BlixenAn all-day brasserie found next to Old Spitalfields Market, Blixen is the fourth restaurant from Clive Watson - the man behind popular eateries The Garrison, Village East and The Riding House Café. The first of Watson's sites away from the Village London group, Blixen sees him partner up with Justin Gilbert. An informal yet stylish affair, the brasserie has an open kitchen, terrazzo-tiled flooring, mid-century furniture and enticing baby blue banquettes. Featuring options such as banana bread with whipped butter, almond milk porridge and American-style blueberry pancakes, the breakfast spread is just as appealing as Watson's other all-day brasserie, The Riding House Café - providing a great alternative to those dedicated individuals queueing for hours at the nearby Breakfast Club. Further menu options include crumbed ox tongue salad, monkfish tail with cauliflower and salsify, and rhubarb meringue roulade with pistachio ice cream. The former bank vault downstairs has also been transformed into an intimate underground cocktail bar, serving old hotel classics with an up-to-date twist, while the outside terrace has been filled with plants, cacti and flowers to create the perfect spot for some al fresco summer eating.
