Escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street at the John Lewis roof garden, which is welcoming visitors back with Italian street food and cocktails this summer.
Soak up the sunshine atop the flagship store, where you can enjoy a variety of small plates, wine, cocktails (£10 each), Italian desserts and gelato at the RossoTerrazza café (brought to you by the restaurant chain Rossopomodoro), which has popped up on the terrace until the end of August.
It’s a family-friendly café, ideal for a quick pit stop or light meal, and seating is available both indoors and outdoors. The quinoa salad was a personal favourite, as well as the chicken pizza wrap (both pictured above).
Alongside the RossoTerrazza café, on the terrace there’s also a Joe & the Juice bar and a showcase of a selection of John Lewis items available to buy.
The roof garden is an open-air affair, so it’s probably best enjoyed on days when the weather is behaving itself.
RossoTerrazza is open from now until the end of August, on Monday-Tuesday:12-8pm; Thursday: 12-9pm; Friday-Saturday: 12-8pm and Sunday: 12-6pm.
