Cocktail Time

We started off with a couple of house cocktails which are on happy hour 241 from 5pm-9pm. They were made to perfection by the wonderful bartenders, Stefano and Max. We had the Snowglobe – spiced rum,, homemade autumn syrup, milk and nutmeg. We also sampled the Berries & Me – gin, fraise, homemade basil syrup, lemon and prosecco, which was fresh. The best thing is that the bartenders will make you what you want off menu and mix it up!

The Food Menu

We could not resist trying a couple of the dishes from the snack menu – the Red Pesto Arancini was delicious and the Peppers, Salted Cod and Saffren Aioli were really flavoursome. On to the starters we were spoilt for choice with so many fantastic dishes. We ended up deciding on the Scallop, Cauliflower and Bergamot and the Honey Glazed Smoked Pork Belly and Kahirabi. The scallops were huge and all the way from Orkney and the pork belly was one of the best I have ever had. The glazed honey was absolutely perfect.

I do not normally choose chicken on a menu as I have so much at home but the Grilled Lemon Verbena Chicken came highly recommended. It had been marinated for 48 hours, cooked on the bone and then sliced. I was certainly not disappointed – the chicken was so moist and flavoursome.  I recommend the sweet potatoes, tahini yoghurt and pomegranate as a side dish. The Beef Bavette, bacon pudding and delica pumpkin was also a winner!

Last but not least we just about squeezed in a Lemon Tart with Ricotta and Sour Cherry Ice Cream. It was much better than your standard lemon tart as it was blowtorched on the top like a creme brulee! It melted in your mouth and the ice cream really complimented the dessert.

If you do not have time for a longer meal then check out the Treves and Hyde express lunch. You can get 2 courses for a bargain price of £15 or £20 with a glass of house wine.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience – great food in a non pretentious atmosphere. The staff were super friendly, happy to recommend dishes and have a real laugh with you, which added to the overall experience. Definitely a restaurant in Aldgate to visit.
