Brat at Climptons Arch
374 Helmsley Place
The first Brat in Shoreditch is a fabulous restaurant and this outside residency at Climpson’s Arch delivers everything we have come to expect from this incredible team. The food is spectacular, the wine list interesting and thoughtfully built, and the atmosphere in this covered and heated outside space is truly terrific. If you can get a table, go. Take some friends and share as much as you can. Highly recommended from this latest trip are the anchovy bread, a puffy and salty delight, the John Dory cooked to perfection, ditto the fritto mist, and you can’t go wrong with a langoustine, bean, and blood sausage starter with delicious smear of green sludge on top. But the true star is the burnt cheesecake with rhubarb scarfed in seconds alongside an espresso martini made with Climpson’s very own coffee.
