Rita's Bar and Dining
Some pop-ups are so good, they stay up
This typically hip East London venture co-owned by Jackson Boxer of Brunswick House previously had a residency at Dalston bar Birthdays, and is now permanentlylocated in London Fields. The menu has comfort food from around the world, so you’re just as likely to find buttermilk fried chicken as meatballs Marinara and corn tortillas with braised lamb.Other indicators of hipdom: loud music and the odd celeb like Bianca Jagger casually munching on bavette with chimichurri.
Even dudes need feeding...
Standard comfort food is given a new twist at this diner with bold flavours from around the world. There are lamb ribs with harissa, fried chicken and waffles with sausage gravy, and bavette steak with chimichurri. Popular with Hackney hipsters and the occasional celebrity.
