Time Out says
A second branch of Vintage Salt, with upmarket versions of fishy classics and a fish-friendly wine list.
This seafood restaurant – or poshed up fish and chip shop, if you will – comes from Des McDonald, ex-head chef at The Ivy and the man behind Q Grill, the Holborn Dining Room and the original Vintage Salt over on Upper Street. This Liverpool Street branch aims to bring a slice of the Cornish coast to the City.
Here the menu is slightly different to the Islington original, with sharing plates alongside the mains. Dishes range from salmon ceviche, crayfish cocktail and salt and pepper squid with chilli jam to shrimp burger with spicy tartare, whole Cornish plaice with capers, lemon and chilli, and sea bass 'a la plancha' with surf clams and wilted beech greens.
The breakfast menu should prove popular in these parts. Expect various butties (bacon, bacon and egg, sausage and egg, grilled cheese) alongside eggs benedict, eggs royale, kale benedict and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. Coffee is from Ozone, tea from the Rare Tea Company.
