Vintage French advertising posters and tongue-in-cheek taxidermy set the scene for deadly serious drinks at this American neighbourhood-style lounge from the people behind The Hemingway and The Hunter S. in Hackney. Around £8.50 (including service) secures classic cocktails such as brandy Alexander, penicillin, clover club, and a French 75 made with Prosecco. Less familiar suggestions at this hip E2 hole-up include E8 hold-up (vodka, pineapple, lime and Aperol) and joint venture (rum, Campari, passion fruit and limonata). Lager and wine appear to be afterthoughts on a menu that also has classic weekend brunch options: serviceable eggs florentine, royale and Benedict (difficult to dissect on annoyingly fiddly small plates); brisket with sweetcorn and coconut slaw; scallop and bacon rolls; Thai-style moules-frites, and a Bethnal breakfast of black pudding, bacon, sausage, poached egg and toast.
