If it wasn’t backed by the Clove Club, it’s hard to know how much buzz this rather functional, Shoreditch-vibe newcomer (on the busy Kingsland Road) would otherwise have generated. The website describes the cooking as ‘modern American’, in line with the starry NYC-focused CV of chef Chase Lovecky, but if the words ‘modern European’ were substituted, probably no-one would ever notice the difference. Terminology aside: feedback on the deliciousness of the resulting small plates themselves – while surprisingly limited – has all been upbeat, but, to be harsh, only middling judged by the red-hot standards for this kind of dining in the area generally.

Summary

From The Clove Club: the team have set up former head chef Chase Lovecky in his own restaurant, which opened in September 2018, just up the road from the mothership. We’re told to expect ‘a neighbourhood spot, serving modern American food’, and with his track record (at momofuku in NYC and Jean Georges), it will hopefully be anything but boring.
