SquareMeal Review of VQ Aldgate

The original USP of this ultra-modern round-the-clock diner (VQ, Vingt-Quatre, geddit?) was to serve food (and booze) 24/7 – although the Notting Hill branch calls it a night in the early hours. Wherever you hole up, expect indulgence all the way, from buttermilk pancakes or eggs florentine (favourites from the all-day breakfast menu) to gargantuan burgers, grilled lobster with fries or super-sweet banoffee pie. It’s tricky to design a restaurant that feels right at any time of day, but the graphic lines and clean, minimalist feel of VQ’s outlets are on the money for both morning coffee and late-night liquor, backed by staff who are adept at shifting gear during busy periods. After more than two decades on the scene, VQ has earned its place as a neighbourhood go-to – you’ll find burned-out party girls and bright-eyed families breakfasting side by side at weekends.
