Taking a cue from Eataly and Todd English’s Food Hall at the Plaza Hotel in New York, D&D–those purveyors of so many posh London restaurants–go a little populist in the cavernous 18th Century East India Company warehouse with the opening of Old Bengal Warehouse. Where once were spice traders, now there are peddlers of sundry approachable culinary delights.
Within its walls are the casual seafood destination The Fish Market, the contemporary carnivore’s delight New Street Grill (pictured), The Old Bengal Bar serving classic cocktails, and the aptly-named New Street Wine Shop. The space has an epic, industrial feel, with commissioned works from the nearby Hoxton Art Gallery. Afterwards, nip down the road to the 3 South Place Bar at D&D’s also new South Place Hotel, for a bit more saucy East London nightlife.
