Paradise Garage East London restaurant

Squaremeal Review of Paradise Garage ?

Chef Robin Gill’s usual stomping ground is south London, where his Clapham eateries (The Dairy, The Manor and Counter Culture) have been a roaring success with critics and locals alike. By contrast, Paradise Garage (located under the arches at Bethnal Green) has been slower to take hold, but in our experience the cooking’s among the area’s most dynamic (if somewhat divisive). Loud music sets the tone immediately: this is experimental ‘new generation’ dining, where small plates on granny’s china served by a raggle-taggle band of smiling staff beat fusty formality hands down. Nordic-influenced monthly menus sing of the seasons; a summertime visit might yield mackerel tartare with gooseberry and smoked eel jelly, quail with borlotti beans and apricot or English strawberries with smoked buttermilk and popcorn; winter might see venison tartare with preserved egg yolk. A four-course midweek lunch and weekend brunch help to make Paradise Garage even more attractive.

We weren't sure what to expect, but we enjoyed it.

Nov 2016

Having checked the menu, and called to make sure they would serve an a la carte lunch on Saturday, we were nevertheless unsure as we walked up from the tube, quite what to expect.. Would the place be heaving with a young brunch crowd queued around the block? No need for concern- this place looks and behaves like a proper restaurant. Its a modish, post-industrial sort of place that will appeal to the young clientele that we imagine comprises most of its audience in the evenings at least. There...

Wonderful food, wonderful service - what's not to like?

May 2016

I've passed the Museum of Childhood so many times in the time I've lived in London, but never once been in. They then had a Clangers exhibition and that I could not resist. The museum is filled with kids looking bored, and their parents looking at old Nintendo Gameboys and reminiscing about when they got their first one. And a life sized Robbie the Robot. So it is my kind of place. Directly opposite is Paradise Row. It is an odd sort of paradise, but the row is made up of railway...

    Emma Rose Tully :: Review: Paradise Garage | Daydreamer

    Paradise Garage is the third restaurant opening from chef Robin Gill. Unlike The Dairy and The Manor which are both south of the river in Clapham, Paradise Garage lives in Bethnal Green inside a converted railway arch on Paradise Row.

    With The Dairy and The Manor consistently delivering the most exquisite tasting menus on the planet, as soon as I spotted Paradise Garage was officially open for business I cancelled reservations elsewhere and booked a Saturday lunch sitting. As we settled in for the afternoon we were treated to a complimentary cocktail and an appetiser of pea purée, peppery radishes and paper...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Paradise Garage, Bethnal Green  | Samphire and Salsify

    Based on Paradise Row in Bethnal Green, just a few doors down from Mission, this is the third restaurant from Robin Gill – he also owns the ever popular Dairy and Manor in Clapham. It’s a really cute space with turquoise banquettes round the edge and bar stools overlooking the open bar and kitchen; there’s a slight Soho House feel to things.

    Our tattoo-laden waitress was possibly the friendliest we’ve come across; a total charmer. We opted for the tasting menu (£45) even though plenty from the a la carte sounded right up my alley...

    The Picky Glutton :: Paradise Garage review - the best value tasting menu in London | The Picky Glutton

    This railway arch restaurant will set your heart racing

    Unless you walk around London, it’s hard to appreciate just how close many of the city’s neighbourhoods are to each other. Bethnal Green has the City and Shoreditch directly on its western border, while Mile End and Stratford sit to its east. It’s therefore unsurprising that there are plenty of ‘hipsters’ and students in Bethnal Green and it’d be tempting to dismiss Paradise Garage has a gentrified folly for the former.

    This latest restaurant from the masterminds behind The Dairy and The Manor is set in an old railway arch, looking out over...

    Quiet eating :: Paradise Garage

    One of the new hip restaurants opening in London in the last couple of weeks. Run by the same cook who was at the helm of the highly rated Manor and Diary. Having been to neither of these restaurants, our hopes were built upon crowd expectations and we had high hopes of finding our own nirvana at Paradise Garage.

    First up to whet our appetite after having braved the far east (i.e. Bethnal Green) was a delightful pea mousse, wonderfully light along with lovely lightly fried potato skins. A delightful way to start the meal...

    The F World :: Paradise Garage - heaven by way of Bethnal Green - The F World | The F World

    The team behind The Dairy in Clapham and its sister restaurant The Manor doesn’t really need an introduction – certainly not by me, as I can’t really claim to be much of a regular there. I have admired the establishments from afar, and only once squeezed a business lunch at The Dairy, which I really liked but went undocumented (i.e. non- Instagrammed or tweeted) as I didn’t want to reveal myself as the shallow social-media addict showoff that I am in a work context. I mostly blame my laziness when it comes to go both West AND South of the river from my East London bubble, although I do travel when a place proves to...

    It was a rather beautiful day in early May when a group of us visited Paradise Garage to celebrate William’s birthday.

    Having wanted to visit Robin Gill’s restaurants for some time (owner of the ever-popular Dairy and Manor restaurants in Clapham), I can’t say that I was disappointed by William’s choice of venue, Robin’s third and latest venture, the ultra-hip east London “Paradise Garage” for his birthday celebrations.
    Located conveniently amongst a strip of buzzing bars with outdoor seating, perfect for these summers evenings (who am I kidding?), the restaurant is spread over two floors, but all open...
