  • Som Saa return to Climpson's Arch for one weekend and they're bringing Smoking Goat

    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

    What: Saiphin’s Thai Kitchen

    In a nutshell: More Thai treats from the duo behind Rosa’s, with takeaway and delivery.

  • Lucky Chip at Hackney’s The Sebright Arms is back

    It’s a happy day in Hackney, as Lucky Chip has just returned to its spiritual home.

    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

  • Patty & Bun's latest Hackney spot is on Richmond Road

    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

  • Hackney’s got a new smallest wine bar, thanks to the Pidgin duo

    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

  • The Laughing Heart late night wine bar opens on Hackney Road

    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

    A new bakery is opening in London Fields that sounds VERY interesting.
