This East End fashionista hangout is located down a side alley in hot Bethnal Green. Once you're inside, see the striking loft dining space and Manchichi bar in its post-industrial chic setting of all-white walls and floors, factory pipes, Crittal windows, and Bentwood chairs. All the men seem to wear caps, spatz, 'tashes, Trilbys, Acne jeans, or '30s-era three-piece tweed deer-stalker suits, while the Alexa Chung lookalike ladies are in capes, Emmanuelle 2 organza
get-ups, denier 10 tights, 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 from Katy Perry to Girls Aloud on the baby grand.
