The stripped-back aesthetic at this Dalston restaurant (think concrete, wrought iron, mismatched furniture and bare white walls) seems a good fit for its location. Its trendy clientele aid the look, too.
The menu – a mix of European dishes with influences from further afield – is made up of small plates designed to share. Expect dishes such as grilled aubergines with tahini yoghurt and a jalapeno sauce, Cornish mussels with clams, coriander and grilled lime, and grilled rump of lamb with peas, mint and shoots. Brunches of baked eggs with burnt end beans, or black pudding with hash brown and hollandaise prove popular.
Keep an eye out for seasonal and chef's menus, as well as a Sunday roast with meats cooked in a charcoal oven.
