Featured Bethnal Green Restaurants
1. Bistrotheque British, Modern restaurant in Bethnal Green 23-27 Wadeson St - E2
“This crisp, clean, chic warehouse” with “big industrial windows” in Cambridge Heath is, say fans, the “perfect, perfect, perfect spot for a lovely weekend brunch” or a “lush lunch with oysters and Champagne”. A hipster haven for 15 years, it still rates well for its “delicious food” and an atmosphere boosted by live music.
2. Corner Room British, Modern restaurant in Bethnal Green Patriot Sq - E2
Bethnal Green’s old town hall – nowadays a boutique hotel – houses this 30-seater overseen by chef, Simon Shand. Although it lacks the profile it once did, the limited feedback we received this year was all positive: in particular “the fixed price, five-course menu is excellent value for good, modern British cuisine”.
3. Joan Mediterranean restaurant in Bethnal Green 19-23 Bethnal Green Road - E1
In the former Beach Blanket Babylon premises, a new Mediterranean spot from Greek Niko Kontogiannatos, who was previously former head chef at Caravan Fitzrovia.
4. E Pellicci Italian restaurant in Bethnal Green 332 Bethnal Green Rd - E2
“You don’t come here for the food: the welcome and the banter are the main attraction!”, say fans of the Nevio family’s “buzzy” (but hipster-free) Bethnal Green greasy spoon, which is a top choice for a “simple breakfast”. Architecture anoraks will also want to examine its (listed) Art Deco interior (often used as a location for TV).
5. Verdi's Italian restaurant in Bethnal Green 237 Mile End Rd - E1
“A relaxing, high-class restaurant in an area offering mostly junk food and takeaways”; white tablecloths help set a ‘proper’ tone at this Stepney Green trattoria of about five years’ standing, which serves genuine Italian food – a particular shout-out to the pizzas.
6. Campania & Jones Italian restaurant in Bethnal Green 23 Ezra St - E2
Rustic former cowshed that’s one of the quainter diversions when visiting Columbia Road Flower Market. On limited feedback, we received nothing but good ratings this year for its Italian cooking, but the weight of custom at busy times means service can suffer.
7. Sager + Wilde Restaurant International restaurant in Bethnal Green 250 Paradise Row - E2
2017 Review: “A wine-lover’s haven, and the food’s good as well” at this “fantastic” Bethnal Green railway arch venue, by the couple behind the popular Hackney Road wine bar of the same name. “All the staff are so helpful and knowledgeable” – “not to mention the great wines available by the glass”, and “hearty, well-crafted British fare”.
10. Coupette French restaurant in Bethnal Green 423 Bethnal Green Rd - E2
Chris Moore, former head bartender at the Savoy's Beaufort Bar, has taken over the Albion pub on Bethnal Green Road, and has brought together a team of bartenders and chefs to create Coupette, which will focus on regional French drinks and cocktails; food will probably not be the main attraction, but will also be Gallic in nature, with weekend brunch in the pipeline.
