Located on Old Street, just minutes from Qbic, is a brand-new restaurant – Clerkenwell Grind. We’re talking an eatery that is both charming and intimate. It’s set in a converted warehouse with a simple charm, sprinkled with Art Deco furnishings and an inventive menu.
Starters included the delicious salt cod croquettes and a succulent baked aubergine for the veggie-minded. Mains were a whole sea bream and courgette risotto, with a range of sides that tasted equally as good – the star of the show unexpectedly being the fiery creamed corn. Dessert featured a ‘love it or hate it’ white chocolate mousse with burnt cucumber – a palette cleanser that may not be for everyone.
The night ends with an excellent glass of champagne, brought to us by a wait staff who seem to love the place as much as we did. Worth grinding to a halt for at the end of a long day.
