SquareMeal Review of The Clerkenwell Kitchen

More of a daytime drop-in than a full-on restaurant, this soothing space on quiet Clerkenwell Close is what's modishly referred to as a ‘kitchen'. Limited weekday-only opening times suggest that it’s aimed primarily at locally based architects and media types, who regularly take advantage of the cafe’s neat wooden tables and sunny terrace out back. Shelves of cookbooks and a ‘homemade' ethos emphasise serious foodie intent, which shows in a modest daily roster of unintimidating lunch dishes such as watercress soup followed by char-grilled squid with roast potatoes, green beans and marjoram, plus poached pears and pannacotta for afters. Cakes, pastries and classic sandwiches on organic sourdough flesh out the offer, while drinks run from homemade lemonade to a fistful of wines. Note that the café is now open for supper on Thursdays.

This restaurant is well hidden and off a lot of peoples radars due to the location but not only is this place packed everylunch time it is wonderful in the evening. It has wonderful seasonal dishes and as it all has a home made kind of feel you feel very healthy eating here. They have a great outside space to the back for the smokers and an earthy relaxed feel inside. Well worth a visit you will not be disappointed
