Location: 94-96 Commercial Street, E1 6LZ
Description: May 2003 saw the opening of St. John Bread and Wine, sister restaurant to the already established St. John in Smithfield.
Located across the road from Spitalfields Market on Commercial Street, in what had been a variety of banks, the bakery, wine shop and dining room is open seven days a week selling wines, bread and other baked goods along with offering a full al a carte menu and catering for larger groups.
This really is a classy joint and well worth a visit, check out the website for more information - http://www.stjohnrestaurant.co.uk/.
Care and attention has also been taken in regard to the architecture, which is always nice - much like St. John, the basic structure of the building remains intact, with the vaults below used for dry goods and the wine cellars.
