What they say:

Urban Coterie is here to bring “a true celebration of British craftsmanship and culture” to Old Street. With an interior design mixing brass, timber, bianco marble and leather to soften 151 City’s Road angular edges, the restaurant bucks the trend for “unnecessarily over-complicated cooking” and instead “lets seasonal ingredients do the talking”.

What we say:

Found 17 floors above the streets of London inside one of Shoreditch’s most eye-catching buildings, Urban Coterie is the prized asset of the new M by Montcalm hotel. Come for beautiful British cocktails and biodynamic wines, in their compact walk-in bar, or settle in for dinner as head chef Martin Zahumensky keeps the focus on seasonal, unfussy food. The elegant member’s lounge mixes traditional gentlemen’s club vibes with contemporary touches, and the views looking out to the city speak for themselves.
