Fine dining has always been synonymous with a sort of etiquette. White table cloths, black tie, a sense of formality rather than an experience. What we like immediately about Pidgin is its fresh and beautifully plain approach to fine dining. As a cosy restaurant in London Fields with a compact menu, there is no room for theatratics. Pidgin’s offers a tasting menu that combines seasonal produce with Asian flavours. A pleasant experience but we thought the vegetarian tasting menu lacked central focus on vegetables. It was a mere effort to turn its meat alternative into a veggie option which sadly does not always work.
Pidgin is now running their new Homing Pidgin service. A frequently changing 3-course meal is available for collection Wednesdays to Sunday. Home reheating instructions is provided. For those unable to leave the house, a limited delivery service can be provided to locals if arranged in advance. Their wine list is also available on their website.
Fine Dining, Trendy, Romantic
We say go with your date as this is as cosy and as it gets. Food sadly is not a bold creative take on plant-based eating but they still win our points for the quality and setting. We think it is a kind of a nice treat and almost exclusive to those who live in the neighbourhood.
