Restaurant Review: The New Hawksmoor’s Bar
Foodies familiar with the Hawksmoor will be thrilled tohear, that following a search to find the perfect steak, the Hawksmoor has opened a bar in its original restaurant in Spitalfields.
The choice decor and lack of windows gives the bar a night club feel, and cocktails lead you in with names such as ‘gloom lifters’, ‘eye openers’ and ‘corpse revivers’ etc. The beers come from the Meantime and Kernel breweries in London in a refreshing departure away from continental tipples. Bar food includes burgers, hot dogs, fried wings, and a French dip and is all reasonably priced, with the side dish of choice being the ‘Tamworth laab’, a Staffordshire-meets-Siam combination of minced pork, coriander, chilli and garlic wrapped in lettuce leaves.
It’s good to see the Hawksmoor go from strength-to-strength.
