Review on St John Bread & Wine

Start the day with soft roes on toast or pikelets with jam, enjoy an Eccles cake for elevenses, otherwise call in for lunch at St John Bread & Wine set in a converted bank building opposite Spitalfields Market. There's a bakery on site, so the bread never fails and the whole enterprise has the same forthright approach to food as its elder brother, the auspicious St John near Smithfield.

Menus are pared down to the bone, but it's hard to resist the tantalising appeal of parsley soup, potted pork or plaice and fennel. Like St John, this place revels in the less fashionable bits of beasts: duck hearts with chicory, roast fore--rib of beef with beetroot and dripping toast, for example.

For pudding, order half a dozen Madeleines, Eton Mess or strawberry sorbet with Russian vodka. And don't forget the array of half-a-dozen British cheeses. To go with the food, there's an all-French wine list with bags of choice by the glass or bottle.
