SquareMeal Review of The Jones Family Project



“I love the space” declares an advocate of this multifunctional bar-restaurant, which fuels Shoreditch’s creatives from breakfast until bedtime. The ground-floor bar acts as a café/workspace (with plug sockets) during office hours, but at night the cases holding teas and coffees behind the bar swing around to reveal spirits. Diners head for the huge basement, which feels cavernous when quiet. Here, a carefully edited menu of international crowd-pleasers awaits. To start, spiced crispy squid with chilli pepper sauce and lime mayonnaise is a masterclass in texture and tang. The Josper grill dominates main courses, working its magic on meat from the renowned Ginger Pig butchery, including prime steaks and rump of spring lamb. Fish specials are cooked daily, while weekends bring brunches and roasts. Correspondents report variable service, so best use any waits to peruse the wine list where the impressive choice includes more than 25 by the glass.

3 of us had Sunday lunch here. I love the venue, it’s huge, with lots of different spaces and styles. It was very quiet, but I put this down partly to it being an unusually sunny day, everyone wanted to be outside, not in, tucking into a roast (apart from me). There were only about 15 people there the whole time we were, I hope that they are busier during the week because we will definitely be back. The staff were all very friendly and the 80’s playlist made our day – we had great fun singing along to Mel and Kim, Kim Wilde, Bon Jovi and many more. Now onto the important stuff – the food and drink. We ate the following – Crab and avocado and crispy toasts (lots of lime, delicious), cheddar croquettes (not really a starter but we couldn’t resist), followed by the roast chicken with all the trimmings (everything cooked perfectly and excellent quality), a fillet steak and chips (again superb meat), and the burger with Oxtail (the only time we have left chips on a plate, we were all stuffed). We had a really nice bottle (or two) or Rose to celebrate what felt like one of the last days of summer, and then after a suitable break we finished off with a passion fruit cheesecake and boozy eton mess (the gin soaked strawberries certainly packed a punch). I look forward to a return visit.

Last week I was lucky enough to enjoy a breakfast meeting at The Jones Family Project in Shoreditch. What I quickly learnt was that this was much more than just a restaurant but rather a multi-faceted social space. The restaurant was formed by 4 close friends with the aim of creating a unique space where people can relax and enjoy good food and drinks in a comfortable environment. What is really exciting about this venture is that it is constantly changing and evolving, so both new customers and loyal regulars are always going to experience something slightly new. As we went at breakfast time we ate upstairs, which had a very colourful and open vibe. It was a welcoming space with intricate, cool details throughout the room, there was something to always point at and talk about. Interestingly at the front of the restaurant there is a 'private office for one' supported with a printer and throughout the restaurant there are sockets to charge laptops thus showing how the project encourages a working atmosphere. This is really a versatile space for people to work in, eat or just relax. Let me move onto the food before talking you through downstairs. I ordered a delicious plate of Free Range poached eggs on wholemeal bread and a side of Ginger Pig bacon. The eggs were cooked to perfection that once cut into oozed out yolky goodness. But the bacon was the real winner on the plate! I usually don't order bacon, as I fear it will be undercooked and too fatty, but it was recommended to me so I could hardly refuse. It was ridiculously crispy and flavoursome, honestly I would return for the bacon alone! After breakfast we walked around downstairs, which had a completely different vibe to upstairs. It was darker and in a sense a lot more formal. The lower level restaurant focus’ on carefully sourced, high quality ingredients, and from peeking at the menu I would say there is a strong emphasis on meat. There are many different choices of seating areas downstairs whether you prefer orange leather chesterfield style sofas of cut out doll house style booths or even more private alcoves the restaurant facilitates all of this. It is the perfect space to rent out for parties and there is even a ‘stage set area’, which changes regularly where guests can rent out for the night (£35pp) and enjoy a one of a kind private dinning experience. I am already planning my next trip, this time for dinner, as I want to indulge in the extensive dinner menu, which looks incredible. So whether you want a quick breakfast, an indulgent dinner or just a drink makes sure not to miss The Jones Family Project as it is a really special place that is uniquely one of a kind.
