Based in buzzy Hoxton, 100 is the place to be if you are looking for high-end cuisine on a high street budget. They also have their second edition of the 100 family not to far away in Upper Street, Islington. With an asian inspired menu and a long list of innovative drinks, 100 tick all of our boxes.
The décor is hip and on trend, with white exposed brick walls, drop lights, and abstract prints both mounted on the walls and on their tables, the furniture is a mix of soft couches, bar stools and chairs. Outdoor seating is also available if you prefer to dine alfresco. A giant bar sits in the middle of the restaurant with wine glasses & liquor hanging above you, boasting their bountiful selection of wines, champagnes and spirits.
Their menu is imaginative and original, with a unique blend of flavours that complement each other well. 100 Hoxton have an a la carte, lunch, and brunch menu, you will be absolutely spoilt for choice here. We recommend the Pan-Fried Duck Breast with almond beer butter, south almonds, and kimchee. If you have room for dessert the Cardamom Shirkhand (an Indian sweet dish made of strained yogurt) with kumquat and orange shortbread is to die for. There are also small plates to choose from, ideal for sharing and for those who may be feeling indecisive. They also have a good selection of vegetarian and gluten free dishes, so they try to cater to everyone.
P.S. They have a brilliant introductory early bird offer, a 5 course menu for £15!
Saving the best until last, drinks! Their cocktail menus are split into four categories: Champagne cocktails, house cocktails, summer classics and “softies” (mocktails). To narrow it down we recommend the Plum Mai Tai which is a beautiful blend of rum, lime, homemade plum jam, almond, and plum bitters. There is also an impressive wine selection here, alongside a lunch time happy hour.
I think it’s safe to say 100 Hoxton have all areas covered, so if you are after good quality dishes and drinks we can’t recommend it here enough.
