Rochelle Canteen

East End

Inexpensive, cool little restaurant in a former school on up-and-coming Redchurch Street in London's East End. Converted from the old school's bike shed, Rochelle Canteen looks out onto the grassy playground and the trees of Arnold Circus beyond.  "At 2 o’clock on a recent afternoon, a pair of dandies in full evening dress, down to bow ties and white scarves, devoured plaice with tomatoes and a green sauce, and roast partridge with pearl barley and artichokes, with every sign of enjoyment. At another table, a professorial-looking lady in black-framed glasses delivered a treatise on the history of flat-pack furniture. The menu, as much hearty as it is arty, changes regularly." [NYT] Good value, dishes no more than £6.50 -- "perfectly spiced North African lamb stew, a delicate rabbit terrine and a rich honeycomb ice cream."  Click here to learn more about Rochelle Canteen from the October 2012 NY Times review, Hidden Gems of Europe.
