‘A great place to hang out’, this buzzy New York-style eatery from the duo behind the Pavilion Café at Victoria Park is aimed squarely at Borough Market’s foodie throngs. A massive communal table holds centre stage in the dining room, which features scruffy yellow brick walls and great views of the bustle outside. On offer is a tidy selection of regularly changing, provenance-driven dishes, although specials can run out quickly and latecomers may be left with thin pickings. Snacks of pig’s head cromesquis with home-baked bread might give way to devilled ox tongue, crab on toast and bigger plates of monkfish with chickpeas and leeks or Middle White pork with cabbage, pear and chervil salad. ‘Afters’ are mostly cheeses, cakes, ice creams and sorbets, while the drinks list runs from artisan beers to an oddball selection of wines.
