Good restaurant choices in East London?

Try St John Bread and Wine, although it maybe a bit too central for you as it is on Commercial Street. It's got a relaxed atmosphere, staff are wonderful and the food is brilliant. The menu changes twice a day (check out the website to see the style of food) with a great choice of seasonal dishes. The dishes are great for sharing, we always order a mass of dishes and share them amongst the table - a fantastic way to eat at this restaurant. I do warn you that if your friends are squeamish this may not be the best choice. I once took a few conservative food friends there for lunch and there was brain, sweetbreads and bone marrow on the menu! One last pointer, don't skip puddings here. The puddings are possible the best puddings I've ever had in restaurants.

Please help - 6 girls going to Liverpool in search of good food

Thanks Theresa - I'm putting my favourites to a vote. Thought you might like to know that Side Car looks just like St John - which I thought was amusing. They all look great - I now what to spend more time in Liverpool to get round them all. Thanks again.

Please help - 6 girls going to Liverpool in search of good food

Hi, I was hoping someone may be able to help me out on here. I and five mates are going to Liverpool for a long weekend - none of us know the city well. As the foodie of the group I have been asked to come up with the places to eat. After reading some stuff on here Salt House Tapas sounds great. I love tapas eating, especially in a group. I was also liking the sound of 60 Hope Street but can't seem to find a website. Is it still open? It seems to have closed on and off. Good lunch places would also be helpful. There are varying incomes in the group, with the lowest being a student (still!) so nothing too expensive for dinner - say £40 per head all in. If anyone could help that would be great! Just in case this helps, one of my favourite restaurants in London is St John Bread and Wine - probably a bit scary for some of my friends but the atmosphere is what I'm looking for. Thanks.
