Cecconi’s Shoreditch | All-Day Italian Dining
Who’s there? Oh, just an East London iteration of the convivial Mayfair restaurant from the Soho House family, which has brought its all-day Italian dining, from breakfast through to nightcaps, to Shoreditch’s Redchurch Street.
You’ll find it on the ground floor of the Redchurch Townhouse (a 37-bedroom boutique hotel), facing onto Redchurch Street with concertina windows that fold back in the warmer months.
Inside, Cecconi’s Shoreditch sports similar charms to the Mayfair original, with the black and white striped floor given an upgrade to mosaic tiling; simple, retro furnishings in muted sage tones; and a sleekly curving bar with art deco-style shelving stacked with Italian liqueurs and aperitivi.
Being an all-day spot, it’s a decent bet if you’re after an upmarket breakfast in Shoreditch – the Italian theme is momentarily dropped in favour of Soho House classics like the half and full English breakfasts (with the option to go veggie); eggs every which way; and pancakes with mascarpone.
But if you arrive at Cecconi’s Shoreditch later in the day, you might like to start your evening up at the bar, sipping Italian wine or a Sanguinello Sour (with Aperol, Italicus bergamot liqueur, orange and egg white). Then you’ll take your seat, either at one of the shaded al fresco spots out front, the intimate smattering of tables overlooking the restaurant at the raised entrance, or the private table at the back, curtained off from everyone else. And it’s here that you’ll feast on huge sharing bowls of pasta for the table; three types of burrata; and cured wild boar meat.
And, you know, whatever your friends are having.
NOTE: Cecconi’s Shoreditch is open daily from 8am (until 12.30am on weekends). You can find out more, and make a reservation, on their website HERE.
