What they say

“We offer good food and drink using common sense and good taste, delivering it with charm and precision. Much of our menu is seasonal and evolving but it’s also anchored by a few familiar classics, which we’ve been serving since day one. We aim to work mainly with suppliers of sustainable products, such as Martin Denny (forager and unfarmed produce), James Knight, and Henderson Seafood.”

Signature Dishes

Steak tartare with asparagus, ajo blanco and almonds; and strawberries and rice custard, made from rice slowcooked in soy milk.

What we say

“Ho ho ho, Bethnal Green!” people thought when Bistrotheque opened in the heart of old cockles-and-jellied-eels East London back in 2004. But they blinked and the world moved to Hackney, and Bethnal Green was the centre of the universe, and Bistrotheque was the centre of Bethnal Green. White-clothed tables in an old warehouse are what people came (and come) for, as well as the French bistro cooking and weekend brunches accompanied by live piano.
