Hot Spot: Merchants Tavern
Hipster chic meets high-end cool in this converted Victorian warehouse oasis. Merchants Tavern in the heart of Shoreditch offers a perfectly impressive menu and atmosphere for a relaxed dinner. The restaurant was started by Gordon Ramsay's protégée, Angela Hartnett, who's now very much a force of her own. Head chef Neil Borthwick offers up European inspired seasonal fare in the serene and moderately lit restaurant.
