SquareMeal Review of Back in 5 Minutes

Run by the team behind the Disappearing Dining Club (a dinner-party pop-up occupying unusual spaces across the capital), Back in 5 Minutes is a permanent 30-cover restaurant hidden behind a designer clothes shop on Brick Lane. On Wednesdays, the place follows its original DDC remit – namely a three-course set dinner for sharing, served at 7pm and eaten around a communal table; expect anything from black bream à la grecque to slow-roast pork belly with braised borlotti beans and gremolata. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (from 6.30pm), proceedings revolve around a short carte featuring the likes of salt cod croquettes with spicy ‘mojo rojo’ sauce, braised beef short-ribs with root vegetable and chorizo salad, and Earl Grey crème brûlée. At other times, the space can be hired out for private parties, meetings and celebratory events.

We were supposed to eat at Town House, but due to technical problems we were sent to Back in 5 Minutes. The food was amazing - Belly Pork - wow wow wow! Staff were friendly and attentive. If you are ever in Brick Lane go to no. 224 will be pleasantly surprised
