Jones & Sons
Down a discerning Dalston side street lies this beautiful and classic British restaurant and cocktail bar.
The menu focuses on quality, well-made British food, which is all carefully sourced and prepared by their dedicated chefs. The Bottomless Brunch - listed at #7 in The Evening Standard's top 25 restaurants for Sunday Lunch - is priced at £32 for two hours of unlimited prosecco. The Eggs Royale was perfectly cooked, with lashings of creamy Hollandaise Sauce.
Everything about this venue is elegant and refined, without feeling stuffy and over-designed. The restaurant is housed in an old Victorian textile factory (also home to Cell Studios and the 200 artists and designers working inside the rest of the building) and the interior design remains sympathetic to the industrial heritage.
Food is served from a 12 foot high white and stainless steel pitched roofed kitchen, which dominates the space. Drinks arrive from a beautiful oak clad bar with a Cararra marble top and are delivered to guests sat in hand sourced mid-century Scandinavian style seating or a leather banquette which runs the length of the entire right hand wall. It's hard to believe that this space was transformed from derelict to functional in a mere 5 weeks. Jones & Sons is truly an oasis within its clamorous Dalston setting.
