Featured Shoreditch Restaurants
. The Clove Club
British, Modern restaurant in Shoreditch
Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old St - EC1
Beyond amazing!!!! Isaac McHales playful and exquisitely crafted cuisine provides one of Londons best trendy gastronomic experiences. Despite the hipster street cred of this slightly sparse and echoey chamber inside Shoreditchs fine old town hall, staff are attentive and not overbearing, but the pay-in-advance policy can seem irritating.
Mediterranean restaurant in Shoreditch
49 Columbia Road - E2
Ed Wilsons intelligently thought-out dishes always give the same hearty, down-to-earth impression (simple, with no pretension, but clearly demonstrating a superb level of skill and creativity, and great ingredients) at his East End venture (nowadays under his sole ownership). Its a light and bright room epitomising the best of East London design hype an ex-workshop, with exposed brick, and zinc things, and those who dine in the back room have the benefit of being able to see the open kitchen. The unusual and intriguing wine list is not a brief read, but it rewards those who select off piste options.
. Blanchette East
French restaurant in Shoreditch
204 Brick Lane - E1
A touch of France in the centre of London this buzzing two-year-old feels like its been in Soho for years and is an excellent place for the price. Traditional-ish Gallic dishes with a tapas twist rustically presented and packed with flavour include a good selection of regional French cheeses and charcuterie. Blanchette East opened in mid-August 2016 on east Londons curry mile, with a similar menu, but also new Southern French and North African dishes.
British, Modern restaurant in Shoreditch
The Tea Building, 56 Shoreditch High Street - E1
James Lowe and the team continue to inspire at this continually excellent, hipster-vibe Shoreditch venue, whose menu is designed with simplicity at heart, yet refined with complexity of flavour: I was a bit sceptical about the set 5-course dinner but my god, was I proved wrong! Incredible cooking and great value for money!
. Taberna do Mercado
Portuguese restaurant in Shoreditch
Spitalfields Mkt - E1
You can feel Nuno Medess passion for the food at his casual taberna-style yearling in Spitalfields Market, which is equally suited to a drop in for a pastel de nata and a coffee, as for a full meal. The unfussy and nostalgic Portuguese dishes use lots of obscure ingredients, but are brilliantly successful, while friendly, well-informed staff are keen to assist with selections. Top Menu Tip fish in a tin is the highlight.
Pizza restaurant in Shoreditch
374-378 Old St - EC1
Outstanding pizza unusual flavours but working together really well and with a wonderful, thin dough base win acclaim for these buzzy and cheery pitstops; have a huge pizza or just a slice but be prepared to wait.
. Eyre Brothers
Spanish restaurant in Shoreditch
70 Leonard Street - EC2
Superb food from Spain and Portugal (both as sit-down meals and light tapas at the bar) provides ample motivation to seek out this warm and stylish haunt near Silicon Roundabout. Theres also the finest selection of Iberian wine, including sparklers, rosés and sherry.
Indian restaurant in Shoreditch
7 Boundary St - E2
Buzzy, bordering on frenetic these wonderful replicas of Mumbais Parsi cafés have exceptional energy levels for a fast-expanding chain, and offer deeply satisfying, colonially-inspired, street-food style dishes (including terrifically interesting breakfasts), plus excellent cocktails. The catch? the limited-bookings policy leads to massive queues out of all proportion to reality. Top Menu Tip the black dhal is a must.
Burgers, etc restaurant in Shoreditch
147-149 Curtain Rd - EC2
What burgers at Byron hope to be when they grow up: juicy patties, awesome brioche, and fries to die for! This excellent small group is also not hostage to the political correctness of so many others who refuse to serve medium-rare meat.
