What we say:
In the last couple of decades we've seen exotic Asian eateries, Latin American lairs and trendy tapas taverns turn up over the capital, but has British cuisine taken a backseat? Intimate and innovative Pidgin pothole is now hitting up Hackney with great gourmet Brit grub seasoned with a small sprinkling of international-inspired ideas. Varying week-by-week, modish and mouth-watering menus will make for a marathon of mighty meals accompanied by a flood of old, world wines and cool, crafty cocktails.
