St John Bread & Wine

94-96 Commercial Street, LONDON, E1 6LZ

1 rosettes

The name sums up the back-to-basics approach in this operation near Spitalfields Market, a canteen-like space with whitewashed walls, old wooden furniture and an open-to-view kitchen and bakery. Expect unfussy and robust dishes, driven by flavour and quality seasonal produce, including lesser-known cuts and ingredients such as pig's head stew, or blood cake and duck egg? There's no truck with three-course convention, just small and larger plates, so sharing is encouraged. Start with devilled duck hearts on home-made toast, or skate cheeks with tartare sauce, and proceed to pheasant and trotter pie. Breads are exceptional, and for pud, try Eccles cake and Lancashire cheese, or date loaf and butterscotch sauce.
