Elliot’s | Cosy, Fresh Grub Next To Borough Market
If you’re going to open a restaurant in Borough Market, it makes sense for it to showcase the market’s best craft and artisanal producers.
Which, you’ll be flooded with relief to hear, is just what Elliot’s does.
Launched by the team behind Victoria Park’s Pavilion Café, Elliot’s is a place for genuine food lovers: those who are open to culinary surprises, and who enjoy turning up to a restaurant without even half an idea of what might be on its menu that day (as it’s constantly changing, depending on the season; the available produce that day; and the chef’s mood). Typical starters include polenta, chanterelles, broad beans & pecorino or salt ling brandade with radishes & crystale lemon; while recent main courses have included line-caught mackerel with tomatoes and anchovies; plus Longhorn rump with friggitello peppers and smoked aubergine.
Push your way through the crowds of Borough Market and you’ll spot Elliot’s dark grey-blue front, with a large glass window fronting a cosy, farmhouse-style, bare-bricked interior. If you’re not sure whether or not you’re in the right place just look for the word “Elliot’s” in big, white letters – it’s a pretty good sign that you are.
The gaps between Elliot’s improvised breakfasts, lunches and dinners – you know, when the chefs are prepping, perusing produce in Borough Market and playing backgammon – are filled in with coffee, cold plates, cheese and cured meats. So feel free to turn up at any time, relax and enjoy a helping of fresh, locally sourced food.
And maybe a game of backgammon.
NOTE: Elliot’s is open Mon-Sat, 12-10pm. You can make a reservation on their website HERE.
