The Ins and Outs of Shoreditch: June
Summer has officially arrived (sort of) and we’ve been out exploring what’s going on in Shoreditch in these summer months. The sun’s out for longer and we have more time to enjoy what Shoreditch has to offer. To help you out, we’ve made a list of the best places to check out in the area.
Restaurant of the month: Gloria
The new kid in town, Gloria, is already standing out in East London’s industrial area. Part of the restaurant chain Big Mamma Group, from Paris, this is their first venture overseas. Gloria shows us the retro charm of Italy as authentically possible with Italian produce, wine, and waiters. It’s hard to miss with its yellow exterior, ivy-covered walls and an abundance of terracotta flower pots.
Marble, 1950s chintz, pink pinstripe, patterned carpets, mirrored ceilings, and lavish candelabras collide to create a dining experience which oozes 70s decadence – this place is anything but subtle.
With an extensive menu, we recommend a few dishes that will leave you more than satisfied.
There’s the ten-layer lasagne, the lobster risotto (will comfortably feed two) and the best carbonara you’ll ever taste (in our humble opinion!), made in a giant wheel of pecorino cheese right before your eyes. DELICIOUS
Bar of the month: Tayēr + Elementary
Now, this new opening in Old Street is a big deal – and here’s why. Imagine what happens when the man who ran World’s Best Bar for four years (Alex Kratena) teams up with top mixologist Monica Berg to give you an all-day bar. Well, you don’t need to imagine; you can pop on over yourself. Located right next to Old Street, this is a bar of two halves that is definitely worth a visit.
To add to what already seems like an impressive venture, the food here is by TĀTĀ Eatery, so expect a heady mix of Portuguese and Chinese food. YUM! serving a unique mix of Portuguese and Chinese food. Fans of their food can expect classics such as their Iberian pork Katsu sandwiches with panko and shredded cabbage alongside a host of new dishes.
