Sood and Bottles - a hidden Italian gem in the heart of Spitalfields

A new partnership between one of London’s most exciting Italian-food pop-ups and a popular wine bar is going great guns in Old Spitalfields Market.

This summer Bottles opened its second bar and joined forces with restauranteurs Sood Family, which until recently was running in Nuno Mendes’ The Kitchens. They describe the vibe as: “Italian warmth with London edge".

The bar is fast gaining a reputation for brilliant fresh lunches – the menu includes small plates and fresh pasta dishes and there's a large outside area that can seat up to 30.

They’re the latest business to join the Local Buyers Club – offering members 20% off food any time (info here). Sood currently offers a two-course lunch for £15 Monday to Friday and have an after-work happy hour with discounted food and drink.
