Italian and Spanish influenced food, boards of full-bodied cheeses and a wine cave. No, you’re not dreaming – these are just some of the things you can find at Darkhorse restaurant and bar, the newest addition to the ever-growing circle of superb retailers in Stratford’s East Village. Read on to find out what other delights this latest E20 arrival has to offer.
Opening its doors just over a week ago, Darkhorse is an extremely exciting addition to the area for anyone with a taste for modern European cuisine. Incorporating Italian and Spanish influenced flavours with a full, complimentary wine menu, we don’t doubt that this will be welcomed with open arms by residents and locals alike!
Guests can choose from tapas-style small dishes which range from tiger prawns with garlic and chilli to arancini (Italian stuffed rice balls) with ham and taleggio cheese. Or, why not make a proper meal of it and choose from their main course selection, which include confit belly pork, roast monkfish or onglet bordelaise (hanger steak). Stomach rumbling yet?! On top of all this there are also a wide range of sharing platters, charcuterie and top quality cheeses – the ultimate indulgence!
Once you’ve chosen your meal, the staff will be more than happy to recommend a wine pairing from their impressive ‘wine cave’, featuring vino from all over the world. Or, if you’d prefer to take the party home, Darkhorse also offers a takeout wine menu and, eventually, a delivery service for East Village residents! Not a wine fan? Don’t worry as the talented bar staff can also whip up some mean cocktails that will make your evening equally as special.
This suave eatery not only makes the perfect place for an evening meal – with weekend brunches being introduced as well as a fantastic lunch menu, this makes a great spot for a bite or drink at any time of day. Plus, come spring there are hopes of opening up a sun terrace to give guests the opportunity of al fresco dining.
