Once the typing pool for Bethnal Green’s old Town Hall, this aptly named restaurant is now a chic, modernist space combining polished marble-topped tables, parquet floors, charcoal-grey walls and an open kitchen. Chef Lee Westcott delivers sleek, Nordic-inspired cuisine using a wealth of top-drawer seasonal British ingredients – a prospect that appeals as much to the eye as the palate. Although the food is based around multi-course ‘degustation’ menus, diners report there’s “no pretentiousness” here; instead, expect “amazingly presented” plates ranging from intensely savoury yeasted cauliflower with raisins, capers and mint to a Scandi take on steak tartare involving turnip, oyster and moss. Bigger ideas get our attention too – notably the mackerel with strawberry grapes, burnt cucumber and quinoa, and a stonking autumnal bonanza involving roe deer, beetroot, cabbage and blackberries. It’s also worth shelling out for individual wine pairings from the extensive list. “Ideal for an extra-special treat, especially with the Peg + Patriot bar so close by”, sums up a fan.

Not giving too much away, there’s plenty of room left for the imagination. For me, the menu speaks for itself and reads attractively – I was immediately...
