Don't know about you, but we're loving the various mashups and creative collaborations that are currently going down around London. And one upcoming combo of creative talents in Hackney has particularly caught our eye.
Hackney cocktail bar Behind This Wall is bringing in some top talent for a series of guest chef nights, called ‘E is the magic number’. It features chefs and restaurateurs from within the E1-E9 postcodes taking over the teeny kitchen and sound
Silver Lining is the new restaurant counterpart to luxury outlet Hackney Walk’s popular Every Cloud cocktail bar. With its cozy environment and creative menu it looks like it could be just the job.
Hackneyites, get ready for “the world’s tastiest snacks” when Morning Lane’s Legs is temporarily taken over by Seb Myers and Freddie Janssen, the duo behind the upcoming Snackbar.
It’ll be the latest in their series of residencies, having already taken the helm at kitchens in The Laughing Heart and Our/London, as well as running three-day pop-up at Borough Market. All this before getting ready to open
There's no doubt that Som Saa's restaurant has been a huge success, but if you've been missing the original residency at Climpson's Arch, then you'll want to keep next weekend free.
They're heading back to the Arch for one weekend only - and on the Sunday they're joined by Smoking Goat for a double-header. On their unashamedly nostalgic menu, they'll have dishes from the original
The next pop-up to hit Hackney art and gallery space Proud East is Chit Chaat Chai, an Indian street food restaurant from Wandsworth, who’ll be settling in for the duration of the gallery's summer-long Pop-Up India event.
Chit Chaat Chai’s speciality is chaat, the small sharing plates of Indian food from which they take their name, which they’ll be serving up to visitors throughout the Pop-Up India event with a
Get down to Hackney Wick’s the Stour Space before the summer’s out, and you’ll be able to enjoy an al fresco canalside aperitif and traditional Italian food, thanks to Sood Family’s new residency.
The warehouse pop-up sees the Sood Family getting back to their Puglia roots with traditional Italian cuisine that’s been given a modern twist by Michele, a relatively new chef who’s spent the past two years working
All day dining in Hackney Downs from the Sebright Arms team
What: Saiphin’s Thai Kitchen
In a nutshell: More Thai treats from the duo behind Rosa’s, with takeaway and delivery.
Summing it all up: The unstoppable force that seem to be the Saiphin and Alex Moore are at it again, this time launching a new brand offshoot they’ve dubbed Saiphin’s Thai Kitchen, which will be dishing out lots of the Rosa’s classics from a new base in London Fields.
It’s a happy day in Hackney, as Lucky Chip has just returned to its spiritual home.
After a rather mouthwatering launch of their The Wall burger with Breddos Tacos (which was all we could think about for days - and still available), Lucky Chip is now back settling into a familiar groove at East End boozer The
We do love a good collaboration - particularly when we see neighbourhood spots working with each other to promote themselves. So the idea of The Richmond's Wine Shop Wednesdays are right up our street. Or rather yours, if you happen to live in Hackney.
This East London bar has teamed up with their neighbours Noble Fine Liquor to run a weekly special list of natural wines available to drink in-house at proper-steal retail prices. Alongside that they'll be
If you've been to Patty & Bun's London Fields spot, then there's the sad news that they're closing up shop there (on 9 Jan) - changing it into a full development kitchen.
BUT there's a new Patty & Bun opening just around the corner. It's a slightly bigger spot but it'll have the same feel to London Fields - big communal tables which can fit in around 50 people (with another 30 outside for when the weather heats
Barbershop by day, and Hackney’s tiniest wine bar by night - newly opened Enfant Terrible couldn’t be more suited to its East London location.
Headed up by the owners of the nearby set-menu-only Michelin-starred restaurant Pidgin, Enfant Terrible is “a gonzo take on the tiny wine bars of Paris” where you can “eat a tin of smoked oysters and some epoisses while drinking a bunch of wine” they say, which sounds damn
Here's an East London opening you can expect to see the critics beating a path to soon. The Laughing Heart is a new late night wine bar, dining room and offy. So far, so very Hackney. But it's the folk behind it you need to take note of.
It's run by Australian Charlie Mellor who has been working on the floor at P Franco, Elliot's, Brawn and Primeur. Head chef is Tom Anglesea who comes here via Chiltern
Plans for a European holiday this summer suddenly thrown into chaos? If you're stuck here for the duration - we've got word of a Summer Camp full of food and craft related workshops and events.
It's being hosted by At The Table - formerly known as TOAST, which is expanding its creative repertoire along with the new name. The events will all be held at Hackney's Town Hall Hotel, starting with a summer barbecue party on July
