Setting up shop in a Hackney backstreet, Pidgin saw supperclub host James Ramsden team up with Sam Herlihy to create the kind of place that won plaudits from critics and locals alike. Pidgin has a weekly changing set menu that is about as seasonal as it gets. A perfect neighbourhood restaurant, in that you could come back week after week and never have the same dish twice, it's also worth crossing town for too.

"I go to this quiet Hackney back road with my Florence-based sister, who says it’s one of the best meals she’s had in an age, and they know how to eat in Florence." READ REVIEW

"There were nice touches: iced glasses for the sharp Cornish beer, home-made truffles rolled in crushed Crunchie bars (or possibly honeycomb), and the sense of being at a very well-catered dinner party rather than a nervous new restaurant in the eastern badlands." READ REVIEW

"And the food is terrific. Our meal – it changes weekly – took in charred baby gem lettuce with shards of crispy chicken skin, grated pecorino and a dusting of dehydrated chicken skin ‘powder’; succulent goat, braised in its own milk, with pink-middled medallions and scorched podded peas; and a tremendous warm doughnut with a jammy pickled-cherry centre, toasted hazelnuts and scoop of delicate Kahlúa-infused ‘White Russian’ ice cream."

"Beef picanha (the most prized cut in Latin America) from grass-reared, dry-aged Yorkshire Longhorn cattle was beautifully soft, and accompanied by rich and earthy flavours of coal-roast beetroot, sweet carrots and an intense jus." READ REVIEW
