Pizza East is one of the best casual spots in Shoreditch for an easy dinner with a few friends. The pizzas and pastas are always good, and there’s plenty on the menu, from antipasti to grilled meat and fish, to keep everyone happy. Yes, even your colleague who insists on eating a spoonful of peanut butter every hour because he wants to “stay in ketosis.” Whatever that means. The crowd’s always up for a good time in the evenings, and as a bonus for your perpetually broke friends, a meal here’s usually wallet-friendly.
