Squaremeal Review of Magpie ?

It was only a matter of time before the co-founders of Hackney’s supper-club-turned-restaurant Pidgin landed another London site. Magpie is a departure from Pidgin however, in that diners choose plates straight from a trolley, in what is a British interpretation of traditional dim sum restaurants. Once inside the Asian-inspired dining room, guests can pick pre-mixed cocktails from a trolley or exercise their legs with the full bar, which specialises in lesser-known wine varieties and fun cocktails like the Bo Diddly Rip Off, combining mescal and Hellfire bitters. Food is also served from a trolley – think cold small plates of mackerel crudo with fennel pollen, and hot dishes such as grilled celeriac with a watermelon barbeque sauce. Don’t fill up on the dim sum though, pudding options include strawberry panzaella with olive oil ice cream and pear with roasted miso custard and hibiscus.
