Let’s not over romanticise this too much; bruschetta or bread
and tomatoes whatever you’d like to call it was invented as a vehicle to avoid
waste. Clever cooks of yore took some
stale bread, rubbed garlic on it, and covered it with ripe juicy tomatoes and
Hawksmoor have quite successfully made
a reputation for cooking some of the best steaks in London but I’d only ever
eaten in the Seven Dials outpost before now.
Having seen a piece in TimeOut about London’s 100 best dishes I thought
I’d make the effort to check out the Spitalfields branch as well.
