Cuisine: Cafe, International, Modern European
Price Point: Mains from £10-£30

From a Borough Market company to a full-blown restaurant, Crispin has an interesting story to tell.

Located on Crispin Street in Spitalfields, look out for a mini version of the shard and you have arrived. With an eye-catching roof (it’s better than it sounds,) Crispin is dynamic both inside and out. Its predominantly light-wood interior complete with hanging plants gives it some serious bohemian vibes.

Focusing on delivering sublime small plates, the menu is concise but abundant in flavour. Maybe you want to choose your food depending on what you’re drinking...? Either way, their wagyu cross rump and mushroom tartine are perfect light bites. If you can’t choose, order the whole menu (yes seriously!)

Pair your small plates with a gorgeous bottle of wine; they are experts in this department! Alternatively, go for one of their specialist cocktails which you certainly won’t find anywhere else. Saffron Honey Manhattan? That’s got your taste buds tingling.

Having walked by the building so often, we decided to book dinner for 4 there. And what a great little gem! The space is beautiful, small and light with natural materials and terrazzo - very warm and inviting. We had some nibbles (olives and smoked almonds, so tasty!). As one of my friends is getting a sommelier certification, we wanted to try the wines - biodynamic and organic ones. We had a Rioja and for the second one we went for their recommendation, and both were beautiful. The food, for me was the real star of the show - I had two veggie dishes, and they were incredibly fresh, flavoursome and satisfying. My partner had the meaty options, including some duck hearts that he loved. We also got deserts to share, and they didn't disappoint.
Finally, we had the loveliest, kindest waiter - I felt like I'm at a friend's house. So totally recommend to anyone considering going there!

My husband and I had a lovely time at Crispin last night; the service was efficient and friendly and they catered well to our dietary requests without any fuss at all. The food itself was delicious; we got the one of everything menu and ate all of it. Testament to just how yummy it was. Highly recommended.... will be looking to go back soon!

Fantastic meal at Crispin last week- the restaurant is tucked away so you wouldn't necessarily walk past it which makes it an excellent First Table candidate. Inside the vibe is great, good lighting and ambiance. Service was good and all of the waiting staff seemed really clued up on the menu and wine list which is always good to see. We went for the "one of everything" option but subbed out the celeriac croquettes for charcuterie (which was no bother for them at all and they happily accommodated). Every dish was well balanced and very tasty - the star was probably the hake and butterbean dish. Will definitely go back and also want to try the brunch which looks great!

We had a fantastic time at Crispin. The food was definitely beyond our expectations and the service was really good. It's so great that they change their menu every month so we have a lot more reasons to visit this place again.

It's a really nice place and the food is good but you just don't get enough of it. We ordered one of everything x 2 for 4 people and everyone was still hungry after. I can't complain about the quality though. The wine was also very nice.

The food was delicious and really nicely presented, we ordered the one of everything option and the waiter was very quick with bringing out the food when a plate became empty. They were great at explaining the dishes and we had a really nice experience. We will definitely be visiting again!

Excellent food. The farm butter is light as air. Could eat a bowl of it, was that good. Burrata was very creamy and fresh. Surprised by how good the veggie dishes were. Will definitely go back.

This place is excellent tucked away by Spitalfields.

The food was exceptional and we split the dishes between 3 and everyone was happy.

Service was great and place relaxed and perfect for a catch up with friends.

The food here is absolutely fantastic. Menu changes each week and always stuns with delicious items. Highly recommend the One of Everything option, which is very affordable for two.
