Shoreditch at its most elegant, Rivington Grill delivers a ‘very solid performance’, eschewing faddishness in favour of smart, trendy dining. Cool locals feel right at home in this classily
appointed eatery, Tracey Emin’s neon artwork isn’t about to shock anyone and the ‘well-constructed’ menu deals in Brit-sourced favourites – plus a few ‘bragging rights’ items such as gull’s eggs. A
perky plate of seared Cornish squid spiked with lemon and chilli relish might precede a sticky, suet-rich chicken, ham and leek steamed pudding or a delicate piece of lemon sole with brown shrimps,
spinach and sea purslane, while satisfying puds include rich chocolate pot with blood orange. ‘Fishy Fridays’ live up to their billing and you can BYO wine on Mondays (£5 corkage) – although the
well-judged wine list offers plenty of possibilities by the glass.
Now, Rivington Grill, as the name implies, is known for its grilled meat. Yes, the burger's patty grilled too but that's hardly the same. But AR was so drummed up about the Rivington Luxury Burger (£12.95) that I had to order that. Frankly, I would be sorely disappointed if I had not gotten a burger by the end of that day.Rivington luxury burger wasn't on the menu itself, instead it was among the many "specials" on the board behind the bar. The truth is I would most certainly have missed it if not for AR pointing it out. Perhaps the burger is for folks who stumbled into the restaurant not knowing any better?...

Rivington Grill was next on the list. We went to the one in Shoreditch, based on a few recommendations and Nick has also been to the one in Greenwich before.It’s not a bad looking restaurant actually, pretty much date material. Not weird for Nick and I however as we’re past all that. Off topic slightly, but its up the road from Tramshed, so if you are going on a date, go there (see we not only benefit your burger knowledge, but your lifestyle too)...

Rivington Grill is owned by Richard Caring, he of Caprice Holdings who also own The Ivy, J.Sheekey, Le Caprice etc. Sounds impressive but Rivington Grill and The Ivy both actually have the same philosophy: great British food at reasonable prices. And thats exactly what you get here, a really solid menu which delivers great quality food every time and really doesn't break the bank. I love the vibe at Rivington too, relaxed but with shades of formality, a bit clubby maybe? Yeah that's probably it. I would be happy just sitting at the bar having a drink, its that kind of place...
