This wonderfully versatile, brasserie-style restaurant in Shoreditch comes from Clive Watson, previously of Riding House Café and Bermondsey’s Village East fame. Much like them, Blixen is an all-day sort of place, where the local workforce might come for a breakfast or lunch meeting in one of the leather booths, or crack open a laptop at the long bar table, while others might take advantage of the stellar cocktail list and bistro-style dishes—served in conveniently shareable small plates, of course—and make the night of it. Adding to its versatility is the cozy, wood-clad private dining room for 18, where you can choose your set menu ahead of the event.
