Square Meal Review of 8 Hoxton Square ?

The chaps behind modish Soho eatery 10 Greek Steet have transplanted their successful seasonal dining concept to hip Hoxton Square, where it fits in perfectly. The small, bright space combines painted brick walls, industrial lighting and mustard pots on the tables for cutlery, plus a chef’s table in the slightly gloomy basement. Daily blackboards feature a roster of inviting dishes with fresh, perfectly balanced flavours – from briny tuna carpaccio scattered with sea purslane, preserved lemon and dabs of squid-ink aïoli or satisfying prawn and scallop ravioli in a creamy lemon-butter sauce with shavings of fennel to spatchcock poussin with white beans, bacon and spinach in a rich, cassoulet-like stew. A strong dessert list rounds things off (citrusy lemon meringue pie, for example), while the brilliant wine list includes 28 exceedingly affordable options by the glass.

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: 8 Hoxton Square

    The newly opened 8 Hoxton Square is a temple of hope for me. Memories of its big sister restaurant 10 Greek Street give me flutters of expectation, remembering the stripped back, delicious food that I won’t besmirch now with prissy descriptions. It was really very good. Longing for a taste of something I have reminisced about, finally a day presents itself where I find myself in the outer east ends of London (Shoreditch, practically another country to this West Londoner). Although it is with an open heart that we descend into 8 Hoxton Square, not all is rosy. The similarities with 10 Greek Street are but skin-deep. Functional furnishings include exposed wooden tables and chalked-up menus...

  2. The originally-named 8 Hoxton Square is the sister restaurant of 10 Greek Street, one of my favourite restaurants of 2012. This was reason enough to get me very excited about eating there, so I dragged Templeton Peck, Vicious Alabaster, Socialist Worker and The Squinting Brummie along for the ride. As with 10 Greek Street, its menu changes regularly and draws influences both from Britain and abroad giving it an eclectic feel. It’s easy to overlook the free bread basket for the table, but that would mean missing out on some delicious carbs. Some slices tasted of fennel, while others were walnutty and others dotted with chunks of sweet, caramelised onions. Vicious Alabaster and I fought over every last crumb...

  3. Taking over the former venue of Master & Servant in Hoxton Square, the team behind ’10 Greek Street’ open their second venue with an equally predicable name… ’8 Hoxton Square’. ’8 Hoxton Square’ is very similar to the design and cuisine of the successful ’10 Greek Street’. Admittedly I am a big fan of their first venue although I do concede to their (few) critics that the Soho venue can be a little cramped at peak times.
