Iron Bloom Restaurant in Shoreditch

The Iron Bloom Concept

Restaurant in Shoreditch

Iron Bloom is located in the heart of Shoreditch, named after the former iron factory on Great Eastern Street. It still retains some of the original features giving the restaurant an industrial and quirky look. Make sure you check out the lift shaft which houses the DJ booth!

Brought by the creators of the Looking Glass Cocktail Club in Shoreditch which I love, I knew Iron Bloom would be great. You can tell a great deal of thought has gone into the British inspired menu, predominantly made of small sharing plates but with a couple of larger dishes too.

Food and Cocktail Pairing

Iron Bloom restaurant in Shoreditch takes classic British food, deconstructs the dish and recreates it with quirky dishes. Each of the small plates suggests a pairing cocktail – a nice touch. We had the Limanescapade: Pisco shaken with homemade mango,  pineapple & rosemary, lime and egg white paired with the  Lobster Doughnut, Gruyere cheese, chorizo, chipotle ketchup, shallotsWe also had the Bitter Aperitif: Campari base, mix of lemon & orange juice shaken with homemade mango &pineapple syrup with a touch of aromatic bitters; perfect with any nibbles.

Small plates wise we had the Oxtail Croquettes: Celeriac remoulade, crispy chorizo, raisin purée and the Guinea Fowl Pudding:  Chestnut mushrooms, brie, Yorkshire pudding which were two of my favourite dishes! I love most things in a yorkshire pudding to be fair.

We just about had room for the Dark Chocolate Delice with Baileys cream, milk crumble, hazelnuts. This was paired with Flambé Cocktail which was a show in itself – definitely add this on!
