August 2019: New Shoreditch eateries just keep coming and we’ve added a fistful of recent arrivals to our list of top recommendations: Burger & Beyond (a permanent restaurant from the street-food supremos); Crispin (a head-turning coffee bar/bistro); Pachamama East (an offshoot of Marylebone’s Peruvian fusion restaurant), and Gloria – a riotous fun-loving trattoria. We’ve also included three established big hitters for the suited-and-booted crowd: Kenza (Lebanese food with oodles of glamour), seafood specialist Angler and dim sum star Yauatcha City.
A digital media hub that nudges up against Liverpool Street, Brick Lane and the City, Shoreditch is home to both hipsters and high-rollers, and its mix of eateries reflect this dual identity. Culinary destinations best visited on expenses like Sagardi feed the suited and booted, while new-wave Brit restaurants like The Clove Club, St. John Bread & Wine and Lyle's cater to the food-obsessed. Then there's Butchies and Smokestak for any east-Londoner hungry for dude food and Instagram fodder.
