  • Time Out

    Time Out Says…

    With its unfinished brick and concrete walls, low lighting, french grey-painted plank ceiling, red leather banquettes and lively open kitchen down one side, evoking a sort of chic US railway car diner, the spot easily delivers on atmosphere...each classic dish is well-thought-out and composed of good ingredients: French fries are thin and crispy, but made of flavourful potatoes, even a simple bibb lettuce and avocado salad was enlivened with finely chopped chives and tarragon, so it actually tasted of something. Wash these down with a vast range of cocktails or wine.

    Square Meal Says…

    The long, vaulted room pays homage to the New York diner – complete with leather booths and a long, kitchen-facing bar done out with the group’s trademark finesse and good taste. The menu, compiled with help from high-end diner Au Cheval in Chicago, is the real deal. Excellent hot dogs come in a soft, sweet brioche bap, double cheeseburgers can be pimped with a thick rasher of bacon, and hoppy American ales are the pick from an excellent beer list.

    The Electric Diner, is really the London outpost of Brendan Sodikoff’s award-winning French-American diner “Au Cheval” – famous, they say, for serving up Chicago’s best burger. Aesthetically, the Big Three are all ticked off - exposed brickwork; industrial-style lighting; red leather banquettes – but it’s the food that takes centre stage...In summary: wear loose clothing, eat well... and then roll yourself into one of those big, leather, footstool-paired armchairs in the cinema next door to recover.
