This week has seen some big changes for Story PR, namely our move to Bermondsey Street from central London. We are incredibly excited to be in this part of town and look forward to meeting all the foodies in the area – I write this having just enjoyed an incredible lunch at Pizarro, one of our new neighbours, thanks José!
The Borough/London Bridge area is known for it’s established dining scene, with favourites including Jose, Elliot’s Café, Brindisa…the list goes on…not to mention Borough Market’s ever changing plethora of vendors. We already feel at home in this verified gastro-hub.
But, there are also lots of new places popping up. Here’s a round up of the top 3 new establishments in the area, which we’ll no-doubt be visiting ASAP.
You can’t possibly have avoided the buzz that has surrounded the new neighbourhood brasserie, Edwin’s, since opening in March. Serving up a ‘seasonal approach to English produce’, the menu includes small plates, meat, fish and sides including Cured Salmon, Seaweed & Oyster Sauce and Rabbit, Polenta & Parmesan. What’s more, you can book. Hurrah!
This little, unassuming french restaurant happens to be a couple of doors up from our new gaff and we’ve been admiring it since moving in. Little did we know, Casse Croute is the brainchild of Jose GM Herve Durochat and his two friends. The 20 cover neighbourhood bistro’s name was inspired by their idea of “eating whenever you want, when you feel hungry, at the counter, between two chairs, with your hand, with the point of your knife, as long as you satisfy your palate.” We couldn’t agree more
The Bermondsey Arts Club
The adventurous team team The Bermondsey Arts Club has converted an old public toilet into this 1920’s creative hangout. The main standout features are the marble-clad bar and table tops made using the stone from the original toilet cubicle separators. If you’re not convinced yet, their speciality is negronis. Where do we sign up?
