The Hawksmoor team have dipped their toes into foodie Clerkenwell with Foxlow, a restaurant and bar on the site of short-lived Scandinavian joint North Road. A raucous soundtrack blasts away in the buzzy white-walled dining room, while those wanting something quieter can head to a comfy booth in the calmer upstairs area. Given the Hawksmoor connection, there’s steak on the menu – although Foxlow feels less brash, with a mixed, sociable crowd digging into various char-grilled and slow-smoked dishes. Fish is an ideal starting point, be it fresh, zingy Brixham crab with devilled mayonnaise or punchy five-pepper squid, but mains steal the show: the 10-hour beef short-rib (with kimchi to offset the richness) and eight-hour bacon rib with maple and chilli are exemplary. To finish, go for the decadent ‘Peanutella’ pud with soldiers or try one of the inspired cocktails.
