The Frog
2 Ely’s Yard, Old Truman Brewery, Hanbury Street E1 6QR
Latest critic review: July 23, 2016

The Frog

Adam Handling had huge success in Westminster at the Caxton Grill, but now he's set up his own spot in Shoreditch. It's a much more casual affair than before, but the food and its influences remains much the same. There's a great value tasting menu here, and the chicken butter is to die for.

"But you won’t find this level of cooking, at these prices, anywhere in Britain. High-end cooking, in low-fi surroundings. Handling has talent to burn. Catch this Frog, before it turns, inevitably, into a prince." READ REVIEW

"Don't be fooled: The cooking is more serious than in many fancy restaurants, with a focus on flavor and an appreciation of aesthetics. Simply put, the food looks and tastes great. It's modern Michelin-level food, only the stars are in the kitchen not on the wall." READ REVIEW

"Star rating is hard. In a sense, it’s incredible value for so much mucking around. Adam Handling is clearly totally dedicated and highly skilled. But tasteful? No. Would I go back? No." READ REVIEW

"One or two big punchy dishes lift a meal: 10 of them make the whole thing blend into an unrelenting mulch of flavour." READ REVIEW
