An East London bistro gets fresh
It’s worth searching for the understated restaurant Bistrotheque, especially if you’re in the mood for a cocktail like the Amber—a refreshing concoction of Vodka, rosemary, agave and Champagne. Or perhaps the roast chicken with chestnuts and bacon will make it worth the extra effort to find this unmarked gem. This part bar/part bistro can turn into a late-night piano singsong if you’re lucky. The vibe is bright and airy with fresh flowers abound—a lovely resting place after a day walking around the winding streets of East London. Find them (if you can) at 23–27 Wadeson Street, London E2 9DR.
