St John's

Thought we'd pop a post about new style of resturant hitting London - St John's. We at Mr Willows are yet to try it but a friend of ours has been a couple of times - see her blog " Never Eat Wobbly Jelly".

St John Bread and Wine is located on Commercial Street opposite Spitalfields market, in what used to be a bank. As sister restaurant to St John in Clerkenwell, you can expect good things. The menu features equally meaty dishes as its associate, such as roast pigeon with a cress and pickled walnut salad, or tender braised rabbit. The bread here is also particularly good, as it's baked on the premises to ensure exceptional freshness and quality. They are renowned for their 'traditional' recipes and old skool favorites like Pigs trotters and Ox's heart etc.. there will always be one dish on the menu that'll raise an eyebrow!

The other unique thing about this resturant is that they change the menu according to the time. so at a certain time they'll start certain dishes, and they'll only be so many, so if they run out they run out & you have to choose something else. It's all about the food & quality, you'll also find that your waiter / waitress will be also one of the chefs... and they'll know exactly what's on the menu!

It's an experience to eat here and definatley worth a visit. It has a feel of canteen crossed with a British Tapas as the food comes out when it's ready & not always at the same time.
