When in London, we always make a point to stop at Soho’s Kiln, so we recently headed across town to try its Michelin-starred sister restaurant in Shoreditch. BRAT’s cuisine is Basque-inspired and if you love simple, fresh seasonal food, it’s tough to choose what to order.
Located up a narrow flight of stairs of an industrial brick building, BRAT’s rustic open dining area features long communal tables surrounding an open grill. They take reservations but also reserves space at the counter bar for walk-ins. We recommend sitting at the counter if you want an excellent view of the grill. Immediately, we took note of the restaurant’s signature burnt cheesecakes lining the ledge next to the grill and two whole turbots being cooked over the flames.
