Most unions mean purchasing a new outfit and spending the weekend at some sad manor house in Sussex. Don’t worry though, no fascinators are needed at the marriage of Bottles and Sood Family. Bottles is a wine bar on the edge of Spitalfields Market, and Sood is a pop-up pasta specialist that used to occupy a spot in the Spitalfields Kitchens. At £12.50 for a plate of spaghetti all’amatriciana with crispy guanciale, the pasta is perhaps a little more expensive than some other specialists, but this a different beast. It’s a dark and woody affair, and with wines ranging from £5.50 to over £20 a glass, there are plenty of options for all budgets, and servers are more than capable of pointing you towards something that’ll nicely compliment the food. There’s also a terrace that you can settle in whilst watching Old Spitalfields Market go about its business.
