SquareMeal Review of The Modern Grill at Forge & Co

Located on the ground floor of a shared events space, art gallery and hot-desking hub, Forge & Co’s self-styled ‘canteen’ is less strip lights and dinner ladies, more hip Scandi-style hangout. The light, airy feel is echoed in a bright and breezy menu that majors on the Brit classics, with various sharing boards adding to the communal feel of the place and a grill delivering everything from steaks to Cornish sardines and flaky sea bass with skin-on chips. Elsewhere, our potato dumplings served with portobello mushrooms and shaved Mossfield cheese had a surprisingly rubbery consistency, although they scored top marks for flavour. To finish, chocolate fondant was fine, but lemon tart lacked the expected zing. With friendly staff and a dedicated Lounge for drinks, Forge & Co has pitched itself as a top Shoreditch spot for work or play.
