About Brawn

Brawn is located on Columbia Road in Bethnal Green. A busy, local neighborhood restaurant and bar serving food that is honest and simple, within the season, and sourced through as many local suppliers and producers within our community. On Sundays when the flower market is in full swing, we cook Sunday Lunch for £25 per head. The table is filled with a selection of starters, then a roast followed by pudding. A perfect way to spend Sunday’s! Brawn opened in late 2010 to great critical acclaim receiving 5 stars from Fay Maschler in the Evening Standard, and a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2011.

Went to Brawn this weekend with visitors and can't wait to go back! More on our meal below, but first: I'm friends with lots of vege- and pescatarians, and people who aren't adventurous eaters and blah blah blah. Somehow, oddly, I'd bring them all to Brawn.

I loved dinner here.

My plan of attack was to order alot of small dishes in order to taste as much as possible.

It was all delicious and the bread and butter was hard to stop eating.

Wine list was varied and nicely priced.

Make a rez especially at dinner time lest you be turned away.more

Dinner at Brawn + post-dinner wine at Sagers & Wild = perfect date. There you have it -- in case you don't read any further, I've progressed your romantic life just a bit.

Brawn has quickly perched itself atop my "low key, but excellent dining spots in London" list. Based on two visits, I must finally divulge my thoughts on this Columbia Road pearl.

First, make a reservation or take your...more
