Fodor's Review

Up from The City, near Clerkenwell and Sadler's Wells contemporary dance theater, is Exmouth Market, a cluster of cute indie shops, bookstores, vinyl stores, artisan bakeries, an Italian Catholic church, and more fine indie-spirited restaurants like Moro. Lovingly nurtured for over a decade by husband-and-wife chefs Sam and Sam Clark, the menu includes an expansive mélange of Spanish, Moroccan, and Moorish North African flavors. Flavor-packed and rustic tapas—like baba ganoush eggplant dip, Syrian lentils, baby squid with harissa, or ox heart tabouleh—compete with spiced meats, Serrano ham, salt cod, and seared char-grilled offerings. Wood-fired sea bass with hispi cabbage, grilled lamb with aubergine, or sea bream with chickpea salad are among the standout mains. Sidle up to the long zinc bar, or squeeze into a tiny table and lean in—it's noisy here, but then again that's all part of the buzz.
