ABOUT THE RESTAURANT

A highly-talented young chef with an impressive CV choosing edgy Hackney Wick for their first solo venture might sound a little left-field, but Tom Brown (a Nathan Outlaw protégé and previous head chef of Outlaws at the Capital) has done exactly this, a fact that only makes Cornerstone all the more fascinating. This new seafood joint is making big waves. The vibe is super cool, light and relaxed; a handsome monochrome, industrial look with retro bow-back chairs and black tabletops and dominant central-hub kitchen. Confidently exposed, Brown’s team turns out dazzling seafood sharing-plates in the simple but brilliantly executed genre, backed by standout ingredients, flavour and balance. Take a sensational opener of pickled oyster served with celery, dill and subtle kick of horseradish, followed perhaps by headlining whole, sparkling-fresh John Dory (on the bone), again simply delivered with a silky roast chicken butter sauce. Round-off proceedings with a classy dark chocolate fondant, orange and whisky. Bubbly, informed service hits a high note too.
