The Frog

££££

This new Shoreditch spot is the third in The Frog family. The second, and most grownup branch, is still going strong in Covent Garden, but the first, on Ely Yard, just off Brick Lane, is now metamorphosed into this new, slightly more refined Frog. It’s got a massive frontage on Hoxton Square, a large open kitchen, a separate whisky bar downstairs (and café round the corner), and a menu filled with the same wild and wonderful flavour combinations, and fresh takes on fine dining that we loved at the first spot. We still can’t completely get on with the graffiti on the walls, but it’s casual, fun, and - most importantly - the mac and cheese is still the best we’ve ever had.
