St John Bread and Wine

94–96 Commercial Street, Spitalfields, London E1 6LZ

Sitting across the road from Spitalfields Market, St John Bread and Wine is an offshoot of Fergus Henderson’s well-known nose-to-tail restaurant in Smithfield’s Market. The whitewashed former bank now houses a bakery, wine shop and eating place. The menu is simple, and the stress is on sharing food in a group: mix and match with dishes such as Jerusalem artichokes, red onion and rocket; mussels, cider and dulse; and foie gras and duck liver toast. The breakfast menu might offer an Old Spot bacon sandwich; for elevenses try a glass of Madeira and one of St John’s legendary Eccles cakes. British cheese is another speciality.
