Where: Crudo, 120-122 Brick Lane, Spitafields E1 6RL
Fans of Soho may be familiar with Randall & Aubin, the uber cool seafood restaurant with wonderful shellfish platters, a disco ball and the opportunity to spy on passersby through its huge windows. The crown for hippest fishmongers/seafood restaurant/cocktail bar just got another serious contender with Crudo, opened on Brick Lane.
The Italian-influenced eatery is combined with a speakeasy-style bar accessible through a door at the back of a restaurant. Expect this to become a Shoreditch hit.
