Traditional English and French dishes with a side of camp
Slightly off the map in an arty corner of East London's Bethnal Green, this trendy and lively good-food restaurant got a noticeable refurbishment in 2012, with the restaurant expanded and the basement cabaret space and gin bar removed. The main floor is now open plan. The cocktail-friendly Manchichi Bar opens at 5.30pm, from 11am at the weekend. And in late May 2012 owners Pablo Flack and David Waddington spread their seed east to King's Cross with Shrimpy's — a stylish pop-up restaurant with a three-year tenancy inside The Filling Station, which took over a former petrol station overlooking the canal. Shrimpy's closed in December 2014, with the building now demolished.

    My husband & I really enjoyed this place. The food was really great, the service friendly and the crowd wasn't hard to look at either!
