British chef James Lowe, previously one half of the wildly innovative Young Turks pop-up dining collective alongside Isaac McHale (now at The Clove Club, another hot-ticket eatery in Shoreditch) and before that, head chef at Fergus Henderson’s St John helms this consistent 'World's Best' restaurant in Shoreditch. Elegant, pared-back white interiors with functional steel touches and Ercol dining chairs make this a vaguely industrial yet inviting dining space. The seven-course tasting menu is heavy with small-scale producers, foraged herbs and carnivorous determination (black pudding is rechristened ‘blood cake’). The Clove Club (similarly with a set menu) might have the edge for atmosphere in the evening, but Lyle’s is a particularly delightful spot for lunch, right next to Shoreditch House.
