

To go with our wine, I chose a succulent, rare sirloin steak for myself (£21.50), and my friend chose a bowl of steaming, white wine soaked moules frites (£12.95). The mash which arrived on the side of my steak was smooth and creamy, soaking up the juices from the tender, juicy steak. The black and blue sauce that accompanied it was beautiful, with a warm slice and a salty kick from the cheese. My friend’s moules frites were fresh and creamy. The garlic and white wine creamy sauce permeated through the open hinges of the shells and covered every last piece of flesh. 

It would appear Canary Wharf isn't the soulless, baron place I thought it would be on a weekend. Turns out, it has quite a life, so if you're looking to expand your evening horizons, i'd say it's worth heading there for drinks and dinner on a weekend.

Great food and a nice warm atmosphere. The full rack of ribs we ordered came out bigger than the plate itself, but was some of the best ribs ive tasted in London. Worth a visit
