Probably because it is opposite Spitalfields, I always considered it for tourists. I went there tonight with a friend for a light dinner, and we both LOVED the food here. The place is quite unassuming, looking like a bakery/diner. The plating wasn't the prettiest you can imagine, but the ingredients and flavor combinations are so surprisingly delicious. My favorite dish was Jerusalem Artichoke Salad. Jerusalem artichoke looks and tastes nothing like your normal artichoke. It is kind of a starchy root vegetable. They somehow cooked it with butter and the taste was amazing. Foie Gras and and duck liver mousse on toast was another must try. The dessert we tried needed to be mentioned as well. We had Eccles Cake & Lancashire Cheese, which was a balled shaped pastry filled with currant. It is so well balanced with the saltiness of the cheese cutting the sweetness of the filling. It makes for a perfect ending to a meal. I can't wait to come back when I am more hungry to try another dishes.Recommended for:

A true nose to tail experience. Pate, hearts, kidneys, terrines, all of the animal and all brilliant and English. I can't imagine a restaurant like this in America and it's just so unique. Be as adventurous or basic as you want to be and your meal will still be a highlight of eating in London. While the bread and wine are both top notch, It should be called St. John Eat your Meat.Recommended for:

Fergus Henderson's nose to tail cooking has become widely embraced but St John Bread and Wine is its home and the concept is excellently executed here. Staff are very informative and eating is always an adventure here.Recommended for:

if you enjoy pigs and i mean snout to tail - then this is where you should go. Unfortunately, i do not enjoy eating in this manner so its not for me. This restaurant is highly recommended but i just cant handle the brain salad or pigs feet, any time of the day or night!

Original menu without being pretentious. Fabulous foie gras toast for starters followed by melt in your mouth black angus on watercress. Lovely table wine followed by brown bread ice cream. Friendly atmosphere and they have no problem with how long you stay (we sat there all night!). Loved it. Major win for me.
