EAST LONDON RESTAURANTS: THE STRATFORD BRASSERIE IS OPENING

This month the East London restaurant scene welcomes a new brasserie located on the ground floor of Manhattan Loft Corporation’s new skyscraper – just around the corner from IQL.

The restaurant will provide an all day dining offering at the edge of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The open bar and kitchen will be run by Ben Harrington who’s gained experience in the London restaurant scene with the Soho House Group and Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s.

The accessible menu will focus on a range of sharing dishes featuring seasonal British ingredients. For breakfast, you can expect freshly baked pastries, pancakes and crumpets, acai bowls, smoothies and eggs in a variety of ways with fresh sourdough.

Throughout the day, you can enjoy pizzas baked in the Brasserie’s outdoor wood oven. The lounge menu is a relaxed affair offering up a small selection of classic brasserie dishes, small plates and sharing platters.

The a la carte menu is an extended version along the same theme, with a range of sharing sides, raw and small plates, and steaks added to the selection. To view any of the menus, visit the Stratford Brasserie website.

Inside one of the coolest new restaurants in London, you can expect a lush nod to the age of Manhattan decadence designed by Space Copenhagen. The fluidity of the menu translates into the space. Guests are encouraged to meet for coffee, smoothies, a casual lunch or a civilised dinner.

Harry Handelsman, the brains behind the Manhattan Loft Corporation, said:
“The Stratford Brasserie will be the first welcome as guests and residents enter The Stratford. It’s a place for locals to meet and dine as an alternative to the Westfield chains. The skyscraper’s architecture has been designed to encourage spontaneous interaction, and The Stratford Brasserie is at the very heart of this – it will be the perfect place for a vibrant, vertical community to thrive.”
