The London Fields outpost of Elliot’s turns a busy and black bin-laden corner of Mare Street into something altogether more Kinfolk shoot-worthy. There are muted beige tones, there are ceramics and ceramicists at every table and, come summer, every wine glass is as orange as the setting sun. Like those at its Borough Market sibling, the 10-inch pizzas are chewy and the toppings, from beef ragu to aubergine and green olive gremolata, are all consistently delectable. Things can become hit and miss the bigger the plates get. But for gorgeous cheese puffs, a collection of nice leaves, and bubbling bread straight out of the wood-fired oven, Elliot’s is a no-brainer venue for love and low sulphite-led catch-ups.
