The Hoxton Grill, Hoxton, Restaurant Review
I was reading a review of the Hoxton Grill which was published a while back in Time Out, which said that the restaurant was a great option for a night out with friends, but not so good for a civilised meal with parents. Funnily enough, on the evening I visited, sitting at an adjacent table to us were a group of people who were obviously Mum and Dad, and two offspring, clearly enjoying a grand night out. Things have clearly changed here so that it caters to both the groovy and the granny.
Having said that, the eaterie which is in the Hoxton Hotel, is an ultra-cool place to take friends for that Shoreditch experience. The décor is New York-style exposed brickwork and slick, deep red banquettes, which reminded me of Grace Jones’ disco classic Warm Leatherette.
The place has a lively buzz and while you’re waiting for your food to arrive, you can watch the chefs prepare dishes at the open kitchen which looks on to the seating area.
I tucked into some great chicken wings, jalapeno chipolatas and Cajun wedges with sour cream. It’s a classic American grill, and while I was tempted by the New York strip and jerk chicken, and took a different turn and ordered the shrimp burger. I’d recommend it to anyone who was swearing off red meat for a while. The shrimps were a good size and very tasty, complemented by a creamy coriander sauce. Veggies are well catered for, and I was pleased to see some excellent options such as pea, mint and gorgonzola risotto.
If the weather has rained off your BBQ, it will be a treat to head here for some great grilled meats, cooked to perfection without having to get smoke in your eye. (Angela Clerkin)
