Hix Oyster & Chop House
Hix Oyster & Chop House sits not far from London’s historic meat market, Smithfield. Originally a sausage factory, the Islington restaurant features wooden floors, a marble oyster bar, and tiled walls. The menu, which uses local, seasonal ingredients and reflects owner Mark Hix’s signature British style, includes Blythburgh pork crackling, savory beef-and-oyster pie, and four kinds of native oysters. The British theme carries over to the beverages, which include Hix's own brews, English wines, and numerous ciders. Conclude dinner with a cheese plate or Damson Bakewell pudding.
