Morito Hackney Road

Like missing out on tickets at Glasto (again) or prostate enlargement, it’s just a fact of life that anything that opens up in Hackney will automatically be cooler than at any equivalent place in London. Everything about Morito’s second restaurant in Hackney will make you want to bring all your friends here, all the time. The Spanish food (which has North African influences) is as good as ever, and there are occasional specials from the cook’s hometown on Crete, which you should definitely order. Also, don’t miss the seafood rice when it’s on.

We like to come here for drinks and dinner when we’re in the neighbourhood. The cava’s on tap and the short list of cocktails is great, and while the brunch here is a nice change from the usual heavy rotation of avo toast places, be prepared for a two hour turnaround and a wait if you show up closer to midday.
