Les Trois Garçons
A restored circa-1880 pub, this Shoreditch restaurant and lounge is where London's beautiful and moneyed sup. Tall ceilings, wood paneling, elaborate chandeliers dripping in jellyfish-like tentacles of crystal, and a menagerie of taxidermy animals characterize the hotspot, opened in 200, by Hassan Abdullah, Michel Lasserre, and Stefan Karlson. French cuisine is served with a contemporary English twist and local ingredients. Options include cured venison carpaccio and roasted local Landroc pork belly and shoulder with pea-and-ham croquettes. Wines are from the owners' private cellar.
