The Clove Club

Isaac McHale, former of the Young Turks chef collective who performed culinary magic all over London before a six-month residency above the Ten Bells pub in Spitalfields, has emerged as one of London’s top talents. In 2013, he teamed with front-of-house specialists Daniel Willis and Johnny Smith to bring an ambitious, no-choice modern British menu to East London. Situated in Shoreditch Town Hall, the high-ceilinged dining room is the definition of no-frills, but the long windows welcome in plenty of natural light and the teal tiles behind the open kitchen provide a touch of color. The food, a changing five-course and extended menu focused on vegetables and somewhat unheeded British produce, could light up any room by itself. Be warned: The one Michelin star restaurant has become what is believed to be the first eatery in the UK to introduce a ticketing system, making diners pay for their food in advance. Diner must go online and pay upfront for the £65-a-head five-course menu or the £95, nine-course option. They can still choose and buy wine on the night, but if they don’t show, tough luck.
