Fodor's Review

You'll need a GPS or a compass to find this East End fashionista G-spot and all-round cool-hunters HQ located down a side alley in jam-hot Bethnal Green. Once you're inside, see the striking loft dining space and Manchichi bar in its postindustrial chic setting of all-white walls and floors, factory pipes, Crittal windows, and bentwood chairs. All the men seem to wear caps, spatz, 'tashes, cravats, Trilbys, or '30s-era tweed three-piece suits, while the Alexa Chung lookalike ladies are in faux fur leggings, Emmanuelle 2 organza getups, shearling capes, and Scooby-Doo specs. Accomplished French and English dishes range from steak tartar, Croque Madame, and towering cheeseburgers, to cod and clams or Longhorn beef with red-wine sauce. Fashion-forward desserts like Melba toast or brioche and butter pudding stand out, and be sure to catch Xavior, the resident pianist, at weekend brunch, camping up everything from Katy Perry to Girls Aloud on the baby grand.
