Clerkenwell: one of London’s most fashionable districts, well known for its media crowd and as an area of culinary innovation. Check out The Culture Trip’s guide to the best places in the area to indulge your taste buds.

Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings

With its regal Union Jack hung above the entrance, this fabulous institution is one that you just can’t miss. This all-day bar and brasserie has a wonderfully calming atmosphere where diners can immerse themselves in the unique ambiance of the botanical gardens in the greenhouse at the back of the building. The menu is quintessentially British, with dishes ranging from a simple pan-fried seabass to a braised ox cheek served with seared bavette.

Paesan, Exmouth Market

Paesan is your no fuss answer to a hearty Italian meal, with a great wine list to match. The food here is simple, fresh and authentic with dishes inspired by traditional recipes that have been around for years and years. The thing that makes people keep coming back to Paesan though, is the constant buzz in its rustic interior, an ambiance worth indulging in. Don’t forget to check out the underground bar below the restaurant, a favourite spot for the after-work crowd.

The Modern Pantry

Owing to its exquisite fusion food and amazing service, The Modern Pantry has earned a reputation for being one of the best restaurants in Clerkenwell. Each section of the restaurant has its own character and different purpose depending on whether you are after a quick brunch or a full on three-course meal. The Ground Floor Café is a light and airy space, perfect for a casual dining experience with an informal atmosphere.
