Do you like having to yell at your friends when you go out drinking together? Fine, it’s your shout. We like to cater for everybody, so we’ve put together a list of ten places where talking is easier – ideal for those quiet catch-ups or maybe even date night. Of course, any bar can get a bit noisy if there’s a large and rowdy crowd in. But these places are all top bets if you don’t want to run in a hoarse-race.
As the name suggests, it's all about the sushi at this Scrutton Street spot, between Shoreditch and the City. But the surprise? Well, that comes from inventive toppings for the fish - think seared salmon with mixed radish and beetroot, or sun-dried tomato and melted parmesan. Elsewhere, it's pretty much classic sushi, sashimi, nigiri and maki. Expect, therefore, slices of salmon, tuna, scallop, prawn and eel, California rolls, sushi boxes and platters for sharing. There's also donburi, sushi salads and 'new style' sashimi - thinly sliced fish gently cooked with warmed olive oil. The drinks list features soft drinks, hot Japanese teas, miso soup and organic coffee. Keep an eye out for lunch set menus too - they come with a complimentary little gift from the chef. How nice.
