The Times: Giles Coren reviews Apothecary

A Shoreditch Izakaya

“And this week it’s an izakaya in EC2. It’s on the site of the much missed Merchants Tavern, a casualty of lockdown, which former co-owner Dominic Lake (who was in it with Angela Hartnett and Neil Borthwick) has resuscitated in partnership with the brilliant Rohit Chugh of Roti Chai (he is one of the great menu development men of our time) and chef Jude Sam, formerly of Villandry, and named Apothecary for the old Victorian drugs business that used to operate here.”

Guests are encouraged to order one of a wide selection of cocktails, beers, or sakes before taking time to study the a la carte menu.
