A cocktail bar, restaurant and purveyor of beers on Paradise Row, just up from Bethnal Green tube. It certainly looks the part, with its high ceiling arching over chesterfield sofas, a statement bar and dining tables and chairs with more than a hint of the 50s about them. There's a mezzanine level too, and sunlight streams through floor-to-ceiling windows during the day.
There's a modern-European feel to the food menu. Dishes range from a Devon crab salad or potted pork with cornichons and soda bread to whole roasted sea bass with salsify, crispy shallots and burned lime, and Gloucester Old Spot pork belly with kale, cherry tomatoes and a garlic and mustard mash. Breakfasts - with many items smoked in-house - prove popular.
The drinks selection features a range of classic cocktails, including house margaritas, daiquiris and old fashions, as well as an 'ethical' espresso martini - made with Fair quinoa vodka, Fair coffee liqueur and coffee from Counter Coffee, just round the corner. A decent wine list and bottled beers are also on offer.
Keep an eye out for Sunday roasts and generous feasting menus, priced per person.
