London already has a load of new terraces and outside spaces this summer, but Bourne and Hollingsworth have several killer USPs that they're banking on to make their new Hoxton summer experience, Beautiful Allotment, a must-visit. To start with, guests who book their summer countryside takeover of the gardens at The Geffrye Museum will be able to kick things in proper Countryfile style, getting picked up in a tractor pulling a vintage trailer complete
Adam Handling's empire is expanding still further. Hard on the heels of the news that he'll be running the food side of things at the Belmond Cadogan Hotel, now we hear that his first restaurant Frog E1 is upping sticks and moving to Hoxton. He'll be taking over the old Byron site on Hoxton Square from this summer.
Here's what we know so
Picture the scenario: you've been given the job of booking a restaurant to celebrate someone's birthday. But you're looking for something a little different - something to make the whole evening stand out. Well, we think we may have found what you're looking for.
Orange Buffalo at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen have ditched the traditional cake for birthday celebrations and replaced it with... a chicken wing birthday cake.
The ‘cake’ turns out to be a
If you want the best egg pasta in Italy, so they say, you have to go to the Emilia Romagna region where it was created. But if you can’t *quite* justify getting on a plane yet then Hoxton Square’s new Italian Via Emilia looks like the next best thing, and in traditional Italian style, they’re keeping it ultra simple with eight pastas, one pudding and a wine list that’s short but sweet.
If you like a slice of culture with your Emmental then good news - the London Cheese Project is headed east, to the Hoxton’s Geffrye Museum.
The grounds of the museum will be transformed into, and we quote, “cheese nirvana” during the two-day festival, which will see 20 cheesemakers, cheesemongers and traders out in force. It’ll be the first time the festival has moved from Camden Market, where it launched
There’s something deeply enjoyable about halloumi, from the weirdly pleasing squeaking noise to the overwhelming salt hit, and of course, the knowledge that you’re essentially just eating a pile of cheese. Plus, it just looks so good on camera - you could hardly swing a cat on street food Instagram this summer without hitting a flat-lay of breaded-halloumi fries.
Cocktail bar blends seamlessly with restaurant - we Test Drive Mr Lyan's Cub.
“We want to keep pushing boundaries,” said Mr Lyan about his new concept bar and restaurant. No problem there then - his new restaurant uses very (and we do mean *very*) creative ingredients in a special all-in-one kitchen and bar, reducing waste and keeping guests on their toes. Expect ambergris, Japanese knotweed and smoked compost carrot on the weekly changing menu.
Former streetfood stall becomes a Hoxton Jewish Deli
What: Number 177 Bar & Kitchen
In a nutshell: Hoxton meets Berlin in this venue for food, drink, art and music
Summing it all up: With an emphasis on animal-free and gluten-free dining, plus a few burger and craft beers on tap, graffiti and a gallery, Number 90 Bar & Kitchen does a good job of transplanting a slice of of ultra-hip Berlin culture onto Hoxton Street, craft beers and all.
They've been a staple at Maltby for a while now, but Monty's Deli are finally making the leap to a permanent spot. Comforting chicken soup, salt beef sandwiches and other essential Jewish soul food will be available at their all-day Jewish diner in Hoxton.
Not only will there be more pastrami, salt beef and pickles than you can shake a stick at, but Monty’s Deli will have a thoroughly traditional vibe with food
Now this sounds just lovely - particularly as the weekend get a little brisk.
From next weekend, Hoxton's Petit Pois is starting their own take on a Sunday lunch. At the heart of the menu will be the slow cooked beef bourguignon for sharing. The beef, from Nathan Mills at The Butchery in Bermondsey, is slow cooked in red wine for four hours with mushrooms, shallots and thyme, before being covered in buttery puff pastry. And
There's a new pizzeria hitting Hoxton. Radio Alice, named after an Italian pirate radio station, is taking over the spot where Monikers was on Hoxton Square. It's the brainchild of brothers Salvatore and Matteo Aloe, who already have five well-respected restaurants in Italy.
The thing they do differently is, after having made their pizza dough from mother yeast and ancient stoneground flour, they cook the base, slice it and only then add the
Hip Hoxton marks a return to traditional bistro cooking with the arrival of Petit Pois on Hoxton Square
A new French bistro has come to Hoxton backed by people with pretty impressive bar experience. They're the ones behind bars Happiness Forgets and Original Sin, Alastair Burgess and Chris Smith. Called the Petit Pois Bistro (alas, not a restaurant dedicated to petit pois), it's aiming to bring the feel of a "cosy French bistro" to Hoxton.
The food will be by Chris Smith himself, who has had a career
