SquareMeal Review of Oriole

Beneath the market action on evocatively named East Poultry Avenue, this converted pub is a “cool” bar for our times. From the team behind Nightjar, Oriole promises a subterranean world of indeterminate provenance, but suffice to say it’s a little bit retro, a little bit glam, a little bit pan-Asian, and a fun place to hang out. Style is important here, evidently, and the “heavenly” cocktails look stunning in their assorted serving vessels: Kiruna is a Lapland-inspired number that brings together the stonking Absolut Elyx vodka, cloudberry jam, aquavit mead and root cider, while it’s off to Zululand for Umckaloaba – based on Mount Gay Black Barrel rum and tasting like the best adult dessert you’ve ever had. If you want food proper, a menu of globally inspired small plates awaits; tamarind-glazed steamed pork buns, ceviche, a burger with kimchi coleslaw… that sort of thing.
