Fodor's Expert Review St. John

$$ Clerkenwell Modern British Fodor's Choice

Global foodie fanatics join Clerkenwell locals for the pioneering nose-to-tail cuisine at this high-ceilinged, converted smokehouse near Smithfield Market. Here the chef uses all scraps of a carcass—from tongue and cheeks to tail and trotters—so brace for radically stark signatures like bone-marrow-and-parsley salad. One appetizer is simply crispy pig's skin with roast shallots, while elsewhere on the menu you'll find grilled lamb's heart, calves' brians, ox's liver, and tongue with braised chicory. Mine the outstanding French and Italian-focused wine list and finish with traditional Eccles cakes, Lancashire cheese, or half a dozen golden madeleines.
