Review on Lyle's

Talented chef James Lowe made his mark as one of the founding members of the 'Young Turks Collective', before setting up Lyles with business partner, John Ogier of the critically acclaimed St John Bread and Wine and backed by the Sethi family, who own Michelin-starred Indian restaurants Trishna and Gymkhana.

Located in The Tea Building, a Shoreditch landmark that was originally built as a bacon factory for Allied Foods' Lipton brand in the early 1930s, the restaurant takes its name from James's mother's maiden name. The industrial interiors have been created by British, B3 Designers in a pristine palette of neural colours, with low hanging lights and small functional wooden tables and chairs, overlooked by the open kitchen featuring a wood burning oven and charcoal grill.

Lowe has built up a special relationship with trusted suppliers for the impeccable ingredients used in his dishes. Unlike the lunch menu, when it comes to dinner guests are not offered a choice and it is presented in the shape of a tasting menu, with dishes such as mackerel and leeks; pheasant leg and celeriac; mallard, pumpkin and Brussels tops; quince and chestnuts, finishing with pear, chocolate and soured cream.

The restaurant was awarded a prestigious Michelin star in the 2016 edition of the Guide, as well as being ranked 38th in the World's Top 100 Restaurants.

Lyle's is also featured in: Michelin Guide, Hardens
