Fodor's Expert Review Blixen

$$ The City French
Within a magnificent Kew Gardens–style tropical garden and plant conservatory, you'll find this stylish brasserie backing out onto Old Spitalfields Market. Housed in a converted former Victorian bank, Blixen offers evergreen European comfort food. You'll find options like like squid, saffron, and chorizo or mushroom papardelle with semi-soft Taleggio cheese and hearty greens on its short, sweet, and inexpensive menu. There's neat blueberry pancakes, potato rösti, or a raclette-rich Croque Madame for breakfast and brunch. Check out the small, nautically themed basement cocktail bar.
