What Brooklyn is to New York City, Shoreditch is certainly the same to London. Located on the Eastern side of the city, this area is full of cool shops and restaurants, including The Clove Club, located in the old Shoreditch Town Hall. The menu is pretty casual, and so is the crowd. Expect wild game and seasonal produce, but also some excellent cured meats. In addition to a vegetarian menu, they also offer a five or seven course seasonal lunch menu.
