This July the City sees the arrival of a stunning new destination cocktail bar and restaurant.  With innovation at its core, Silk & Grain is poised to set the cocktail world alight with its exciting menu of signature, aged and conditioned cocktails, accompanied by a sizzling British steak-focused restaurant menu.

Bringing flare to the City with its unique, contemporary design, head to the Monday to Friday venue to sip unique concoctions given extra complexity and depth by being conditioned in metal, glass and leather as well as the more traditional barrel ageing process.  Head for the ground floor bar and indulge in a City Orchard using Silk & Grain’s barrel aged Bacardi cocktail, Poire Williams, lime and apple juice; or a Moscow Mule using barrel aged vodka. Snack on highlights from the British grazing menu including Clonakilty black pudding ‘scotched’ quail’s eggs; crispy pig’s ears; British cheeses and charcuterie.

From the first floor restaurant expect a selection of different dry-aged steak cuts cooked in a Josper grill, alongside British-inspired mains such as lemon sole with garlic and caper butter; Suffolk cyder soaked, slow roasted pork belly; and heritage tomato, mint and quinoa salad with whipped goat’ cheese and beetroot pickled eggs.  A range of homemade sauces, infused butters and grain mustards will also be available.

Add to this a stylish, laid back setting and charming service and going for cocktails in the City will never be the same again.

If you love your meat, you’ll love Bones: a brand new all day restaurant from Joff and Simeon Goodman, the guys behind the fabulous organic and fairtrade store, The Grocery.

From rotisserie fare through to sharing dishes, organic wines and creative cocktails, East London eatery Bones has left no stone unturned in their quest for perfection, with a clear commitment to the quality and taste of its produce. Head Chef, Simeon, a self-confessed country boy whose mother is a professional chef, trained under The Lavender House’s Richard Hughes in Norfolk and has created a menu of modern dishes that simply let the ingredients do the talking.


Championing ‘Bones’ – defined by owners Joff and Simeon Goodman as ‘any meat on any bone’ – diners can choose from just picked, pulled or plucked fare to tear & share. ‘Bones’ include the signature Label Anglais free-range rotisserie chicken – the star of the show and enjoyed whole, halved or quartered – together with oversized T-bone steaks through to roasted racks of lamb and confit duck legs, to name but a few of the cuts on offer.

Those who suffer from food envy fear not, for a selection of dishes to share are the perfect grazing antidote to greed of the green-eyed variety. Divide and conquer a range of plates including the Tuscan panzanella salad with tomato, roasted red onions, croutons and garlic, the sautéed baby squid and potatoes with chilli, baby tomatoes and lemon or macaroni cheese with leeks. Sure to pack a punch are hearty homemade stews such as the alicuit – an occitane peasant stew made from the whole chicken and pearl barley – or the mixed-bean hotpot with hot-smoked paprika and lime. Seasonal and locally sourced, the dishes coming out of the kitchen use minimum ingredients for maximum taste.

Lighter bites include crispy pigs’ ears with tartare sauce; pan-fried skate wing with olive tapenade and toasted hazelnuts, pigeon breast salad and chicken livers with Oloroso sherry and smoked paprika, dishes worthy of a reservation alone.

Sweet teeth won’t be disappointed, either: the raspberry and black cherry cheesecake or the rich chocolate and hazelnut torte send diners on a soaring sugar rush, whilst the cheese board includes aged Pecorino, Testun in woodash and Bianco Sottobosco with white and black truffle provides the perfect finish.


Breakfast and brunch are big at Bones, too. Lazy days are positively encouraged with options for both: start the day off right with the likes of organic free-range eggs-any-way served on sourdough toast with additional bacon, smoked salmon or avocado; light and fluffy bircher muesli pancakes dowsed in maple syrup; giant fish finger sandwiches on wholemeal bread; tender minute steak with fries; or the doorstop-sized Bones Club with warm chicken and bacon.  With brunch out of the way, thoughts turn to the afternoon – and what better way to embrace the day with a ‘pick-me-up’ signature Bloody Mary, laced with chilli and rosemary infused vodka, tomato juice and a few secrets ingredients.


But man cannot live on bones alone. Cocktails are as creative as the cuisine with a selection of stylish sips that include the Monks Habit – Havana light rum, Frangelico, Cointreau and pineapple juice – the Asian Provocateur – vodka, lemongrass, lime, lychee juice and chilli – and the Everyday Tea, made with Little Bird Gin, Earl Grey, fresh lemon and sugar syrup. The comprehensive European wine list - both by the bottle and glass, and mostly organic - caters for every taste, occasion and budget, alongside a healthy range of artisan beers from Redwell Pale Ale and Samuel Smith, leaving nobody dry.


Set on two floors, against bare-brick walls and low-pendant lighting, the understated design creates the ideal setting from morning till midnight. Downstairs, the 45-seater space is the perfect place for a private party, hire an area or the whole space for anything from birthdays to launches and leaving-dos. Bones will create a special party menu just for you.


From breakfast and dinner through to weekend brunches and lazy, stay-a-while Sunday lunches, Bones is fast becoming a favourite with those who eat meat – whether braised, racked or stewed. With a reputation for second-to-none produce, Bones is a glorious showcase of what the Goodman brothers can do with the stock that lines its shelves.

Everything tastes better with Bones.

Flat Iron Cleaver hunt

This year will mark Flat Iron's second Easter in Soho and that means the return of their brilliant idea - the Easter Cleaver Hunt. Once again they've hidden 100 charm-sized mini cleavers in the shops, letterboxes and sock drawers of their neighbours in Carnaby Soho.

The hunt starts on the 18th April and runs to the end of April. Your reward for laying a hand on one of these is nothing less than a meal for two for free!

Swing by with one of the mini cleavers if you find one and get your free meal for two! This excludes any of the specials and you will have to pay for drinks… can’t say fairer than that.

Flat Iron will be running this offer until the end of May 2014.
