The Don Bistro and Bar 1

The Courtyard, 21 St. Swithins Lane , London, EC4N 8AD

SquareMeal Review of The Don Bistro and Bar

The Don's informal sibling is tucked into a medieval cellar beneath the convivial bar. The menu is short and snappy, the food "inventive and modern" – from octopus salad with Padrón peppers, chorizo and chickpeas or an equally intriguing venison and black pudding Scotch egg with celeriac rémoulade to grilled spatchcock chicken with lemon and garlic or perhaps Galician fish pie with shrimps and tomato. There's port on the wine list of course, but also a cosmopolitan, affordable selection by the glass or carafe; the full tome is an interesting read, and leaves bonus-busting to others.
