Summary

This potentially “very interesting newcomer” in Shoreditch (on the site long famous as Eyre Brothers, RIP) with a ‘fire and ice’ theme – a combination of open-hearth, roast dishes with a raw seafood bar – failed to ignite passions amongst our reporters in its first 12 months, despite some adulatory press reviews. Some fans did proclaim its “amazing” dishes, but others said “how I hate this place” citing “terrible food and snotty service”. Perhaps the management just didn’t gel, as Jackson Boxer unexpectedly severed his ties with the place in August 2019, leaving Andrew Clarke to soldier on solo.

Summary

Formerly the site of Eyre Brothers (sadly RIP) then very briefly the very short-lived 70 Leonard St (not so sadly RIP) – now this Shoreditch venue has been taken over by Jackson Boxer (of Brunswick House/LASSCO fame) and Andrew Clarke and given a very Shoreditch makeover (lots of polished concrete), plus an ice bar for raw fish and shellfish, and open-hearth cooking for meat and vegetables. Early press reviews (“cutting edge”, “vivid”, “concentrated”, “musky”, “smokey acidity”, “almost-too-pungent”) suggest the cuisine’s certainly not boring, and arguably an expression of “mad genius”.
