Wright Brothers’ original Borough Market location is famous for its oysters and seafood, and their outpost out East is the same story. Think shellfish towers, lobster and prawns, or a nice piece of fish to go with some crisp white wine or champagne. It’s a shoo-in for a classy meal near Liverpool Street and the City without having to resort to one of the anonymous brasseries in the area, and there’s a small outdoor terrace for sitting in Spitalfields market without actually having to deal with the market itself.
